    Edge for us as well including the ability via the dev menu options to emulate Chrome for 95% of sites that might explicitly require it.


    OTOH, if battery life is the absolute top requirement, Opera is the champ here in our tests by roughly 15-20%

    Is that with any particular extension loadouts, or only comparing pure vanilla Edge vs pure vanilla Opera?

    If it can improve the efficiency of javascript-heavy extensions by >10%, that's mighty impressive.

    Javascript generally is the albatross for all browsers regardless.

    Our tests are based on "real world " load outs of things like extensions and access of websites and apps that our customer base use on a regular basis to do the actual tasks required.

    A deep dive in what you are asking is above our pay grade:cool::D

    Thanks for sharing that Dale. I have now moved my ProX in to production with the docking station and all and it’s still working great on 11 so I have been strongly considering doing the upgrade on my Go2. This helps hearing others feedback for sure.

    Dodgy advertising practices though and Chinese owned.

    What kind of dodgy ads practice? Last time it was just some preinstalled bookmarks.

    Not a usability concern for users in developed countries just a moral one, but in some developing countries they were (I'm not sure if they are anymore) pushing some quite predatory loans.

    And their response was to accuse the initial reporters of trying to short their shares. I'm not sure about you, but I don't use the products of such ****ty companies if I can help it.
