The Edge team has been continuing to optimize performance since first adding the new browser to Windows 10. In this build, Microsoft Edge is even better and is beating Chrome and Safari on their own JavaScript benchmarks:

  • On WebKit Sunspider, Edge is 112% faster than Chrome
  • On Google Octane, Edge is 11% faster than Chrome
  • On Apple JetStream, Edge is 37% faster than Chrome

AMD Catalyst

As you already know, on PCs and tablets Microsoft has added “Mobile” to the Office app names to help distinguish them from the Office desktop suite. Also they have removed “Preview” from the app names and from next week, you will need an Office 365 subscription to edit on Windows 10 PCs and larger tablets.

Another small but important thing, the desktop watermark is no longer there.

My AMD catalyst graphics card updated to take advantage of Microsoft’s new graphics implementation.  At the same time as Windows 10 RTM build 10240 was downloading.
