After months of teasing and speculation, Windows Insiders and intrigued media finally received an official name for Microsoft's new browser initiative. Initially the browser was known as Project Spartan, however recently it received its official name, Edge.

According to Microsoft, Edge is setting a higher and better benchmark than Internet Explorer 11 and its comparable or better than other modern day browsers. Even in Octane 2.0 benchmarks, Edge outpaced Internet Explorer 11 and scored higher than Chrome Canary and Firefox Alpha. With the Jetstream benchmark, Edge beat out Internet Explorer 11, Chrome, and Firefox. 


Microsoft attributes these leaps in performance to the more than 4,200 interoperability improvements the new browser maintains. According to the development team behind Edge, the Edge browser was designed to help developers focus on content rather than browser compatibility moving forward.

One feature that was mentioned during the Edge presentation was the ability to turn websites into apps that leverage unique Windows 10 features like Xbox live achievements. While this news is rather impressive, it seems to be only part of the story for Edge.

We're sure to see more information on how Edge can be leveraged in the Windows Store, Windows Phone, and Enterprise. We’ll be sure to keep you posted. Stay tuned!
