Earlier today, Microsoft pushed out the latest build of Windows 10 to Microsoft Windows Insiders, windows 10 build 10240. With the Windows 10 general release being right around the corner, this build is mostly a bug smashing update, just like the last few releases, but in this version, Edge has gotten a few enhancements as well.
Under the hood changes for Edge have improved the browsers’ performance when compared to Chrome. The company released a few stats to showcase the performance improvements.
- 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
Microsoft has also removed the watermark in this build, a clear sign that this channel is the one that the company is using to provide builds to consumers around the world on July 29th.
You can download this build now by searching for the release using Windows Update and while we do not expect there to be any new features the company has not discussed, let us know if you find any differences in the comments below.
