Is Microsoft Edge faster than Firefox?

For this purpose I will be using Microsoft Edge Dev and Firefox stable version. The bench-marking tool I will be using is Basemark Web 3.0.

My machine is HP Pavilion Power 15 (cx-0056wm).

  • I5-8300H
  • 8GB RAM
  • GTX 1050ti 4GB

Let’s get started.

First of all I will be running benchmark on browsers with a couple of extensions on, which I normally use. Then I will re-run the test again in incognito mode without any extensions enabled.

The benchmark will be done with just single instance of browser running and just one tab open.

Firefox

First, let’s benchmark Firefox.
