Microsoft released Internet Explorer in 1995. All of us have used IE for some or the other reason and we are united in hating the browser. While Google Chrome and Firefox have consistently upgraded their features, it has taken 20 years for Microsoft to come up with another browser.

Comparison with other browsers
Safari Browser uses WebKit as its layout engine. Chrome was using WebKit but later switched to Blink , forked from WebKit. Opera uses the same layout engine. Firefox, on the other hand uses Gecko. Edge will use a layout engine called EdgeHTML, derived from Trident(layout engine in IE).
If insider reports are to be believed, scrolling through webpages in Edge is a breeze. Edge wins hands down as far as compatibility between devices is concerned. Chrome, Firefox and Opera come no where near. Edge was able to play 1080p and 4K videos without major lag. Edge has been reviewed to be a battery saving app when compared to Chrome
The search through URL bar looks better when compared to other browsers. You get answers without having to open another page. Cortana integration is something that will distinguish the browser from its competitors. Built on Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform, the browser renders pages more uniformly across different devices
Microsoft has taken a big leap forward with Edge. This browser could be the next big thing. Minimalistic design, faster load times, integration with Microsoft services especially Cortana will be highly appreciated by the users.
