Opera: Invalid Edge energy efficiency benchmarks

Tests published by Microsoft a few days ago showed that using the Edge browser on παρέχει μεγαλύτερη διάρκεια ζωής της μπαταρίας στη . The μάλιστα έδειχνα καθαρή υπεροχή του browser της Microsoft σε όλους τους αντιπάλους του, όπως το Google Chrome, τον and Opera.Browsers Opera

Since the first publication here at iGuRu.gr we mentioned that tests were carried out by Microsoft itself and we doubted their objectivity.

Was we right?

Opera is a company that has invested heavily in battery-saving technologies for its browser, so it decided to do its own testing to see if Microsoft's new browser is really the most energy efficient.

Tests have proven they are not.

"The dev version of Opera (39.0.2248.0) with native ad blocker and energy saving technology was able to run 22% faster than Microsoft Edge (version 25.10586.0.0) on a laptop running Windows 10, 64- bits, and 35% more than the latest version of Google Chrome (51.0.2704.103), ”the tests show.

Ενώ η Microsoft δεν έχει δώσει την ακριβή μεθοδολογία που χρησιμοποίησε για τον προσδιορισμό της κατανάλωση ενέργειας των browsers, η Opera έδωσε περισσότερα και εξήγησε ότι αυτό που έκανε ήταν μια “περιήγηση σε μια σειρά από δημοφιλείς ιστοσελίδες όπου η αυτοματοποίηση προσομοιώνει την αλληλεπίδραση με την ιστο, bringing the method closer to what we expect from a normal browsing of such a page.”

Opera's new battery saver feature, which helps reduce the energy required to browse , implements a number of software optimizations to improve battery life.

These include reducing activity in background tabs, automatically pausing unused plug-ins, reducing the frame rate to 30 fps, stopping animations in of the program , and waking up the CPU less often.

Of course, if Google decides to carry out its own tests, we will see Chrome winner.
