Three Reasons Microsoft Edge Surpasses Google Chrome as a Web Browser


This article presents three compelling reasons that establish Microsoft Edge as a superior web browser when compared to Google Chrome.

In a previous article, we outlined three reasons that position Google Chrome as a superior web browser to Microsoft Edge. Granted, Google Chrome has maintained its dominance, holding over 65% of the market share. However, Microsoft Edge has been steadily gaining ground as a viable alternative in recent years. Here are three reasons why Microsoft Edge surpasses Google Chrome:

  1. Enhanced Privacy and Security: Microsoft Edge is renowned for robust privacy and security features. By default, Edge blocks third-party trackers and cookies, safeguarding your privacy and preventing data collection by advertisers. The browser also incorporates a customizable built-in tracker prevention feature. Furthermore, Edge boasts security measures such as Microsoft Defender SmartScreen, which helps block phishing and malware websites. The InPrivate browsing feature prevents the storage of browsing history, cookies, and temporary files on your device. Additionally, the Site Isolation feature isolates each visited website in its process, enhancing protection against malicious websites.
  2. Streamlined User Experience: Microsoft Edge provides a more user-friendly experience compared to Chrome. Features like vertical tabs enable a space-saving vertical tab display. Collections allow users to save and organize web pages, images, and text. The Reading mode eliminates distractions from web pages for focused content consumption. Edge supports extensions for customization, including Microsoft Translator, Evernote Web Clipper, Grammarly, and more.
  3. Seamless Integration with Windows: Similar to Chrome’s integration with Google’s ecosystem, Microsoft Edge has distinct advantages in integrating with Windows. As the default browser for Windows 10 and 11, Edge is tightly integrated with the operating system. This integration enables signing in to websites using Windows credentials, accessing Edge browsing history and favorites across Windows devices, and hands-free control using Cortana. Edge leverages Windows features such as Windows Defender Application Guard for isolation from other applications, Windows Hello for fingerprint or facial recognition sign-ins, and Microsoft Ink for note-taking and annotating web pages using a stylus or finger.
