Microsoft Edge can stream your favorite Netflix shows at 1080p

Internet Explorer is an old web browser developed by Microsoft that pretty much everyone hated due to its unsecured nature and the random bugs that would continually plague the browser. Luckily, Windows 10 users have been offered an alternative in Edge and with so many people jumping onboard, it’s clear that Microsoft’s newest browser offering is a bigger hit — especially since many users are foregoing Firefox and Opera to use it.

According to Microsoft, its Edge browser boasts greater battery efficiency and is the only desktop browser able to stream 1080p videos from Netflix. It seems that Firefox, Opera and Chrome browsers are limited to 720p according to tests conducted by Remond, resulting in Microsoft Edge providing the highest quality content with the least amount of battery.

With this, surely more and more users will ditch other popular browsers for Microsoft Edge. In addition, Microsoft Edge will also receive extensions which are now being tested by those users who are part of the Windows Insider Program. Edge’s developers will also introduce other features and improvements to the application in the near future, so we think it’s just a matter of time until more PC owners running Windows 10 will start using Microsoft Edge browser

Are you using Microsoft Edge or do you prefer to surf the internet using Firefox, Chrome or Opera?
