Microsoft releases a new report which claims Microsoft Edge can stay with you longer while watching your favorite movies and TV series. This was followed by their previous report claiming the built-in Windows 10 browser will give you more battery when it comes to web browsing. The Redmond-based company highlights video hardware acceleration, PlayReady Content Protection, and Protected Media are designed to provide highest quality, most secure, and most power-efficient for video playback on any version of Windows. They said that Microsoft Edge is optimized to take advantage of these Windows 10 built-in media capabilities.
Microsoft Edge ranks at #1 with 7:22 hours of video playback, followed by Opera 38 with 6:18, Mozilla Firefox 46 with 5:09, and Google Chrome 4:19.
The report also claims that Microsoft Edge is not just the most power efficient, but is also receiving higher resolution and bitrate video compared to other browsers. It means that when you play a 1080p video on Edge and 720p on other browsers, it will just consume the same amount of battery.
Microsoft wants us to know that using Edge on video playbacks will gives us the longest battery life without compromising the quality.
