Windows 10 Preview Edge 20 and IE 11 Browser Performance Tests

Here's a couple of popular performance test for browsers tested using Window 10 Preview using the new Edge browser and IE 11. 

The 1st browser test is the ever popular,  which test how well a browser supports HTML5. 

Here's how Edge 20.10240.16384.0 and IE 11 running on Windows 10 Preview stacks up. Edge 20 has 66 point lead over IE 11.

Just to review what the HTML5 Test sites does, here some info from their FAQ file. 

Why do you include specifications that are not part of HTML5?

HTML5 means different things to different people. You could argue that HTML5 only includes features that are defined in the W3C HTML5 specification. Or you could argue that it includes every specification, draft or experimental feature that is added to browsers in the last couple of years. We decided to take the middle ground and split the test into three parts: the official HTML5 specification, specifications that are related to HTML5 and some experimental new features that are extensions of HTML5.

Many of the related specifications were at one time part of HTML5. During the development of the specification they were moved to separate specifications.

But WebGL isn't even a W3C specification!

The W3C isn't the only organization that creates open specifications for the web. The WebGL specification is published by Kronos, the same group that is also responsible for OpenGL. WebGL is related to HTML5 though and listed as one of the HTML5 technologies on the W3C HTML5 logo page. The W3C HTML5 specification allows the canvas element to be extended by new drawing methods and WebGL is one of them.

The 2nd browser test is the Javascript  Performance Test Suite choosen because it runs the Mozilla JavaScript performance test suite which includes Dromaeo JavaScript Tests, SunSpider JavaScript Tests and  V8 JavaScript Tests all in one place. The higher the number the better.

Seup: These test take up to 15mins to run and depends on your VM Setup. I was using VirtualBox 4.3.28 with 3-i7 processors and 4 Gigs of memory.

Here's how  Edge 20.10240.16384.0 on Windows 10 Preview stacked up. 

Here's how  IE  11.10240.16384 on Windows 10 Preview stacked up. 

Here's how  Firefox 39 on Windows 10 Preview stacked up. 

Here's how  
Chrome 43.0.2357.134m on Windows 10 Preview stacked up.
