Been trying the new Edge based on the Chromium engine. Have noticed it uses a lot less memory when browsing Facebook than Firefox. Would often see my virtual memory peak at 15gb used when scrolling lots on facebook along with about 15 other open tabs. Edge with about the same amount of tabs and facebook scrolling seems to max out my virtual memory at 12GB.
When Firefox reaches 15GB VM it can slow down a bit, for example the reaction bar on posts is slow to pop up for selection. This doesn't happen in Edge but sometimes on edge changing pages takes a little few seconds. For example on a forum changing from main page to sub forum page takes a few seconds but reading posts is snappy as firefox.
Anyone else been using the New Edge?
