Windows 10 and Edge vs Google Chrome
« on: April 18, 2019, 08:14:54 am »
I have a Lenovo notebook which is about 6 months old and a HP Laptop which is only a couple of weeks old, both are experiencing problems with Google Chrome like pages very slow to load and quite often Google not responding, when it was happening on the Levono I put it down to buying a cheap notebook, however, the HP Laptop was in the region of £450 and has the same issue.  I notice when I click Edge I get a performance comparison showing how much faster Edge is compared to Google Chrome and Firefox, call me cynical but could it be that Microsoft are deliberately slowing down other browsers so you use theirs?

Try the chrome popup / ad blocker extension as waiting for adverts to load can really slow some websites down.

I've got a Surface Pro 2017 and whilst Edge is indeed quite fast my go to browser is still Google. There is just too much that is not compatible with Edge.

Well, if Microsucks are slowing down other browsers deliberately, they're doing so selectively at the very least, as I'm not experiencing any slowdowns with Firefox, Chrome and Opera.
I'm also not seeing a lot of comments to the same effect across the web, so I suspect something else may be up.

Some questions rise :
Are you using any sort of adblocker, scriptblocker, etc. ?
If so, are they up to date, are any blocklists they use up to date ?
When's the last time you cleaned out the cache and cookies for those browsers ?
Are the browsers up to date on both devices ?
How did you install them, from the web or from Microsucks' app store ? (if the latter, UNINSTALL, never use the app store again, and download a fresh version off Google's website)
How are the systems connected to the internet ?
If by WiFi, are drivers/firmware on the systems up to date, is your WiFi Access point up to date and secure ?
Are you sure your browsers aren't compromised by a bad plugin or malware of sorts ?
