New Microsoft Edge vs Chrome

Edge seems to be much better at managing memory usage and it's been announced that this will get even better.
(The comparison was made by having the same tabs open on both browsers)

Hi Bob, nice. But what really would interest me is how ASB does. Please add it to your list. :)

The other variable to consider is the amount of extensions running.

The early bird got the worm as they say, you got the Sunset.

A long time ago I regularly got sunset views, mainly because I was a night owl and I was going to bed then :)

Now I'm still up late but not so late as to watch the sunset, but not up early enough to watch them.

Facing West is on top and facing East is on the bottom.

They look like shot from two different days but are shot within seconds of each other.

As you can plainly see, we have sunshine today. We expect a high of 100 today so get that swamp cooler or ac going.

PUA detection in Windows Defender is doing a good job https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/threats/malware-encyclopedia-description?Name=PUA:Win32/CCleaner&ThreatID=277099

What a shame that one security firm has to clean up software provided by another security company :P

So Microsoft doesn't want their Defender turned off. I can't blame them.
They also would like you to continue using Edge and not have it replaced with Chrome.
I don't blame them.
If they get replaced, Microsoft stops getting the ad revenue and information and it winds up with another company.

Most other PUA detection software's will do the same thing and not something Microsoft has only just added to curb Google.

It's aim is to block any pre-checked software in all installers (not just Google as shown but Avast is also pre-ticked) with the 2004 update for the masses, though PUA has been possible to add through GPEDIT for quite some time.

Google is again in the Australian high court for deceptive practices - breaching privacy laws and data theft, I personally wouldn't touch anything Google and have all their web tracking blocked, I block Microsoft tracking also though I've found Microsoft far more upfront about their practices and openly provide the information to disable collective information.

I'm not defending Google or the prechecked installs. I'm simply stating some economic facts.
Maybe Windows 10 should have been labeled as a PUP? In addition to the OS, it installed a lot of additional crap not needed. :)
