Microsoft is ready for the release of the Windows 10 operating system on July 29 and it will bring along Microsoft Edge, a new web browser that will replace Internet Explorer as the default browser of the Windows operating system.

Benchmark results of Microsoft Edge suggest that the upcoming Microsoft web browser could be a Chrome killer.

On Wednesday, July 15, Gabe Aul, head of the Windows Insider program, revealed that Microsoft Edge has proven to be faster on several benchmarks.

"The Edge team has been continuing to optimize performance since first adding the new browser to Windows 10," said Aul in a blog post. "Microsoft Edge is even better and is beating Chrome and Safari on their own JavaScript benchmarks."

Aul says that Microsoft Edge is 112 percent faster than Chrome on WebKit Sunspider. In comparison to Chrome, the upcoming Microsoft web browser is also 11 percent faster on Google Octane and 37 percent faster on Apple JetStream.

Experts claim that it is significant to note that Microsoft Edge has performed well in benchmarks that have been created by Google and Apple.

Aul also added that Microsoft is pleased with the new browser performance and hopes that users will enjoy faster browsing with Microsoft Edge.

A VentureBeat report indicates that in April, Internet Explorer occupied 55 percent of the worldwide web browser market. Chrome followed at the second position with over 25 percent of the market share while Firefox had just over 11 percent web browser market share.

Apple's Safari web browser had 5.12 percent and Opera had 1.19 percent of the global web browser market share.

Considering the benchmark results, Microsoft Edge may become the web browser of choice for many Internet users. However, rivals such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera and more may also bring improvements to stay on par with or be better than Microsoft Edge.

The seemingly efficient Microsoft Edge may convince more users to jump on board with Windows 10.
