Microsoft launched its big November update for Windows 10 last week, and along with it came a new version of its Microsoft Edge web browser. The company says that includes an improved version of its EdgeHTML rendering engine.
Microsoft says the new EdgeHTML 13 engine, which has been available for Windows Insider members to test for the past few months, has added a number of improvements and features that have helped to increase its performance compared to the older EdgeHTML 12 engine. It states:
"These updates bring Microsoft Edge to a score of 458 on HTML5Test – an improvement of 56 points in just a few months, and 117 points over Internet Explorer 11."
