Question

Is Microsoft purposely making other browsers slower?

I have Chrome and Firefox and recently each one are becoming slower and slower. Here is an article stating Microsoft is warning to stop using Chrome and Firefox and use Edge because it is faster and safer.

It is not as much as loading a page, but when clicking on Chrome icon, it takes forever to load. This goes as well for Firefox.

Try some google search example as the spambot may reject some links.

As to your find, Chrome loads here in under 2 seconds. I have it on the SSD drive so things move pretty fast. I also don't use the ISP's DNS and load a blank page for speed.
