Edge Chromium loads it in 2,59 seconds.
The old Microsoft edge loads it in 0.88 seconds.
With Opera I can't even start the timer so let's say 0 seconds.
Is it that Edge Chromium had to go query the DNS, hit the CDN servers, pull the data, then older Microsoft Edge brought it in the memory for caching purposes and Opera just copied the already loaded page and show it to you?
Ignore the rest if you enjoy using Opera
I am not saying that I do not like Opera, but lately, Opera has been hijacking my sessions from other browsers, especially Chrome. And I have hated that, always. I tried to post this as a bug on Chrome but one of the Opera engineers said that they ask for permission. But, clearly, they never do. It is merely a download, install and continue where you left off in Chrome.
At least Firefox and other browsers try to request data import, Opera never does, and brings in the logged-in sessions for several sites.
It might be that Opera uses the same internal engine that is why, or whatever, apart from the internal VPN and ad blocker, the browser sucks.

I had nothing in particular against the old Edge, excep one couldn't drag the current URL from the tab bar...
So I might not care about the new Edge if they have the same basic UI functionality missing...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
To be fair, it's a minority of my systems that run into these sorts of problems.
OTOH, it's still a little disconcerting when my Server 2019 VM started exhibiting update problems so soon after that was still a recent, full, and clean install...running on their own hypervisor, so the physical hardware is abstracted away...
I'm not aware of any "large font" problem. That's a user choice.
I have a 4K display, and refuse to rescale the UI "because I have the pixels to spare". No, I want to run it at its native resolution, otherwise I'm just wasting screen real-estate (using up to twice as many pixels to render the same amount of data). Across 40", the text is actually smaller than it is on the 27" 1080p monitor I have sitting next to it.
Or are you talking about something else altogether?
I have weak eyes and with those high resolution monitors the normal font size is way too small... So I use 125%...
And if you Google for Windows 10 DPI you will see what I have here...
One of the fascinating things, that if I create a brand new WinForm application (using latest VS2019) it looks perfect in the designer (assuming I have configured VS compatibility mode correctly) but blurred when running... So I either have to set the exe's compatibility or change the form's properties in VS...
An other one is that IIS manager seems to be immune to any configuration I threw at it...

100%, 150%, and 200% work on W10
125% exists as an option but is broken, a similar effect can be reached by taking off your glasses (if you need them) or looking through fog. It used to work on 7 (maybe?) and 8 (definitely), and that old way of "actually working" can be resurrected with some weird 3rd party program that applies a registry setting at boot (Windows really likes to un-apply the setting).
