well we all know reviews are not worth wasting the pixels they are displayed on,
and sometimes it's good to seek serious expert opinions,
but when genuine experts are in short supply why not ask them clow folks in the lounge?
we all know chrome is a CPU hog (this is where the folks with 8th+ generation CPU's claim otherwise)
- has anybody found (tried? tested??) if the new edge (the chrome versions with ms cool aide) same / better / worse?
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
I have both installed on a system (not the one I'm currently writing this on). I just launched both side-by-side, without loading any page (both are essentially showing about:blank).
Task Manager shows 8 instances of chrome.exe were launched (ugh!) vs msedge.exe's 7. Initially Chrome had 10, but after a few seconds that dropped down.
Given this, how do you even propose to come up with representative figures for a decent benchmark? FWIW, Task Manager's Process tab shows Chrome eating up 205MB of RAM, and Edge is at 110 (and as I'm writing this, I've just watched those figures drop to 180 and 78, respectively).
I don't know if anything meaningful can be extracted out of this.
Between that, the 12 instances of RuntimeBroker.exe and what must be 70+ instances of svchost.exe Task Manager is currently showing on this Windows 10 machine...is it any wonder that a system with 4GB of RAM is constantly paging nowadays? This particular system--an Intel NUC--has 16 and is snappy and responsive, but I know plenty of people who are still using systems with 4GB or even less.
I realize I haven't answered your question in the least. I'm just relaying what I'm looking at right now and shaking my head. "Throw more RAM at it" needs to stop being the solution to everything.
I certainly didn't. I have been using Chrome for years and have never had occasion to kill it owing to excessive CPU usage. I run on an I5 (not sure which generation) processor, if that has any bearing. Oh, and by the way, I rarely have fewer than 5 tabs open together.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

After switching jobs, it took me a few days to get into the procedures and new software etc. I was unfamiliar with bugzilla, and hadn't yet started investigating it, but in every standup, there were references to bugzilla ticket numbers. There were frequent references to the "84" problems: Other numbers were a lot higher, so I assumed that ticket 84 was some really old problem still waiting for its solution.
After a few days, I discovered that the "84" problems were related to the conformance tester we were using, manufactured by the the company named "AT4 wireless".
Reminds me of a contract I took in Birmingham, many years ago.
Everyone kept referring to an office in Borsleeth that I would have to visit, to look at their processes. I was new to Brum, so had no idea where that was.
It wasn't until I was about to get in the car and drive there that I asked for the exact address, to look it up in the A to Z[^] (there were no internet maps or smartphones, at the time), and found it was in Balsall Heath, which I drove through every day.

Just reading through an article on Amazon and mentions the rekognistion tool, and that some "civil right activists claim it could lead to wrongful arrests".
Its a tool. Yes, I understand if someone dumb and just relies on a tool 100%, that is on the human misusing the tool.
A human is still involved in the process.
It probably took a long time for CCTV black/white video recordings and camera to be tolerated. But it always sounds like person recognition tools are far worse.
My basic understanding: At a big stadium you can have police focused on more intensive tasks then tons scanning the crowd.
You still have a few scanning the crowd.
Face detect tool identifies someone of high interest.
Info is directed to nearest officer to approach.
Office now should handle the rest as if they spotted the person them self.
If a wrongful arrest happens, that is the fault of the existing system in place.
If the computer made a lock or release decision, then I would be against it. That is NOT what it is being used for.
"oh, but their are cases where judges use machine-learning tools to make decisions". Again, that is a poor judge mis understanding how the tool should be used - weather that is lack of training or been trained in a missleading way by the sellers of the tool.
Now let me use this to better detect my cat to allow into the house. I still have a 10% fail that the neighbors cat is being allowed in. both tabbies and I think its something to do with the lighting
Have you seen the results of tests of the systems?
They make far too many mistakes -- mistakes which could result in your being locked up in a police cell for a day or two, until these processes that you appear to have so much trust in are completed in your favour.
... That's IF they are completed in your favour; otherwise you could end up being locked up a lot longer.
But I suppose that's OK, as long as it only happens to other people, eh?
