Is Microsoft Edge safer than Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox?

“Chrome set the bar high. Firefox couldn’t match it. Edge jumped right over it.” – VentureBeat

“…unlike Chrome, Edge doesn’t hog so much of computer’s power. On a Web-browsing battery test, the Dell XPS 13 lasted an hour longer with Edge than with Chrome. When streaming Netflix, it lasted two full hours longer.” – Wall Street Journal

According to NSS Labs. Microsoft Edge blocks more phishing sites and socially engineered malware than Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. See details here
