Steps to reproduce

This Page: https://mybrowser.microsoft.com/en-US/features/performance

… Claims Edge scores 31.6K on Google Octain vs Chrome’s 29.2K

I just ran the test on an i7 Surface Book with 16GB RAM and found Edge scores 25.8K vs Chrome’s 27.5K. Screenshot of results attached.

Either Edge is getting slower in recent builds, or Chrome is getting faster.

Either way, this marketing page is now a lie & needs to be removed:
