Video: Browser makers to block intrusive ad formatsOpera claims its eponymous web browser is "far faster than Firefox Quantum 58." Mozilla claims its better use of CPU time makes Firefox really fast. And when I turned on Edge the other day, it claimed it's the fastest browser of all.OK, they can't all be right. So, which Windows 10 web browser is the fastest of them all? I put the most popular Windows 10 browsers to the test. These were Windows 10's built-in Edge 41 and the increasingly decrepit Internet Explorer (IE) 11. I also checked out the latest versions of Chrome 64, Firefox 58, and Opera 51. Before I jump into the testing, I should mention Opera is something of a Google Chromium -- the open-source version of Chrome -- clone. It uses the WebKit/Chromium rendering engine. That's why Chrome and Opera's performance numbers are often close to being identical. I benchmarked these browsers on my Windows 10 test PC, a Dell XPS 8910.

That being the case, here are some of the most commonly-encountered problems that arise when installing or upgrading to the new version of Windows. If you’ve got Windows 10 installation problems, you’ve come to the right place. Side note: If the latest version of Windows 10 is experiencing widespread problems, you may also want to wait.

Not an ideal outcome! It’s a good idea to research the latest update first to see if there are any notable issues, a sign that you should perhaps hold off on the update anyway and check back later to see if a trouble-free version is available.

You're interested in upgrading or making the switch to Windows 10, but you're not sure which edition is right for you. Like previous versions of Windows, there are a handful of options to choose from. Most have the same core features, plus some extras for specific types of users. Here's a breakdown of each edition and what it has to offer to help you decide which PC edition of Windows 10 is best for you. Do you need a 64-bit version or a 32-bit version of Windows 10?
