Yes, I did an experiment with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Microsoft Edge (legacy version, EdgeHTML, Not Chromium) and Opera GX and I was sad to hear that Opera used up the second most RAM (while I was expecting Chrome to hog up the memory like lots of people say). Internet Explorer was the most efficient and Microsoft Edge Legacy was the worst. I also tried this with the new Microsoft Edge, which made a huge improvement on RAM usage. I tried all of the Microsoft Edge Insider channels and Microsoft Edge Canary was the most efficient. However, Opera GX was still more efficient than I had expected. Opera GX loads pages at a terrific speed, as if the browser were on fire! So overall, I recommend Opera (and if you are crazy about RAM usage, then I recommend Opera GX because you can limit your RAM usage). Thank you so much, Opera, for your two amazing browsers!
