If you want to watch true 1080p content from Netflix on your PC, you need to use Microsoft’s Edge browser.
“The other three browsers capped at 720p,” said PCWorld.
The publication stated that Edge can receive a higher resolution and bitrate when streaming Netflix, beating its main rival Google Chrome.
Netflix’s help page stated that the browsers which can stream 1080p content are Edge, Internet Explorer, and Safari on Mac OS X 10.3 and up.
The test by PCWorld follows recent tests by Microsoft showing that Edge is more power efficient than Chrome, Firefox, and Opera on Windows 10 devices.
