Ars Techica has an article describing how Chrome on Win 10 takes advantage of some new security features in the OS.

I would use Chrome before even thinking about IE or Edge on Windows 10. I don't believe edge has the ability to use addons currently. I refuse to use a browser where I cannot disable scripts on a page.

I didn't know you could disbale scripts in chrome either, I thought only firefox with noscript did that.

Chrome however is a pretty decent browser, it's certainly one of those easiest for people visiting webpages they absolutely know are safe and where they want advanced content to just work immediately rathe than needing enabling. Speaking for myself I use frefox for almost all browsing except a few sites which have no adverts, are very trustworthy and have videos, these I visit through chrome. As compared to IE and edge, chrome is a third party browser rather than a tool built deep into the heart of the OS. This means it's less common for exploits for it to be able to get to the rest of the system and cause harm, although it can still happen.

There's an extension called ScriptBlock for Chrome. It's just on/off switch for JavaScript. NoScript for Firefox gives you much more control in being able to disable individual scripts.
