    has the edge

    I accidentally found the sentence as shown below.

    "As of today I think the product has the edge...".

    What does "has the edge" mean?

    Re: has the edge

    It has an advantage, or it is ahead. Usually, only a small advantage or a small lead.

    . Think of a knife.

    You can also use edge as a verb in this sense:

    It was a very close race, but the American just edged it.
