The first upgrade, called Startup boost, launches Edge far more quickly by running a set of core Microsoft Edge processes in the background, all without adding additional resources when Microsoft Edge browser windows are open. This should mean users are able to boot up their PCs and get online without any lag.
And that’s not all as there’s also the introduction of something called “sleeping tabs.”
This feature gives Microsoft Edge a performance boost when using multiple browser tabs simultaneously.
Both of these upgrades should not only make Edge much faster but also less of a battery hog when using it on your laptop. Poor battery life is still something that plagues Chrome users when using this software on portable PCs with Google’s browser renowned for draining juice at record speeds.
We’ll have to wait and see what difference this update from Microsoft really makes but, if you want a more efficient way of accessing the web, Edge could be the way to go.
Late last week, a large number of Chrome users were hit by a hugely irritating glitch that saw the popular web software constantly crash on Microsoft-powered PCs.
If your PC has been hit by the glitch then the US tech firm has now issued full advice on how to get things running normally again.
In a post on its Chrome page, Google said: “On May 21, we began to receive reports that Chrome would crash unexpectedly for some Windows and Linux users. After conducting an investigation, we’ve identified the root cause and have released an update which resolves the behaviour.”
