Microsoft Edge Refocuses on Performance Optimization With New Canary Channel

For the most part, if you have a browser that is as fast as you would ideally want it to be then you most likely be using up a lot of processing power in order to take advantage of it. This holds true for Google Chrome as well as a whole host of other web browsers, and with Microsoft Edge being the second most used browser out there at this current point in time it is understandable to assume that it would be a similarly resource heavy program and for the most part this holds true.

Microsoft is clearly not happy with just playing second fiddle to Google Chrome because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making its products less impactful in the market, which is why the tech giant is starting to add a resource manager into Edge. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this resource manager has the potential to greatly reduce the kind of CPU power that Edge would require to operate at full capacity.

We often hear people complain about how using their favorite browser ends up making their computers a lot slower than they need to be. These people would definitely be happy that Microsoft is taking steps to make this less of a problem, and this might just be what Edge needs to start edging ever closer to Chrome. This might just spur Google to incorporate a resource manager into its own browser as well which would be a very interesting change. This just goes to show that when there is competition in the market, for the most part things like this tend to make the various products that are available a lot better in various ways.
