RAM consumption decreased by up to 27%
When the browser uses a lot of RAM, it slows down the entire operating system. Accordingly, in order to avoid this, users have to limit the number of open tabs, well, and manufacturers decide on memory usage by the browser at their own level. Sometimes, as is the case with Edge, this happens.
Microsoft has improved the Edge browser. It uses less memory
As Microsoft notes in his blog, the company’s mission is to provide the best browser for Windows. He, of course, is Edge. The words of the developers are not at odds with the case: relatively recently, Edge switched to the Chromium engine and began to work faster. And after the release of the large functional update Windows 10 May 2020 Update, the browser has become even more economical with regard to RAM: its use has decreased by up to 27%. True, Microsoft makes a reservation that “performance on individual devices depends on configuration and use”, but on the whole, Edge should be more economical about memory.
