Microsoft Edge Introduces ‘Sleeping Tabs’

Microsoft has introduced a new feature to its Edge browser, designed to improve the memory and CPU usage of its browser.

To save system resources, Microsoft Edge will put tabs to sleep that haven’t been used for a while, and then wake them as soon as they are clicked.

Microsoft claims each sleeping tab saves 85 per cent of memory and 99 per cent CPU for Microsoft Edge. And in case you aren’t convinced, Microsoft have also added a little counter that shows how much memory you are saving with this feature.

This nifty feature will be available from Microsoft Edge 100.
