Greetings Microsoft Edge Insiders!

 

My name is Allison and I am a PM working on improving the performance of the new Microsoft Edge browser.

 

Previously, your feedback let us know that there are times when Edge uses too much memory and CPU. When was the last time this happened to you? What were you doing in this situation? What was your biggest concern about that amount of memory and CPU usage? We are curious about this and would love to learn more.

 

Thank you for giving us your honest feedback. I look forward to hearing more about where you see Microsoft Edge meeting your expectations, and where it isn’t.

@Allison_Pastewka Hello. my friend has very often high CPU and aperated memory when working microsoft edge. it happens even with everyday tasks. such as visiting sites watching movies downloading files, etc. the load on the processor jumps up to 100%. still wanted to add his wish. I would like notifications from sites even when microsoft edge is closed.

@Allison_Pastewka 

 

I would like Browser Task Manager to have an option to always be displayed on top of the other windows (including obviously the Edge window), so it is better for me to monitor the memory and CPU usage of pages and extensions as I browse the pages.

@Allison_Pastewka забыл добавить. нагрузка на ресурсы происходит в версиях dev и canary.

Don't know if this is too much or normal.
I have 8 GB RAM.
I have Edge Beta with 2 profiles: 1 open with 3 pages and 2 open with 3 pages.

Memory 57%
CPU 8%

Thanks.

@Allison_Pastewka 

 

Forgot.
I've tried several browsers. I would recommed that you take a look at how Slimjet manages memory. I have found that Slimjet is the chromium browser that has the least impact on memory.
Thanks.

any new information? the last post is 8/31

Thank you for the additional information regarding the memory and CPU usage you're seeing on your devices. We're using this information as we continue to work on ways to improve performance of the new Edge browser.

@Allison_Pastewka I have been seeing my CPU usage getting stuck on 150% right after I download attachments from the Fastmail web interface. I can replicate this every time.

I am running Dev 79.0.294.1 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6.

@harbortype  Thanks for reaching out! I just tried the repro steps that you provided on Dev build 79.0.301.2 and didn't see a spike in CPU. Can you please try updating your Dev build to see if the issue still persists and let me know. Thanks!

@Allison_Pastewka It seems to be working now. Thank you for having a look into it.
