Hi All,

                We posted a new blog article today that talks about some of the optimizations we have made in Microsoft Edge 81.  Swing over to the blog site, https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/02/13/performance-optimizations-edge-81/ and read more about it, then swing on back and let us know if you are seeing improvements, or have comments.

Thanks – Elliot

The benchmark data looks promising. hope Edge will stay one step ahead from all other browsers, specially Chrome.

@Elliot Kirk I have Canary 82.0.423.0 on a Surface Pro X, results are in the 36-38 range using the benchmarking software. I know that ARM is a very small sliver of the overall market, but when are we going to start seeing some love? Or is the benchmarking software off on ARM?

Hi @tboggs, are you running the native Arm64 version of the x86 version.  You should see a good bit of performance gain going from the x86 to the native client.  Thanks - Elliot

I was also informed that we have enabled some of the optimizations on the ARM64 builds, so you should stick with it.  you will see some gains, but probably not as much as on x64.

The current Edge Dev release is certainly the winner for me!

Edge Dev 81.0.416.6 (64 Bit) - Mean 137.1

Edge 80.0.361.54 (64 bit) - Mean 117.0

Firefox 73.0 (64 bit) - Mean 98.0

@Elliot Kirk I got 58~ on beta and 45 on canary. Something aint right :p
Jquery was very slow I noticed as well.

Oh, turning off dark reader gave me 133.3.
But I like making all things dark. Guess I'm stuck with a slow web :\

Just wondering if these performance improvements should be noticeable on macOS as well, I wasn't sure based on the post description talking about the Windows 10 version.

@Elliot Kirk Its definitely faster than it used to be. On battery saving power modes, the speed was reduced drastically. I ran each one 3 times and restarted the browser every time I changed power modes.

Best Battery(power saving mode):

45.6

46.3
47.1

Better Battery:

46.1

46.1

Better performance:
