On Microsoft Edge Build 88, we are experimenting with a new feature called startup boost to improve the Microsoft Edge browser startup experience. To learn more about it, read the FAQ below.

 

Note: We are in the process of experimenting with this feature, so it may be a little while before you see it in your respective channel and build.

 

1. What is startup boost?
To improve Microsoft Edge startup speed, we have developed a feature called startup boost. Startup boost launches a set of Microsoft Edge processes in the background, so Microsoft Edge will become available more quickly when launched.

 

2. What benefits do I get from startup boost?
When you log on after device start-up or restart or when your browser is closed, Microsoft Edge will start more quickly when it is launched from the taskbar, desktop, and hyperlinks embedded in other applications.

 

3. What is the resource impact of startup boost?
Startup boost launches a set of browser processes in the background at low priority when the browser is closed, which has a limited impact on device resource usage.

 

4. How does startup boost work?
Startup boost starts core Microsoft Edge processes in the background to keep them ready when the browser is closed, so Microsoft Edge will become available more quickly when launched.

 

5. How do I know if startup boost is running?
You can check if the feature is on in the browser Settings under edge://settings/system.

 

6. Is startup boost available on all platforms?
Currently, startup boost is only available on devices with all versions of Windows.

 

7. Is startup boost available on all devices?

We are evaluating data and may remove devices that do not see expected positive impact.

 

8. What startup boost group policies will enterprises get?
We have a group policy that allows administrators and users to enable or disable startup boost.

 

9. Why do others see the feature, but I do not?
We are in the process of deploying this feature, so it may be a little while before you see it in your respective channel and build.

 

10. Can I turn off startup boost?
Yes, you can do this by toggling it off in the browser Settings under edge://settings/system.

 

11. How do I send feedback?
We are eager to get your feedback on startup boost. If you experience any issue, please let us know through Microsoft Edge by pressing Shift+Alt+I on a Windows device, click on the feedback icon in the upper right corner of the address bar, or going to Settings and more … > Help and feedback > Send feedback.

You can also discuss your experience here on the Microsoft Edge Insider forums and Twitter.

Did you test performance impact on heavy loaded RDSH / Citrix XenApp / Windows 10 Multi User / WVD servers?

It’s critical to do not generate any performance impact on multi users environments. It’s very different topic from performance measurement on single user OS

Thank you @Julie_Deng for sharing this feature.

Please also add some details about process in Task Manager, in case we want to investigate and see whether it is working as expected.

This is another brilliant idea,
I have both low and high end systems and can't wait to test this on them and report back findings. (though I hope Edge automatically sends diagnostics)

@Julie_Deng I like it! When will it be released to everyone? (build number?)

@Julie_Deng 

 

Yeah, I've had this for a week or so now, but I've not turned it on.

Edge Startup Boost 2020-10-26 071933.jpg

I use the Sleeping tabs feature and for me I see this as defeating the purpose of Sleeping tabs, which is to save/free up resources.   I look at it like one is defeating the other.  For me, why would I turn something on that uses and keeps resources and then turn something on that frees resources.  

Ok so you want to be able to start your browser faster, but for me I do not see it taking so much time to start edge that it would need this.  Edge starts quick enough for me on its own.  

 

Like I said, for me, I see no need for it, but I'm sure lots of others will.

But this is just my 20cents worth.

That's actually a good point of view!
I think sleeping tabs and start up boost is 2 completely different features for 2 different types of people.
people that have enough system resources and modern hardware can turn on startup boost to make things even faster, while people with low to mid hardware can use sleeping tabs to save resources.
Highlighted
Yes, all good points. They are definitely covering all their bases which is a good move on their part...

Thanks for checking out startup boost and sharing your feedback, Kam! We are currently testing on build of 88.0.674 or greater. We don't have a specific release date but will release the feature as soon as possible if there is no issue.

@Julie_Deng Ok, thank you!

Thanks for checking out startup boost and sharing your feedback, Reza!
When startup boost is turned on and no Edge browser window is open, you can find all running Edge processes by going to Task Manager -> Processes Tab -> Background Processes.
If you right click on the top naming roll (e.g. Name, Memory, CPU) you can add additional columns to Task Manager that will provide additional process details. You can also find more process details in Edge Browser Task Manage by pressing Shift+Esc while in Microsoft Edge or by going to the top corner of the browser and selecting more (…) -> More tools -> Browser Task Manager.

Hello @Julie_Deng 

 

I tested it and realized that there was a reduction in the choking on the browser startup

Thanks for checking out startup boost and sharing your feedback, Bildos!
Performance on multi users environment is important to us and we will reach out to enterprise customers for feedback as we get closer to releasing the feature on Beta and Stable channels. Please feel free to share any additional suggestions that you may have in the future. Appreciate it!

Thanks for checking out startup boost and sharing your feedback, eguif! Awesome video comparison!

@Julie_Deng 

So just like the other user said and showed with video/gif, I'm also experiencing the white flash.

The Startup boost causes a white flash to appear after launching Edge, for 1 or 2 seconds, before the browser UI is fully loaded.

 

so even though Edge obviously launches faster, but it doesn't change anything in practice because I still have to wait for the white flash be gone to start using the browser.

 

 

p.s when the feedback mini window is open (where I can type in description about my feedback) and start up boost is active, closing and reopening Edge is blazingly fast and without with flash.

 

so I'm assuming you have to preload some more Edge components for this white flash to be gone.

@HotCakeX But the other user (eguif) is saying that there's a reduction.

it's okay

Yeah. I think so! Too.
