We are having the same issue. Edge seems to open from 9-10 processes per tab open. It seems to be using a lot of CPU clocks. This seems to be a huge issue and hopefully they will address this in future builds.

Check Version 18.104.22.168 (Official build) Canary (64-bit) out, I think the CPU high usage has been fixed.

Can someone post Browser Task Manager screenshot confirming that? We need to move on with testing, but some folks already uninstalled Edge.

@sambul95 Can you do it yourself? As a techician yourself, do not trust anyone else, instead "trust" yourself and "trust" your own eyes.

My name is Tim Scudder and I’m a member of the Edge performance team. I wanted to provide an update on this issue: we were able to repro the problem locally, we have a fix coded, validated and are now working to get this change into our next dev drop (estimated to be 22.214.171.124).
We apologize for the inconvenience, but truly appreciate everyone’s help in isolating the problem.
NOTE: We are also aware of a VSync timer tick issue that also has CPU/battery impact that originated upstream in Chromium's codebase. This issue has been fixed upstream and we are also working to make sure the fix is in our next dev drop (again, estimated to be 126.96.36.199)

Thanks for the update and your involvement in this matter. It shows how much more efficient product development is when augmented by direct communication with keenly interested browser testers. :)
