High CPU Usage caused by MSN NTP Service Worker.

Edge Version 88.0.705.50 (Official build) (64-bit)

Windows 10

 

This happens even when I don't have a blank 'new tab' open.

I have reported the issue via the 'Send Feedback' and included a Diagnostic Log.

Hi,
try turning this off
"Preload the new tab page for a faster experience"
in
edge://settings/newTabPage

@BaSsGaz I'm on Mac OS and experiencing the same thing. CPU is ramped and it's making Edge pretty un-useable today.

 

Submitted a report and crossing my fingers this gets fixed...

 

edit: tried the above idea of disabling the preload new tab experience....did nothing, the service is still going nuts at times
