This is something that we have been able to verify since its initial launch, something that over time has been established. We tell you all this because right now Microsoft has announced that the Edge Vulnerability Research team is testing a new feature in this regard. They have called it Super safe mode and it has been created to bring new security enhancements to the program, without significant performance losses.
What is Edge’s Super Safe Mode
Activate the new security feature in your browser
To put it another way, with Super Safe Mode, problems are saved for users, but we increase those of attackers to succeed in their work. Also, although the JIT compiler is designed to increase the performance of the computer during program execution, disabling it in Super Safe Mode does not always have negative effects.
At the same time we must know that this is a mode that is still in the experimental phase. But with everything and with it the Super Safe Mode can be activated by users in the preliminary versions of Edge. Specifically, we refer to the versions Beta, Dev and Canary. For this, it is enough that we create the following in the address bar of the program:
Next, we will only have to activate the new security feature.
Edge 94 will put inactive tabs to sleep
Changing the third, Microsoft is also testing a new function in its preliminary versions of Edge, but now related to the use of the eyelashes. Thus, if we have a lot of tabs open, the ones that are running in the background can also consume resources. This will negatively affect system performance and the browsing experience. Therefore, it is now being tested Sleeping Tabs, a function to reduce memory consumption, CPU and battery.
This is a functionality that Microsoft added to Edge 94 in order to put inactive tabs to sleep. It is also important to know that these, to differentiate themselves from normal lashes, will look a little faded. Also, when you click on a tab in idle, it will be activated immediately. We have the possibility to adjust the time interval so that they go inactive to a minimum of 5 minutes.
To activate this in the Canary version of Edge, we access its setting and we are in System and performance. Here we will see the section on Saving resources with waiting tabs so that we can activate and configure it.
