As previously reported, Microsoft recently added a feature called Sleeping Tabs which will save users RAM and CPU by changing the state of open tabs to Sleep or asleep.
Related to this feature, recently Microsoft has also explained how the benefits of the Sleeping tabs feature and provides a comparison of the average RAM and CPU users without and with sleeping tabs.
Microsoft Edge average CPU usage based on performance data collected on ~ 13000 devices
Microsoft Edge average memory usage based on performance data collected on ~ 13000 devices
In the comparison chart you can see above, RAM usage when enabling the Sleeping tabs feature has decreased Average 26% for RAM usage. In addition, Microsoft also notes that tabs running in the background without using the sleeping tab use 29% more CPU than when the Sleeping tabs feature is activated.
With this feature, of course another effect is that besides being able to increase performance and save CPU and RAM resources, this can also save battery quite well.
How? this feature is interesting right ?, for now this Sleeping tab feature is still available in Edge Canary 87.0.643.0 or later by enabling Experimental Flags
