Looks like some significant battery life improvements are coming are coming to Microsoft Edge, this time using some saving techniques discovered by good old Google.
The setting option is currently hidden behind a flag, but Google is set to apply it to Chrome on all major platforms, except iOS.
And since Chrome and the new Microsoft Edge share the same codebase now, the feature is also available in Edge on the Canary channel. You can access it today via the #intensive-wake-up-throttling flag that can be found in edge://flags.
Redmond has been heavily focused on improving battery life on Edge from the very start, which was one of the advantages of using the old, legacy version of the web browser.
And this little trick is right up its alley.
