NIXsolutions: Edge Browser to Introduce RAM Limiting Feature

Since Edge replaced Internet Explorer as the default browser on Windows, it has added a host of features that have helped it overtake Firefox in popularity to become the second most popular browser in the world, behind only established leader Chrome.


Edge’s Rise in Popularity

One of the interesting innovations that will soon appear in Edge will be a function that allows you to limit the amount of RAM available to the Internet browser.

Introducing RAM Management

An insider known as @Leopeva64 posted on his social media account X pictures of the settings menu of one of the latest beta versions of Edge. The images demonstrate the new “Resource Management” option. This tool will allow you to limit the amount of RAM consumed by the browser.

Customizable RAM Allocation

For example, if the PC has 16 GB of RAM installed, the browser will display a scale from 1 to 16, thanks to which the user can clearly indicate how much memory the browser can use. In addition to this, you can choose whether the set limit should always be respected or whether this should only be done when a game is running on the PC.

Enhanced Performance for Older Devices

The new feature may be especially useful for users of older PCs with little RAM, notes NIXsolutions. This is because limiting the amount of memory used by the browser can directly affect the overall performance of the device.

At this stage, the new option is available to Edge beta users on the Canary channel. It is still unknown when exactly it may become publicly available. We’ll keep you updated on any developments regarding this feature.
