Microsoft has improved the performance of the Edge browser version 102, but so far only on Windows. Now it automatically compresses the disk cache, reducing the disk space required for the program to work.
“Starting with Microsoft Edge 102 for Windows, the browser will automatically shrink disk caches on users’ devices that qualify for this operation. Compressing the cache will greatly improve performance and overall user experience”, — said the developers of Microsoft Edge.
The company explained that a larger cache size speeds up the loading of web pages, since the browser does not need to re-download data from the network. However, there is a downside – on devices with a small amount of memory, there may not be enough space for the cache. Compression allows you not to sacrifice performance for the sake of space.
“One way to expand cache usage while minimizing disk usage is the ability to continually use compression to save disk space for cached content,” Microsoft said.
