Microsoft Edge is the revised version of the old good Internet Explored. It came and worked with Windows 10. However, due to the Chromium kernel, it doesn't attract many users. We should also consider his predecessor's “bad reputation”. But those who know a lot about browsers, security, speed, and other things will admit that both Internet Explorer and its newer version offer the highest level of security, among other things. However, Microsoft recently announced that it is adding new features to users of the Canary development arm.
In particular, under "Data protection" you will find the option "Preload websites to speed up surfing and searching" and settings menu of the services. If this option is activated, the Microsoft Edge browser based on the Chromium kernel can find all links on the current website page and preload the next most likely page (DNS prefetch).
In fact, the "preload" appears in the Google Chrome browser. Operation is activated by default. This function, which can speed up surfing and searching, can be found under "Settings> Privacy".
Although other third-party browsers based on the Chromium kernel have already activated this function, the new version of Microsoft Edge is being introduced. This setting option in the Canary Development branch is used for the first time and is activated by default.
Disable Microsoft Edge page preload option?
If you want to turn off preloading for privacy reasons after you enable it, you can also do so. To change Edge Canary settings, see the following methods:
- Start the new version of the Microsoft Edge browser.
- Click the & # 39; … & # 39; and select & # 39; Settings & # 39 ;.
- Go to & # 39; Privacy & Services & # 39 ;. > & # 39; Services & # 39 ;;
- Check "Preload webpage to speed searching and searching".
Note: If you have an extension that controls or manages it, you must disable or remove it before following the steps above.
Microsoft Edge takes second place
As mentioned above, the Microsoft Edge browser has taken a surprising step. Last year, the Redmond-based company decided to rebuild its Chromium-based browser, the same foundation as Google Chrome. These and other factors, such as the popularity of Windows 10, have of course made Edge the second most popular desktop browser.
NetMarketShare reports that Microsoft Edge has significantly increased browser market share and outperformed Mozilla Firefox.
It seems the position of Google Chrome is steadfast. It still has a dominant lead in almost 69.18% of the market, but Edge is now at 7.76%.
