The new mode is available to some testers utilizing the Microsoft Edge Canary version of the browser, and others can empower it physically with a flag. “Performance mode helps you optimize speed, responsiveness, memory, CPU and battery usage,” says Microsoft. “Performance improvements might vary depending on your individual specifications and browser habits.”
It’s not satisfactory precisely how the performance mode changes Edge, however it influences the Sleeping Tabs feature. If you enable performance mode, the Sleeping Tabs timeout will be locked to five minutes.
