Edge Canary Update

Two new Microsoft Edge features have arrived on Windows 10. Microsoft Edge performance mode and capability to add text to PDF are now available for Edge insiders in in the Canary channel.

Microsoft Edge performance mode:

Microsoft Edge has a new performance mode that can be toggled “on” in settings. It is part of a controlled feature roll-out and one needs to be on Canary Build 91.0.856.0 or higher for a chance to get this feature.

The blurb provided in the description reads,Performance mode helps you optimize speed, responsiveness, memory, CPU and battery usage. Performance improvements might vary depending on your individual specifications and browser habits.”

When you turn on Performance mode by using the toggle, sleeping tabs timer becomes unavailable. While it is a a controlled feature rollout, you can turn it on using the below code.


Add text to PDF:

This feature has landed with Microsoft Edge Canary build Version 91.0.859.0. Using this feature, you can add text to any PDF opened in Microsoft Edge with your keyboard. Though the feature works with pen too for touch screens.
