Microsoft’s latest effort to popularize Edge is all about convincing gamers to try out the browser. The company is introducing several new gaming-focused features to Edge slated to become available today.

One of them includes a new “Efficiency mode” setting that promises to reduce the browser’s system resource usage, freeing up more computing power to run your favorite PC games.  “With this feature, you do not need to close the browser to play and reopen it when you are done.

As soon as you close the game, Microsoft Edge will exit Efficiency mode and get you right back to where you left off,” the company CVP Liat Ben-Zur wrote in a blog post(Opens in a new window).

The new Efficiency mode is available under the “System and performance tab” in the settings panel. For casual gamers, Microsoft is also adding a dedicated “Games” menu in the browser’s three-dot (...) panel, which can access a list of free-to-play web-based games.
