Microsoft is going to make Edge more attractive to gamers and plans to add a gaming mode to its browser — Edge for Gamers.

As the company explains, it will offer a whole selection of improvements and new functionality: for example, a gaming-oriented homepage, gaming themes, new apps for gamers in the sidebar, and more.

Microsoft Edge will get a gaming mode

Also, one of the main functions will be the actual “gaming mode”, which will minimize the use of resources to achieve maximum performance in games.

Edge for Gamers is currently in early development: the Canary test build already has a toggle, but activating it only adds the Discord and Twitch apps to the sidebar and redirects the user to the Themes section of the Edge Extensions page.
