Microsoft has released some new features in its Edge browser which are developed for those who love to play games directly in the browser.
Among other things, a kind of game center has been created in the browser where users can find information about various games. Edge also got a new setting that Microsoft calls “Efficiency Mode” that prevents the browser from taking up too much computing power when the user is playing on their PC. Microsoft writes about the new setting:
Microsoft Edge helps improve gaming performance on Windows 10 and 11 to help keep games running fast and smooth by automatically reducing browser resource usage when you start a PC game. With this feature, you don’t need to close the browser to play and reopen it when you’re done. Once you close the game, Microsoft Edge will exit efficiency mode and take you right back to where you left off. “
Perhaps the most interesting update in Edge is what Microsoft calls Clarity Boost, a feature that was first revealed last fall. With the help of Clarity Boost, games played via the Xbox Cloud Gaming will be better and sharper in Edge compared to the competing browser according to Microsoft.
New Edge updates are available to browser players now. Below is a short clip of what the Edge gaming hub looks like in the browser.

Browser gets Clarity Boost
Microsoft continues to improve the experience when streaming games through Xbox Cloud Gaming and now they are streamed via the improved Edge browser. Microsoft Edge has got some new flaws in the form of Clarity Boost, which will raise the visual quality a notch. Clarity Boost is currently being tested in Edge beta, which can be downloaded here. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the Edge trial, all you have to do is go to Xbox.com/Play, sign in, and start any game. Then click on the three dots icon and select Enable Clarity Boost. Then you get an unparalleled visual experience. Clarity Boost will be released to the regular Edge early next year.
