For the holidays, Edge gets an efficiency mode, price tracking, and more.

A new efficiency mode is one of the most notable features. When it detects that your device’s battery is low, the function switches to efficiency mode. When you switch to efficiency mode, your system’s resource utilization, such as CPU and RAM, is lowered, resulting in longer battery life.

Another new Edge feature is one aimed at the forthcoming holiday shopping season. With all of the last-minute holiday discounts that happen this time of year, the Edge browser’s new price-tracking feature tells you if an item you’ve previously viewed has changed in price.

The price-tracking feature works in conjunction with other Edge features such as price comparison between sites and price history. The pricing comparison and history capabilities are now accessible on the Microsoft Edge mobile app for Android, according to Microsoft.

Furthermore, a new function is being tested that allows you to update your password with a single click if it is hacked on a website. The password generator will generate a new strong password for you and save it to that specific website, as well as monitor it in case it is ever compromised again. The feature is now only available on a few sites, but Microsoft has stated that it will be expanded to more sites in the future.

After announcing in May that Internet Explorer would be phased down in June, Microsoft has focused on its Edge browser this year. In comparison to Internet Explorer, Microsoft claims that the Edge browser offers improved compatibility, streamlined productivity, and improved browser security.
