Cache disk is reduced in Microsoft Edge
August 24, 2022
Microsoft Edge is a browser for Windows 10 and this browser is fast, secure, and protects security data from now on it will come with a version that automatically compresses the hard disk cache to reduce and improve disk performance.
What is expected with the Microsoft Edge browser?
It wants to offer a better browser for Windows but also wants to offer it to other platforms and other operating systems.
On many occasions using too many resources of a browser, starts to affect and becomes much slower making the experience not pleasant for users, many people have experienced that they open many windows to search for information, and many times the browser crashes, the pages do not work either forwards or backward and the operating system starts to slow down, in spite of this it is about obtaining a balance of optimization in the system and an optimization in the resources that somehow increases the use of the other resource.
For this many browsers begin to implement the disk cache as it is a RAM memory on a disk that stores data and information obtained from the web to access them later if necessary and the more cache memory you have the more likely that the resource that is requested can be obtained from the disk making it faster than the same resource from the network.
On the other hand, you should carefully manage the cache size for devices with low internal storage and low memory space because an unlimited cache can cause you to run out of space on the device, this causes the browser to consume all available disk space, browsers will consume the available RAM space, for this reason, many browsers adjust the disk cache usage according to the available disk space, this is critical for many operating systems with low internal memory space.
How can cache usage be maximized?
Cache usage can be maximized and minimized, so it is good to take advantage of the understanding to save disk space in the cached storage content, the content of these caches is usually largely compressible, which increases the likelihood of being able to recover the disk.
For this reason, it began with Microsoft Edge 102 in Windows, Microsoft Edge automatically compresses the disk cache on devices that meet different eligibility controls that ensure better understanding without degenerating performance, ensuring an understanding of these caches, achieving better performance and a better user experience when doing work, searching for information, to study or just for fun.
