Speed up Edge by Disabling Flash

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Edge definitely runs relatively slow when compared to other browsers … but I’m not sure if disabling Flash is really a practical answer to that problem.

One of the annoyances of Microsoft Edge that I experience whenever I use the web browser is that it lags at times. This is noticeable for instance when websites are loaded from external sources but also at other occasions. When a website loads for instance, it lags until all content is loaded.

One of the issues with most touch-enabled devices on the market today is that they have a visible input lag when you work with them. According to research Microsoft conducted, the lag’s about 100ms on modern touchscreen devices, with some devices having less lag, and some even more than that. The effect is less visible on devices with smaller screens, handhelds or smartphones for example, and more visible on tablets and other larger touch-enabled devices.
