Microsoft Edge tweaks its sleeping tabs for better performance

Microsoft's newest spin on the feature means tabs will go to sleep more often.

Power users have abused browser tabs ever since browser tabs became a thing. But modern browsers eat memory like some kind of Japanese folkloric demon, and thus need some way of semi-automatically managing a user's tendency to open tabs and leave them open. Such is the case with the latest version of Microsoft's Edge browser, now passing version 100. The newest implementation of sleeping tabs saves even more memory and performance.
