2022-06-23 17:01

Microsoft wants to make Edge the go-to browser for gaming, with new features unveiled today, including a new gaming portal and the public release of its Clarity boost upscaling feature when using Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Those using Microsoft's Xbox Cloud Gaming service to stream games to their PCs may have noticed a difference in graphics quality compared to playing the game on the console.

Microsoft also unveiled a new 'Gaming' homepage experience to the Edge new tab page that provides personalized news and content about the games you are interested in.

As part of their announcement, Microsoft is also promoting its Edge Efficiency Mode feature that reduces browser resource utilization when playing games and its Edge gaming section that offers free light-weight games to play in the browser.

The Efficiency mode and free games have already been included in Edge for some time.

Microsoft says the new gaming portal and Clarity boost will be available today in Edge.
