Windows 10 Edge Browser is Suspended? Weird heading to a post! Isn’t it. Yes, it’s. I’m excited about Spartan now.
As mentioned and discussed in my previous post, Walkthrough of Spartan, Microsoft released their new Internet Browser called Project Spartan for public preview with the latest Windows 10 build 10049!
So, today morning I was migrating all my setting browser settings from Chrome to Spartan and noticed exciting stuff. So I thought of posting about the same!!
Windows 10 Edge Browser is Suspended
No surprise here, isn’t it? Chrome is very famous for this. I’m using the Microsoft Spartan browser now, and Google Chrome is minimized and not active. But still, it’s eating up all the resources. So what is here highlight in this? What is here blog about this? See below.
I felt like Microsoft’s Spartan browser is programmed (I’m no way developer, so that I could be 100% wrong) in a better way. When the Spartan browser Windows is open (not minimized) and active, then the Spartan Services will be running, and resources will be allocated to it. See!
What if I minimize Microsoft’s Spartan browser with Windows 10? Would there be any difference? There is a difference, and I’m very excited to see this change in Spartan.
However, I’m not sure what the impact of this could be if I’m downloading some files from the Internet and I’ve minimized the Spartan browser?
Once you minimize the Spartan browser and it’s not ACTIVE, all the services related to Spartan_Edge.exe will go into a suspended mode !! Isn’t that great? Audio and Video are getting paused when the spartan browser is getting minimized. And people are not liking it !!
What is the impact of this Suspended mode of Spartan Browser? I’ve tested this by downloading a 15 MB free game. So when I minimized the browser, the download also went into pause mode.
And when you maximize the browser, the download will resume. I don’t exactly want to keep the Spartan browser on top whenever I’m doing some downloads directly from the browser.
There could be other options to continue with download even if the browser is minimized. I’ didn’t find anything like that till now.
