The next major update of Windows 10, Fall Creators Update, will bring great news and improvements to the operating system, just as it did in previous updates.
Now with different focuses and objectives, the news of the new version can already be tested through the Insider Program and within a few weeks can be tested by ordinary users. One focus of the next major update will be Microsoft Edge, which will receive many new features and improvements that will allow it to be much faster in page loading and rendering processes.
Microsoft says it has added new elements to its browser’s constitution that cause progress in loading and rendering. Among the elements that are now supported by the Edge are the “select control”, “canvas element” and “svg elements: Markers, Masks, Patterns”.
Adding to these elements, the Redmond company has added a feature to the Edge that will allow it to use a different channel in the rendering tasks, thus taking advantage of the multi-core CPU tasks.
These changes to the Edge core, inserted in EdgeHTML 16, will bring about noticeable changes in overall browser performance, page loading and scrolling.

The overall performance improvements of the browser are around 43%, very expressive values taking into account the good performance that Microsoft Edge currently has.
