I have a surface pro 4 with an I7 2.2 G processor and 16 GB memory, since installing the Win10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft Edge has become an absolute dog, to the point it crumbles my entire machine.
Running other (and multiple) applications work just fine, I can run photoshop, visual studio, office apps, chrome\firefox - all concurrently - and the machine runs like a champ. However, if I run Edge (sometimes ONLY Edge) - within minutes I hear the fans start to kick up in the machine, websites start to react slowly (both my interaction with them and the loading of the content), the mouse cursor starts to get choppy, and eventually I need to use task manager to kill the process. It almost feels like theres a memory leak or a loop that starts running in the background.
I've avoided using Edge since the Anny Update thinking future windows updates would perhaps resolve the issue, but just this morning I gave Edge another go, and sure enough after a few minutes the browser is just not nearly as responsive as it used to be.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Any thoughts to a fix? Thanks in advance!
