Microsoft recently announced that the new operating system Windows 10 May 2020 Update will bring many improvements to memory and specifically to the segment heap memory.
What does this mean; Improvements to segment heap memory can significantly reduce the amount of memory used by browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.
Needless to say, Microsoft Edge is the first browser to benefit from these changes, and the company claims that memory usage improvements reach 27% with Windows 10 May 2020 Update.
Question: Is the change in the segment heap memory shortly after the release of Chrome-based Edge released?
Another question: Why didn't Microsoft deal with segment heap memory when its default browser was the old Edge or IE?
Of course, Google will follow suit to take advantage of the improvements to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update and update the Chrome browser for better performance in the amount of memory it uses.
A Chromium technician in fact he explains that this change could help Chrome reduce "hundreds of MB" of memory usage.
All these improvements will only be possible on devices running the new Windows 10 Update (May 2020 Update).
