It seems that visiting internet sites will be easier from Xbox. While controversy sparked against Xbox due to the surprising announcements of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III covering the entire user interface, Microsoft could make internet browsing on the console much faster thanks to a new and appealing feature.
Using Edge on Xbox will be a faster experience
According to a report by Tom Warren, a journalist from The Verge, Microsoft could significantly enhance the internet browsing experience on their Xbox consoles with the implementation of a new feature in the Edge browser found on them. Specifically, it's an option to block embedded content on websites, which negatively affects performance during browsing. As you know, this type of content comes from external sources and third parties, displaying related information on the screen, causing slowdowns and longer loading times.
At this moment, the feature to block embedded content while browsing on Edge from Xbox is in the Alpha testing phase, so it's only available to a limited number of users who are part of the Xbox Insider program. This means that we might be far from its official release, as a feedback and analysis phase will follow from here.
In related information, this weekend saw the statements of Phil Spencer, the CEO of Microsoft Gaming, who stated that any device capable of running Game Pass is an Xbox. Similarly, he mentioned that now that they own Activision Blizzard and have acquired several studios and publishers, they can bring more games to more platforms, so PlayStation and Nintendo users can also be considered members of the Xbox community.
