Microsoft Edge has become the browser of choice for Xbox Game Pass members who wish to play games over the cloud at the highest visual quality possible. This is all thanks to a new feature called Clarity Boost, which the Xbox team has developed exclusively for Microsoft’s Edge browser. While Microsoft didn’t provide any real technical insight behind the feature, it did share a comparison photo that illustrates how much better games such as Gears Tactics can look with Clarity Boost enabled.
