Turning off Microsoft Edge - Continue running background apps when closed

Microsoft today (Jan 15, 2020) launched its new Edge browser based on Google's Chromium open source project. You can download Chromium Edge GA now for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and macOS directly from in more than 90 languages. 

One setting you may miss, but has performance implications is found in the System option (edge://settings/system).

Continue running background apps when Microsoft Edge is closed

Some apps and extension can “ask” the browser to stay awake so that they can continue to function; e.g., to deliver notifications of new e-mail messages, or keep a chat alive.

For example, Facebook can continue to run in the background and also show notifications.

Swipe left to disable.
