Microsoft may add a new smooth scrolling feature to the Edge web browser very soon. The latest Edge Canary build includes a new option called “Increase screen refresh rate when scrolling”. It is also interesting that Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology will be used to provide this experience.

The description of this new feature is as follows:

“Allows Windows to temporarily increase the refresh rate while scrolling (provided the machine has a VRR panel and a supporting drive). This provides an overall smoother scrolling experience”

Monitors that support Variable Refresh Rate technologies such as AMD Freesync and G-sync can change their refresh rate within a certain range. This new Edge feature will also take advantage of this technology to increase the refresh rate and provide more fluidity when scrolling up or down.

This feature can work similarly to what AMD’s Radeon Chill does. Chill increases the refresh rate when the action is intense and user input is higher, but lowers the Hz when there is little or no user input.
