We are excited to bring sharper images with improved contrast and lighting to you in Microsoft   Edge. When Image Enhancement is turned on, Microsoft Edge encrypts and sends images to Microsoft servers to perform image enhancement. No user identifiers are included in the requests sent to this service, and the images are cached for up to 30 days to improve performance. Image enhancement in Edge is powered by machine learning models that are used today in Bing Maps to improve satellite imagery.

Here’s some before and afters:

The enhancement effect is subtle for most images, and it is maximized on blurry images and the ones that have compression artifacts:
