Microsoft is giving Edge users yet another way to procrastinate online by adding a new Games panel to its browser.

After releasing its Chromium-based browser last year, the software giant has continued to update it with new features like Vertical Tabs, Collections, Web Capture and more in an effort to get users to switch from Google Chrome.

Now though, it appears Microsoft is readying a new feature that will help users kill time online as opposed to being more productive while working from home. If browser-based games are your thing, then the company’s new Games panel in Edge could be the perfect way to help pass the time while waiting for renders or downloads to finish.

As reported by Windows Latest and first spotted by Leo Varela, Edge’s new Games panel allows you to play classic games like Solitaire, Mahjong Arcade and others from MSN Games right in your browser.

These games can be accessed from Microsoft’s new “Games” toggle in Edge’s toolbar though you’ll also likely be able to open the new Games panel from the browser’s three-dot menu as well.

Clicking on the game controller icon in the toolbar will bring up a new panel on the right side of the browser in a similar way to how Collections work in Edge. From here, you just need to find a game you want to play and the MSN Games website will launch in your browser. Thankfully though, the Games panel will be disabled by default but you can enable it from the Appearance tab in Edge’s settings.

While Microsoft’s new Games panel is currently being tested out in Edge Canary, it will likely come to the browser when the next stable update for Edge arrives.
