    Serious answer:

    The Edge sits between the browser and your origin server

    Edge is often like a CDN (like Cloudflare, AWS, Akamai, Fastly)

    When browser requests your site - The Edge server responds first - ideally 90% of the requests can restult in a cached response where no traffic is even sent to your origin server, allowing you to have a very low server load despite millions of requests

    ”Edge computing” or ”Edge workers” would mean something unique like a username might be injected into a cached response - without needing to call your origin server
