Edge will now be even safer
In addition to being the new default setting, “Basic” is the recommended security setting for Edge. When activated, most sites should work as expected. Users can create exceptions if they have problems with specific sites or doubts about some of them. If people prefer to have the extra security features when browsing any site, they can set the browser to “Strict.” These are the new features of version 104.1293.44 of Microsoft Edge Dev that we had already shown you:
- Improve your security on the web. The improvements of Improve your security on the web at edge://settings/privacy now include basic as a new default option. With this option, Microsoft Edge will apply additional security protection to less visited sites. This preserves the user experience for the most popular sites on the web.
Although the changelog only includes a single change, it is longer compared to the previous two Edge Beta updates. Version 104.0.1293.41, which shipped on August 1, 2022, and Version 104.0.1293.35, which shipped on July 25, 2022, include only bug fixes and performance improvements.
