Secret mode found in Edge browser

Microsoft Edge has added maximum security mode

Microsoft has added several hidden features to the Edge browser. This is reported by the TechRadar edition, whose journalists discovered new settings in Microsoft's proprietary browser.

According to the authors of the material, in the Edge assembly 96.0.1054.29 there are two modes of the program. The first configuration is balanced. While working in this mode, the browser remembers which sites the user visits most often, and allows access to them – as a rule, regardless of restrictions.

The second mode called “Strict” controls all sites, which the user is visiting. In this case, the browser draws attention to websites with a low level of protection and warns the user about this. This maximum protection mode also includes blocking attacks via JavaScript Just in Time Engine (JIT), flow control technology and hardware protection against exploits from Intel.

The new mode can be activated on the “Privacy” tab in the program settings.

According to Microsoft, Maximum Security is the best option for using Edge on the Internet. However, in this case, system performance may decrease.

Earlier it became known that Microsoft prohibited opening system links in browsers other than Edge. Links that open only through Edge include content in the Settings, News, Widgets sections.
