Last week,media reported on how Google showed a warning to Microsoft Edge users to switch to Google Chrome using the browser extension “more securely.” The company later explained that the message was displayed because Edge did not support secure browsing and could not remotely detect and remove malicious extensions. But today, Microsoft Edge developer Eric Lawrence said on Twitter — you don’t really have to worry about Google’s warnings.
Eric Lawrence confirmed in a tweet that the Microsoft Edge browser will poll every 2 to 4 hours to check for extensions and query for threat updates every 30 minutes.
For understanding purposes, he also shared a screenshot of Fiddler’s web debugging to show how the program actually works.
Google and Microsoft have long competed in many areas, either explicitly or implicitly. In order to compete for users, taking security to attack opponents is not the only time.
While Microsoft pushes the pre-installed Edge browser in the Windows 10 operating system, Google has chosen to go back and forth in some way.
