Since moving from EdgeHTML to Chromium, Microsoft Edge has become a very good cross-platform browser, and microsoft is actively contributing to the Chromium community in addition to providing many of Chrome’s great features. Since February, however, the Chrome Web Store has listed the new Edge as an incompatible browser, and Chrome is recommended when trying to install extensions.
Previously, when users accessed the Chrome Web Store through The Edge, they would jump out of the “Google recommends switching to Chrome to use the extension safely.” “And a download link to Chrome is provided below the reminder.
But now this warning has been removed. Now access the Chrome Web Store through The Edge, you’ll receive a message: “You can install an extension from the Chrome Web Store to Microsoft Edge, click ‘Add to Chrome’.” “
In a subsequent statement, Google explained why the alert was triggered. Google said the errors were triggered because Microsoft Edge did not use Google’s Safe Browsing feature, which is primarily used by Chrome’s online app store to discover and defend against malicious extensions.
Microsoft Edge uses SmartScreen instead of Google’s Secure Browsing to block malicious downloads, and SmartScreen goes further than Secure Browsing.
Microsoft Edge is on the verge of becoming the world’s second-largest browser, according to NetMarketShare, and Firefox’s market share has plummeted in the past few weeks. Chrome’s market share jumped from 66.93 per cent to 67.27 per cent in February. Firefox, on the other hand, fell from 8.12% to 7.57%. Microsoft Edge’s market share increased from 7.02% to 7.39%.
