Microsoft offers Super Duper Security to its Edge browser

Microsoft has announced that it is bolstering its Edge Browser with a Super Duper Security mode that minimizes the chances of browser based cyber attacks. And news is out that the beta version that was unveiled late last year will be rolled out to all users from February this year.

However, some users who opted for the feature say that they are observing some performance/speed related issues to a certain extent and hope that the issue will be addressed shortly with a fix.

Additionally, Edge browser will also get latest security protections such as Control Flow Enforcement Technology (CET) and Arbitrary Code Guard (ACG) that help generate dynamic codes and implement a shadow stack to secure flowing addresses.

Furthermore, the Windows OS giant is also building a WASM Interpreter dubbed DrumBrake that can eliminate the need for writable and executable pages into the memory with machine instructions.

Coming to the benefits gained from Edge, it is a lightweight browser that hogs less RAM and is a performance oriented browser- just behind Google Chrome. Moreover, Edge applies coupons on an automated note on compatible websites and offers an extension to bag great online deals. Its work efficiency is excellent and goes light on the battery consumption. Usage of multiple tabs is possible on Edge and webpages can be saved with the inbuilt ‘Collections’ tool.

Note- Google Chrome tops the list of browsers used worldwide and as per the latest statistics released by web analytics firm StatCounter. Safari occupies the 2nd place with Edge following it at the 3rd place, followed by Mozilla Firefox at the fourth position.
