Chromium Microsoft Edge supports insecure content blocking feature
Like most other browsers on the market, Chromium-based Microsoft Edge comes with rules that provide configuration permissions for every website we visit. Of course, for added convenience, we can also configure the same rules for all pages to ensure that the website’s access to files, webcam, microphone or other resources is handled properly. Recently, Microsoft added new permissions to the latest Canary release to further enhance the security we get when browsing the web. This feature is called “Insecure Content Blocking, ” which essentially prevents users from accessing content stored on websites that are considered insecure by Microsoft Edge. Needless to say, this feature helps improve online security for users.
