Microsoft hopes to make Edge the most secure browser and reports the browser contains significantly less vulnerabilities than Chrome and Firefox on Windows. To make the browser even more secure the company will add a new security measure that should provide “unprecedented protection”.

Alot of koolaid there… :Z

To make the browser even more secure the company will add a new security measure that should provide “unprecedented protection”.
Add how about improve the browser itself to be more secured?

it also reports that there are no known zero-day attacks on Edge.
Yeah and I got a nice piece of real estate in Russia for you.

To also protect against these attacks, Microsoft introduced Windows Defender Application Guard for Windows 10 Enterprise earlier this week. This measure, that should provide “unprecedented protection” uses container technology to run Edge when an user visits an unknown or untrusted website.
If Windows O/S is any proof then your protection is about malware itself.

Microsoft explains, “Application Guard creates a new instance of Windows at the hardware layer, with an entirely separate copy of the kernel and the minimum Windows Platform Services required to run Microsoft Edge. The underlying hardware enforces that this separate copy of Windows has no access to the user’s normal operating environment.”
Got a better Solution how about make user “Limited User” that would vastly improve user protection from doing dumb clicks on malware ads and infecting all the networks. With Limited user they can’t install or run .exe apps without the Admin permission.

The separate copy made by Application Guard has no access to local storage, installed applications, network endpoints, credentials and other resources that might be of interest to an attacker. When the user closes Edge, the copy made by Application Guard is automatically removed.
Yeah I believe that…

Even when an attacker successfully performs an attack against Edge, there is no threat, because he is unable to break out the container, according Microsoft. And because the container is removed when the user closes Edge, there is no permanent access to the system.
False worship again-this has never proven to work.

Application Guard will first become available to Insiders the coming months, later it should become available on a larger scale.
Great while you at it make sure to keep the backdoors open to the malware so that when you load the Guard it will be clueless to do anything worth while. Do they think malware will say ok will wait and then attack.

not for me I am not and will not used edge do not trust Microsoft.

it also reports that there are no known zero-day attacks on Edge

That’s pretty easy to explain, hackers go after the popular browsers so they can affect more users. They don’t bother with the less popular stuff, same with operating systems. Last time I looked Edge is supposed to have about 5% of the desktop browser share.

So, in other words, Edge is sandboxed. There are ways of sandboxing other apps, you know. Just by using your favorite search engine, you can find plenty of ways to sandbox Firefox or Chrome. I just searched for a way to do so on Ubuntu, and found mbox. It only took a few seconds to find. That said, I haven’t tried it yet, so I have no idea if it’s any good, but it’s there.
