Microsoft Edge gets better security defaults on less popular sites
Quote:Microsoft is rolling out a new update to the Microsoft Edge Stable Channel over the coming days to improve the web browser's security defaults when visiting less popular websites.

Starting with version 104.0.1293.47, Edge will toggle on the "Basic" level of security when the "Enhance your security on the web" optional browsing mode is enabled in settings.

When this mode is toggled on, it provides an additional layer of protection against memory-related vulnerabilities by disabling just-in-time (JIT) JavaScript compilation and enabling extra OS protections when browsing the web and unfamiliar sites.

After updating to the latest stable version, the "Basic" level will be enabled by default to only apply mitigations to sites you visit less frequently.

"Improvements to Enhance your security on the web in edge://settings/privacy now include Basic as the new default option," Microsoft explains.

"With this option, Microsoft Edge will apply added security protection to the less visited sites. This feature preserves the user experience for the most popular sites on the web."
