Microsoft has confirmed that when its Edge browser moves over to the Chromium rendering engine, which is used by its chief competitor Chrome, users will be able to install Google Chrome extensions.The extensions are small add-ons for Chrome that bring extra features, such as adblocking, VPN, password management and much more. Edge did have its own extensions, but the selection was very limited compared to Chrome’s huge – and constantly growing – collection.By supporting Chrome extensions in a future Chromium-based version of Edge, Microsoft will be addressing one of the biggest handicaps its web browser has when competing against Chrome.A vicious circle had emerged where, due to Chrome’s popularity, developers were concentrating on creating extensions for Chrome and neglecting Edge. That encouraged people to switch to Chrome, due to its additional functionality.A future version of Edge able to make use of Chrome extensions could encourage people to stick with … [Read more...] about Microsoft confirms Edge will be able to use Google Chrome Extensions

Google has been warning people about the dangers of unencrypted websites for years. But now the company is taking more concrete steps by declaring all HTTP sites as “not secure” starting in July 2018. Google recently announced that the Chrome browser would soon start marking all HTTP sites as “not secure.” These are the websites that don't have a “secure” message or an icon of a green padlock on the address bar.
