Microsoft Edge is the best browser for blocking phishing websites

Microsoft is not the only tech company to draw on customer data for personalized advertising. However, as we said it is in beta.

For Windows platform, it is still a great option, and for Android and iOS it brings incredible features like Syncing Bookmarks, history, etc. and in overall it gives continuous experience as it also brings the page where you left on PC or a smartphone. However, you need a Microsoft account used for logging in on your Android and Windows 10.

Although collection of data is a generally unpopular practice from a consumer standpoint, Microsoft does have valid uses and benefits from collecting extensive metadata. The company does not clearly inform users that it continuously collects personal data about the usage of apps and web surfing behaviour through its web browser Edge, when the default settings are used. She also goes on to state that just as Microsoft has worked with French and Swiss data protection agencies to tweak its Windows 10 telemetry settings to comply with local ordinances, it is also willing to work with the Dutch DPA.

The main interface of the service is relatively clean as far as search engines which aren't Google are concerned, though scrolling down on it will still present you with "Top Stories" which can be turned off in the "Home page" section of the app's Settings menu, with the change itself going live the moment you open a new tab. Due to Microsoft's approach users lack control of their data.

Vice-Chairman of the Dutch DPA, Wilbert Tomesen, called on Microsoft to give users the "fair opportunity" to decide whether they want their data collected. For iOS, it uses Safari's own engine, and for Android, it uses Chrome's Blink Engine.

Mensa offers to host IQ test between Trump and Tillerson
Trump on Saturday denied a frayed relationship with Tillerson but said he sometimes wishes Tillerson would be "tougher". "They're working hand in hand to move the president's agenda forward".

As operating systems and browsers become more and more secure malicious actors are finding it increasingly more worthwhile targeting the unchanging weak link in the chain, the user, using techniques such as phishing and spear phishing to trick users into willingly giving up their important data and credentials.

The app is in preview, which means that more features are on the way.

The main selling point of Microsoft Edge is its self-explanatory "Continue on PC" feature which requires you to have the Windows 10 Fall Creators update installed on your computer.

The company's default browser for Windows 10 is an uncluttered Internet Explorer replacement. The Edge is now moving out from the home and making its place in Android and iOS.
