Chromium Edge is the advanced generation browser by Microsoft. It was launched in 2018 and Windows users are really impressed by it. This browser is not completed yet. The Microsoft developers are still working on it. Hopefully, soon we will get the full-fledged Chromium Edge experience. The best thing about the chromium edge is the security measures that Microsoft adopted. Especially the most in the discussion feature was insecure content blocking.
This is the new addition to Microsoft Chromium features. It prohibits the side who are not secured by HTTPs. Actually such sites are insecure and they are not safe to access. So chromium stops you from opening such websites and scammers. It is an essential type of site permission. Insecure content blocking not just only blocks the website even there is some internal website insecurity, chromium edge will also stop them potentially.
Remember that this feature is included only in the latest Canary Edge Version only. Users can get download the chromium latest version from the Canary Channel. Or, you can visit the page MS Edge Insider Channels.
