Apr 30, 2020 Since i've updated edge to Chromium Edge, it won't work for me. I've already changed PlayReady DRM for Windows 10 to 'enabled' but won't work also. The HEVC Codec is already installed and i can see 4k with the old Edge browser.
- This time around, Microsoft’s new Edge browser is built on the open-sourced browser project Chromium and that is a very good thing. If you’re unfamiliar, Chromium is a project to bring web.
- Feb 21, 2020 Microsoft is no stranger to the benefits of platform domination, and it has tried to turn that to its advantage when it comes to Edge. But Google has the world’s most popular browser—its.
- And on January 15, 2020, a stable version of the Edge browser based on Chromium was released. Ever since that day, Edge has become my default browser to see how it performs on day-to-day usage. The last time I tested and compared Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox was in October 2020 and now I am testing again in January 2021.
The new Microsoft Edge browser is based on Chromium, the same engine that powers Google Chrome, so it’s capable of running any extension published in the Chrome Web Store.
But at the same time, Microsoft also maintains its own add-on stores where the company says it’s only publishing recommended extensions that have been previously verified and validated for its browser.
Only that just like it happens in the case of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge extensions are prone to various infections that could end up with users being exposed.
And this is what happened recently when malicious code was discovered in a clone of the more famous Dark Reader extension.
Called “Dark Theme for Edge,” the knockoff came with code hidden in a PNG file which powered the downloading and execution of other malicious code from a C&C server. When the attack was complete, the extension was capable of collecting data from webpages using fake forms and then upload it to a server controller by the attacker, the dev of Dark Reader explains.

Microsoft already removed the extension
Similar clones were also discovered in the extension stores maintained by Google and Mozilla, and the developer says he actually reached out to both companies in April. But Microsoft has only recently been targeted, so a similar message was sent to the software giant too.
The good news is that Microsoft responded quickly and removed the malicious extension from its store. Additionally, the company has also uninstalled the extension from devices where it was previously deployed in an attempt to protect these computers, so users will now see a warning that “this extension contains malware.”
At the time of writing, the malicious Dark Reader clones have also been banned from the Google Chrome Web Store and Mozilla add-on store.
