    This keeps coming up, unless i change Edge being the default browser, as plug in is also in IE and Firefox or i have click Open with Internet Explorer every time i use this game.

    It is because the site in question doesn't understand what Edge is. Edge is a new browser, it is only natural for sites to be confused by it.

    Yeah, i guess it would take time.Just thought was kind of funny, thinking how much say IE was secure, it saying this for Edge.
    It works though with Edge, that i am not saying, just will pop up everytime unless i change default.

    They say get a more modern browser, I say update your database because Edge is more modern

    Well Battlefield is older, but not Origin, true to that. As said no issues, just the message alerted me. To any other gamers that use Origin. Do use Steam, but has no games with plug ins.

    I understand that. I haven't played any battlefield in quite a while. May be time to put it back on

    Had to reinstall Origin and it updated too !! To me Battlefield Bad Company 2 the best one, one gave me the alert was Battlefield 3 Limited Edition, also have Battlefield Hardline which will use the same plug in as BF 3 and is a new game.
    All in all, for any wondering they work fine on Windows 10.

    Sites like these use different methods to detect what browser you're using.

    Mega.nz does the same thing.

    It has very little to do with security and more to do with supported features.

    The sites are hard-coded to detect user agents (there are other methods as well but that's out of the scope of this post)

    Edge provides this user-agent.
    Code:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/42.0.2311.135 Safari/537.36 Edge/12.10240
    The site probably isn't updated to understand edges user agent so it serves up that page, to get you to download and use a browser that it understand. This is so they don't have to spend money on support.

    If you''re wondering why Microsoft's browser has a user agent with things like "Mozilla" "AppleWebKit" "Chrome" and "Safari" I'd suggest you read this: History of the browser user-agent string
