    New Edge Feature


    Not sure when this was added (might have been the most recent Edge update), but they now have a "Do not allow this site to open more dialogs" checkbox so those input hijacking websites that claim to be a virus, or from Microsoft can no longer be permanently locked out.

    It works pretty well, though it can take a few seconds for the malicious site to cycle through all its scripts trying to open more dialogs. Eventually you can close the tab.

    I couldn't find this feature in Edge settings. Please advise!

    it's on by default, I don't know if there is any way to enable or disable it.. it's just there, if you're using the latest redstone build.

    That's good to know @Mystere, now maybe I won't have to use Task Manager and kill Edge's process when that happens.

    I'm pretty sure it has always been there (as long as I can remember anyway). Certainly I just took this on 10586 after trying to close a pop-up from some dodgy site or other.

    Guess I look at too many of those huh
