I'm using the extension Skip Redirect in Firefox and I refuse to reinstall Edge at the moment. Would be an interesting experiment if Skip Redirect was able to bypass. Looks like Microsoft is crazy-obsessed with this browser thing so hopefully Sir Newton's Law holds true here: for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction.
