Edge fans be like "well, it's not like Microsoft IS going to show someone visited URLs, so IT IS PRIVATE".Web Privacy? How does this work when all your urls are sent to Microsoft ?
Also from my own experience with the Edge browser it seems to have a pre-configured DNS that it uses and it bypasses system DNS settings.
You can't have security without privacy. You shouldn't trade your privacy for security. Edge shouldn't be called privacy browser because there's nothing private about it. Edge is as private as is CM Browser by Clean Master.It does not bypass the DNS enforced by my router, which is adopted by the system (haven’t tested my system independently since the router overrides it anyway). But I don’t think it has a hard coded DNS, what did you see that makes it seem like it is? Also, if you turn off smart screen then urls don’t go plaintext to M$. Problem solved. Though they have really good web filtering because of this. As with anything privacy/security it’s a trade off.
