No reason for that. Edge sandbox is good enough and messing with appcontained processes is not a good idea.
The built-in sandbox in Edge may not be enough protection because the sandbox would cover only the Internet activities and does not verify, for example, a malicious executable file that you downloaded from the web which could be contained in a classic sandbox such as Sandboxie.

Generally the browser open in classic sandbox would give adequate protection, by combining the tools in the sandbox of the browser and those of the sandbox that contains it, in this case Sandboxie.

Sure but you can control execution with another program. It doesn't have to be done by edge and it shouldn't be done by edge because not all users know enough like you.
I see your point about sandbox though which is valid. I hope they add it for you to use.

You mean the stuff Smartscreen is supposed to protect you from (As long as the user doesn't disable it)

I think we're derailing this thread's initial topic. If someone wants to keep discussing Edge and sandoxie, it might be better to do it on another thread. Of course, the moderators should know if that's necessary or not.
