In terms of Edge (Chromium), SpywareBlaster offers two types of protection:

1) Cookies (prevents ads/tracking).   You can find these populated in EDGE under
    SETTINGS / Site Permissions / Cookies and Site Data > Block.
2) [Java] Scripts (prevents malicious, potentially unwanted, and/or ad / tracking / annoying scripts.   You can find these populated in EDGE under
    SETTINGS / Site Permissions / JavaScript > Block.

As best as I can tell, these are independent of SpywareBlaster's Restricted Sites list... I believe that list applies only to Internet Explorer.   I have posted at Wilder's hoping to obtain clarification/confirmation from JavaCool.

Just noticed that in Edge, implementation of SpywareBlaster's protection results in the message "Your browser is managed by your organization".
Unfortunately, even upon disabling protection, the message remains, as the two policy names, CookiesBlockedForUrls and JavaScriptBlockedForUrls are still "there", albeit with NO "policy values".
I've reported this in the SpywareBlaster Forum:   https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/spywareblaster-6-0-released-microsoft-edge-brave-vivaldi-windows-10-and-more.431613/page-2#post-2942138   
See attached screenshots.

Interesting.  For this update, I had to do a separate set up for Edge after enabling all protection.  And then afterward, had to enable all protection again.   

 The set up screen offered 24 recommended  items to block, cookies and scripts.
