Title: SpywareBlaster Updates Discussion
Post by: 2harts4ever on October 29, 2016, 09:42:56 PM
Hi,


When I started using Windows 10 with the Edge Browser several months ago I stopped using Spyware Blaster after using it for years.


While visiting the forum today I noted that in 2013 winchester73 told what Browsers could use Spyware Blaster and among those listed was Internet Explorer (and browsers that use the IE engine).


So, now I am curious, even though I use Edge as my main browser  and my wife utilizes Firefox should I still be using Spyware Blaster?


Thanks and regards,
2harts4ever

No, at this point, SpywareBlaster does not support Microsoft Edge.  Microsoft Edge doesn't use the IE engine and doesn't use ActiveX control.  As more extensions are added to Edge, it is possible that SpywareBlaster will support Edge.

Good morning hayc59 and Corrine,


I appreciate both of you taking the time to respond.  It is good to see familiar names from the past.


The reason I asked is because I use Edge and my wife uses Firefox (both on the same computer ... but not at the same time).


Thanks and regards,
