Google has started displaying a warning to people using Microsofts new Edge browser while accessing Chrome web store.

Recently, the search engine giant has added to the Chrome web store which detects when a user is installing extensions to Microsoft Edge, 9To5Google reported on Friday.

The extension simply explains that Google “recommends” using Chrome instead of Edge to use extensions “securely”.

The message does not appear when using other Chromium-based browsers.

As per the report, the warning does not affect the ability to install Chrome extensions on Microsoft Edge, rather it just warns users against the practice.

According to NetMarketShare, Chrome has a 67 per cent share of the browser market, while Edge has just under 6 per cent.

  1. That is because “Edge”, is a chrome product now. Even though it is owned by Microsoft, it is nothing more than the chrome browser with a custom skin and settings. (But, because chrome/google, is not producing it, it can’t protect it from malicious intent from the apps/plugins.)
