Requirements and recommendations for Chromium Edge


Chromium Edge (Edge Chromium, Edge 79 and later) is Microsoft's latest browser platform, and it's recommended for all Windows clients using Hoxhunt add-in. It is designed to abandon most of the old and problematic security features introduced by Internet Explorer while working as a modern and secure browser.

In normal situations, no further configuration is needed for optimal Hoxhunt experience.


Frequently asked questions

Does Chromium Edge have ties to Internet Options?

Sadly, yes. While Internet Options were usually accessed via Internet Explorer, they're actually part of Windows 10, not Internet Explorer. Therefore, there are still settings under Internet Options that can affect Chromium Edge's behaviour.

IMPORTANT: As there is no official documentation from Microsoft about the exact dependencies, please take the following information with a grain of salt. Let us know how our assumptions look!
