Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge

Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are very different browsers. They have their advantages, but they also have their disadvantages. Google Chrome has a more diverse plugin system and an interface similar to most other browsers, making it easy to use. Microsoft Edge, on the other hand, is designed for Windows 10. While this makes it easier for you to use it on your device, it also means that you can’t easily install plugins or change the interface with extensions.
Since version 38 of Microsoft Edge was released in December 2017, security patches have been pushed out more often than before. So if your device is up-to-date with the latest patches from Microsoft, there should be no problems updating your browser to its newest version. If you find yourself running into issues while using this browser on Android devices, contact Microsoft support to get help troubleshooting your issue.

To sum up, it's not too late to get patched up and make sure you're safe from this devastating vulnerability!
