Business users may rely on many different web apps for work and find that they need two browsers -- a modern one that’s secure, fast, and optimized for the latest web standards and a second one to access older web apps that depend on ActiveX or plugin technology.

This extension allows users to switch automatically between Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge in IE mode by enabling IT to set policies that specify which sites should launch in which browser. 

Risk impact

Legacy Browser Support for IE Mode in Edge requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Legacy Browser Support for IE Mode in Edge if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Legacy Browser Support for IE Mode in Edge has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
