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.
