Risk impact

Microsoft Bing Quick Search 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 Microsoft Bing Quick Search 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

Microsoft Bing Quick Search 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.

The idea is very solid, the implementation just needs tweaking. I find the appearance of the "Web search/Copy" etc menu to be too intrusive on the rest of the sentence that follows. Why not have it pop up directly above the highlighted word or phrase instead? To see what I mean, have a look how it is done in Opera browser. If you placed it above, there should be ample room for the 'Define' option to appear natively too, dispensing with the need to click the 3 dots first. ---- It appears to have stopped working?
