Summary

This extension makes Microsoft Edge "spoof" Google Chrome when using Google Search. Changing the User-Agent header is no longer sufficient - this extension updates 4 headers.

Benefits: Google no longer nags you to install Chrome, and it seems to reduce / stop the annoying CAPCHA page. It seems Google may be targeting Edge users with this annoyance... While using non-Chrome browsers to search on Google I was regularly encountering an alarming page claiming suspicious activity from my IP address with a CAPTCHA. Using Chrome, it didn't happen.

Since Edge is Chrome, impersonating Chrome isn't going to break anything... but it does reduce the CAPCHAs.

This extension is open source: Check it out on GitHub: https://github.com/StandBackLabs/Edge2Chrome
