Microsoft Experiments Super-Duper Secure Mode for Edge

Microsoft’s Edge Vulnerability Research (VR) team is putting a new feature called “Super Duper Secure Mode” (SDSM) through its paces. The goal of Super-Duper Secure Mode is to make Edge more secure without sacrificing performance.

SDSM reduces the attack surface that can be used to hack into Edge’s systems by removing Just-In-Time compilation from the V8 processing pipeline. SDSM also enables “additional security mitigations” to make Edge a more secure browser, in addition to removing the JIT.
