It can be deactivated via group policy. Almost 1200 pages classified as incompatible by Microsoft are currently affected.

Microsoft announced an important change for its legacy browser, Internet Explorer. With the release of Edge 87 next month, certain websites will automatically only be opened in Microsoft's new browser , even if the URL of the page is entered in Internet Explorer or Internet Explorer is the default browser and the user clicks on a link.

Microsoft Edge: Developer preview now with selective translation of websites

 Microsoft Edge: Developer preview now with selective translation of websites © Provided by Dr. Windows Microsoft Edge Developer Preview As every week there is a new developer preview of Microsoft Edge. Version 87.0.658.0 brings translation news. You can now mark individual text elements on a website and then have them translated by right-clicking. The highlight: The translation is not displayed in the sidebar or outside the browser window, but directly on the page. To illustrate this, I have had the section with the new functions in the Changelog compiled.

This function has been tested in Edge 84 since summer. With the update to Edge 87, however, the forced forwarding from Internet Explorer to Edge is to be activated for all users.

Currently affected are 1156 websites that Microsoft classifies as incompatible with Internet Explorer. The list includes sites like Youtube, Instagram,

, Twitter, , Yahoo Mail, StackOverflow, VK, ESPN and GoDaddy.

Forwarding is made possible by a new DLL file that Microsoft has been storing in the Edge installation directory since the summer. The "ie_to_edge_bho.dll" is a so-called Browser Helper Object (BHO) that is loaded as a plug-in by Internet Explorer. Again, a registry entry is responsible for this.

The DLL file contains the list of websites that Microsoft says are incompatible. Internet Explorer compares all URLs to be opened with this list and automatically redirects users to Microsoft Edge when they hit it to display the page in question. In Internet Explorer, in turn, an appears informing about the forwarding and the reasons.

, however, gives Microsoft a backdoor for companies that rely on Internet Explorer. According to an

support article , the automatic forwarding can be switched off by group policy. Of course, it also does not work on systems on which the new Microsoft browser Edge is not installed. Internet Explorer can currently still be used there without restriction.

In the coming months, further

already announced restrictions for Internet Explorer will come into force. The Teams video conference service can only be used in Internet Explorer until November 30th. In August 2021, support for Microsoft 365 in Internet Explorer 11 will also expire. In general, however, Microsoft supports the browser for as long as the operating system with which it was delivered. WEBINAR

Every second counts when it comes to endpoint protection: Why disarming in real time is crucial Carsten Maceus, Systems Engineer at Fortinet, explains in this webinar what a modern IT security architecture should look like in companies. He illustrates this using the example of a football stadium where Bengalos, speedsters, stewards and spectators act. Exciting.
