We have been literally bombarded by the endless series of news associated with the new Windows 10. Expect this, here comes that. It is more than obvious that grandpa Microsoft wants to impress us in each and any way possible. Everything and anything will be different and improved.
What about the cyber security? Grandpa Microsoft has no other choice than to cover all the fields, including this one among others with the shiny new features. This is how, its browsing pride and joy called the Edge is going to come with the fully functional Password Manager.
We know and completely understand that you may have quite a few prejudices about the password helpers. Why? It can be easily explained with the golden rule, do not put all of your eggs in one basket. On the other side, managing and memorizing all those passwords is not a pleasant thing.
For what is worth, this password manager will walk only on the browsing Edge. All passwords required for the numerous websites will be saved and managed accordingly. We only hope that grandpa Microsoft has prepared itself properly for the single basket worst case scenario.
We are definitely exaggerating with our egde-this-and-that metaphors, aren’t we? Yet, we just cannot help ourselves. Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer called the Spartan Project, and now officially the Edge is such an easy target for word games. However, grandpa Microsoft is not in the game mood.
Why? It wants to prove so many things to all of us with the new Windows 10. The MS Edge is one of them. We all know what is going to be the very first target of the merciless criticism in this field, don’t we? What about the security features of the new MS Edge? How strong it really is?
Well, grandpa Microsoft offers us a bug bounty challenge. If you want to earn $11,000, then all you have to do is to find a security flaw in the Edge. Do we have to warn you that it is not going to be an easy task? Microsoft has done its really best for the Edge to shine like a true cyber-star.
This way or another, sooner or later, some busy little bee will take this sweet honey prize. The questions is, though, how many times will grandpa Microsoft have to pay for this bug bounty? Either way, it is better to pay now than later, in the aftermath of a serious cyber attack. The clock is ticking. Your money is waiting.
We know it already. We know it all too well. Grandpa Microsoft throws all it has at shiny and new Windows 10. There is a paradise at the end of the Windows 10 rainbow, waiting for all of us. You can even play Candy Crush Saga once you get there. However, grandpa Microsoft is an extremely experienced cyber-road warrior.
It knows that all of our expectations and demands can come and go, easily, but one is to stay and play. The cyber security will patiently wait for its audience turn. Perhaps, this is the very reason grandpa Microsoft had promised us that the new Internet Explorer (aka Edge (aka Spartan)), will solve all of our security troubles and doubts.
We should not walk on the edge of cyber security with the Edge itself. Never again. Should we buy it, both Microsoft’s claim and product itself? Should we try it? We sure hope that the busy little bees in Microsoft do not treat Windows 10 promotion as an election year.
Otherwise, Windows 10 can easily end up as an unsuccessful political experiment where the overwhelming disappointment of its users ruined the party. Therefore, MS Edge has to be a true work of art in terms of cyber security, or else… Grandpa Microsoft you know the consequences, don’t you?
