Thread: Edge mistaken as Chrome?

    Edge mistaken as Chrome?

    I've gotten a warning message a couple of times saying that the board software detected that I am using the Chrome browser. Each time it happened, I was using Edge, the new browser from Microsoft.

    I thought I'd let you know in case there is a bug in the detection software.

    Cheers...

    I just got that message again. Here it is:

    NOTICE:We have detected you are using Chrome web browser. If the space bar does not work when entering text below press the Enter key first and the space bar should work again.
    I am using Edge, not Chrome.

    EDGE IS chrome in disguise.

    Correct. Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium. So the warning will show.

    If that's true, then the error message should say so or they should get better software that can detect "chrome in disguise".

    Oh wow, I did not know that! Learned something new today. Also, based on looking around the internetz, I didn't realise at all the Chrome is open-source.
