    Microsoft has released the "Windows Defender Browser Protection" for Chrome Browser.

    "Adds anti-phishing protection to Google's browser"

    Microsoft justifies the new plugin with reference to a 2017 report that claims that the company's Edge browser blocked 99 percent of phishing attempts, compared to 87 percent by Chrome and 70 percent in Firefox. The plugin brings Edge's protection to Chrome, so if the theory holds, it should bump the browser up to 99 percent, too.
