It would be nice to have more accurate tracking protection. I can't download extensions on my school laptop, so I rely completely on Microsoft's tracking protection, and I've noticed in the edge task manager that some trackers are running in the background.
Also, in Firefox, there are 'containers' that tabs run in that keep things you do in them separate from your other activity. Facebook is run in one and it keeps all trackers from Facebook from tracking your normal activity. I would like Edge to have something similar, so that Facebook and Google will be unable to track your activity without you actively using their service.
Hi, The "Strict" mode is not accurate or other Tracking prevention modes? btw have you tried downloading an extension on another computer and then importing it to your school laptop offline? (if they are only blocking downloads) or are they blocking extension installations as well?
So you can for example download ublock origin or another adblocker of your choice on another computer, then export its files, copy them to a flash drive, Email them to your school computer etc and then import it offline to your school laptop Edge browser, they won't be able to block that because you're not download anything. you can do this once every 1 or 2 month to keep your extension up to date :)
