Because of a chance encounter,  a netizen from China was using a custom security defense software when he discovered that QQ Browser, a software developed by the Chinese software giant, was stealing users' privacy.
Later, by another netizen's reverse engineering analysis , QQ browser did not just openly steal user data from chrome browser, but from all chromium kernel browsers.
I'm posting this because I used to be an edge browser user, but I'm also an affected chrome user now.
I would like to remind all developers of this.
