Microsoft’s new resident browser has improved greatly during its short life. Currently, Microsoft Edge rests on its laurels as one of the top three best browsers in the world. Edge is fast and capable, and now with Super Duper Secure Mode, it’s a veritable crypt as well.
Enabling Super Duper Secure Mode on Microsoft Edge
The step is to download the browser that makes Super Duper Secure Mode possible; Microsoft Edge. Edge comes standard on Windows 10 and 11 and is easy to download and install on macOS and Linux-based systems. Head over to Microsoft’s website and choose the Microsoft Edge Executable compatible with your OS architecture. You’ll need the latest version of Edge for this feature to work; this is v.96.0.1054.29 0r later.
Everything from here on out will be done on Edge itself. Edge is incredibly capable as far as browsers go and narrowly beat out Google Chrome on speed tests. Edge is also going through a slight resurgence in user popularity. While Chrome still sits proudly at the top of the list, more and more people are choosing Edge over their native browsers.
Open Edge Settings
At the top right-hand side of the Edge toolbar, you’ll see three dots. You’ll see an expandable list of options. From here, you need to head to ‘Settings.’
You’ll see a ‘Privacy, Search, and Services’ tab in the Settings menu. Open this tab and scroll down to the ‘Security’ header. Now you should see an option to toggle ‘Security Mitigations for a More Secure Browser Experience. Turn this on. You have now successfully activated Super Duper Secure Mode.

A sign of security integration standards to come
The expectation created by features like Edge’s Super Duper Secure Mode is that slowly but surely, reliance on the JIT compiler will lessen and that more browsers will start disabling it by default in the next few years as Microsoft Edge has done.
