Seeing a lock icon and knowing a site uses HTTPS is not really a guarantee the site is not trying to scam you these days. Microsoft is working on making the information in the site information pop-up more useful by adding an option to show actual information from a site derived from Wikipedia.
A toggle is currently available for this in Edge Dev and Edge Canary as a controlled roll-out.
The information adds part of the Wikipedia entry to the site information pop-up.
It also includes links to the site’s social pages.
Microsoft is also looking to add an “underside panel” which will show site relevant information in a special pane.
That is being tested in Edge Canary.
The site information move is interesting, but I suspect there is room for controversy if a website does not agree with its description on Wikipedia.
What do our readers think of this move? Let us know below.
