One other oops? Google Drive now calls Edge Insider "unsupported"
Since Edge has migrated to Chromium, Google appears to have a love / hate relationship with its new cousin, Microsoft's Edge Insider. Extra not too long ago, Google's YouTube has blocked Edge Insider customers from its new interface, which it corrected later. It turned out that, though Google engineers have solely admitted a "bug in detection logic", it appears to be a bit greater than that:

A brand new warning seems for Edge Insiders utilizing Google Drive, signaling the browser (for the primary time in months) as unsupported:
A fast examine exhibits that there’s additionally an issue of person agent detection, altering the person agent to Google Chrome take away the warning.
Let's be clear, flagging a browser as unsupported just isn’t so uncommon, however given Google's insidious little historical past of competing with its rivals, this can be a further indication since even they share a standard browser engine, Google just isn’t prepared but. welcome Edge with open arms.
Thanks for the recommendation, Kunal!
