How good or bad is defender to begin with, I've always wondered?

It's good enough for me not to install "free av" like Avast or Avira, I do use scriptblocker to minimize the crap from the internet but still.

Microsoft's new Windows Defender Browser extension will make Chome as good as Edge when it comes to protection from phishing

^and Edge being terrible at just about everything else! I can work with this...not sure if I would need to bother using the Defender extension as I already use Adblock / Ublock origin / Scriptblocker / and a few others....I almost no adds unless I've whitelisted a website on them and even then.

I can see the appeal and idea behind this sure but...why wouldn't these same people use adblock / ublock origin/ etc.

Smartscreen has become really really good lately, so if you are using chrome I say it is worth installing, there are videos on youtube comparing edge and chrome in regards of identifying phising sites and malware domains. Edge is doing great


Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why
