    Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see anything about it on the main page (and a search came up empty): Microsoft has released a public preview for the Mac version of their malware protection software Microsoft Defender (formerly Windows Defender under Windows).

    Ummm... yeah.

    I'm sure that's something many Mac users want...

    MicroSlop did release their Edge browser for the Mac. I wouldn't recommend it though

    It's still an early preview, not a full release version.

    Is this meant for consumers, or more of a business security thing?

    I looked at the web site, no price listed (free in beta) except for a link to get a quote for the cost. That sounds like it will be part of a business services contract vs a consumer offering.
