All the best games coming to Xbox in 2020, 2021, and beyond
/ng/windowscentral-com

All the best and brightest games coming to Xbox consoles.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are here, launched in late 2020 to much praise. One universal question mark hangs over the games line-up, which hasn't exactly been stellar. Still, there are plenty of games worthy of being in our round-up of best Xbox One games and best Xbox Series X, Series S games that launched towards the end of 2020, and hopefully, even more so in 2021 and beyond.

When you look at Microsoft's purchase of Zenimax, and the announced games from both first and third party, the landscape becomes quite impressive, and all the more exciting.

Microsoft Edge's Sleeping Tabs can replace 'The Great Suspender'
/ng/windowscentral-com

A once-great extension is now accused of containing malware.



What you need to know


Microsoft Edge now warns that "The Great Suspender" extension contains malware.
The Great Suspender was recently sold to a new owner.
Microsoft Edge has a similar feature that can be enabled through edge://flags.


I've used "The Great Suspender" extension on Microsoft Edge for quite some time. The extension puts tabs to sleep after a specified amount of time to free up RAM and system resources. But this morning, when catching up on the news from over the weekend, I saw a strange warning sign. Now, Microsoft Edge suspends The Great Suspender and warns that the extension contains malware.

The Great Suspender has been a trusty companion to my browsing for some time and never caused any issues, so I was confused by the warning. It turns out that the extension was sold to an unnamed third party earlier this year and has since been accused of containing malware.
