Microsoft Edge Is Trying To Warn People Off Firefox And Chrome

It reads, "You already have Microsoft Edge - the safer, faster browser for Windows 10". Google pushes Chrome on all of its properties when users use different browsers to connect to them, and Microsoft too displayed notifications on the Windows 10 platform to users who used other browsers that Edge was more secure or power friendly.

A test feature run by Microsoft that had warned Windows 10 Insiders against installing Chrome and Firefox, will not be part of the actual update slated for October, the media reported. The "Windows 10 October 2018 update" is expected to bring a bunch of new features, for instance, a new cloud clipboard that will sync across machines, dark theme support for File Explorer, "updated" snipping tool and improvements to Microsoft Edge.

Russian Federation starts biggest war games since USSR
The country's war games in Eastern Europe a year ago , Zapad-2017, saw 12,700 troops take part according to Moscow . Week-long deployment alongside Chinese, Mongolian armies dubbed "Vostok-2018" will start in eastern Siberia on Sep.

Even more frustrating is the fact that Windows displays this prompt even when you're installing yet another browser. However, Microsoft tries to counter this by allowing the warnings to be turned off "in the future".

Still, Microsoft building a dedicated popup into the OS for users trying to install other browsers is rather telling. "If I wanted to use your browser, I would".

Hong Kong and Macau are expected to be ripped through by the storm, according to the latest trajectory through the Western Pacific.

For years now, Microsoft has been fighting what really feels like a losing battle against Google and Mozilla, two big players in the internet browser space.

It shows you the problem: Microsoft added a new "Show me app recommendations" feature, which is enabled by default. It's particularly bold for Microsoft to surface this pop-up as soon as you try to launch the installer for another browser as well, and we can't really see its existence sitting well with the larger Windows 10 userbase. We have a serious bone to pick with Windows 10's development team here: This message sounds like it's about safety, but it's just about Microsoft's profits. Now it's trying to intercept people before they install Chrome or Firefox without actually preventing them from installing those browsers. Considering the popularity of Chrome and Firefox, Microsoft's tact to shame users into using Edge isn't going to be well received.
