Windows 10 Tries to Push Firefox and Chrome Over the Edge

Share

Word comes from beta testers of the update report the screenshot below pops up if you try and install a competing browser on your PC.

The warning says Edge is "the safer, faster browser" and it encourages you to open Microsoft Edge instead of installing the other browser. A user who initiates the installation of a browser does so on objective. There is also an option to disable the warning type in the future but that leads to the Apps listing of the Settings application and no option to do anything about that. The company recommends users to install Edge on its official websites, and asks users to use Edge instead of a different browser when they try changing their default browser on the OS.

It found nearly half of the 44,000 workers questioned had experienced poor mental health in their current job. Prince William has confessed he "took a lot home without realising" when he worked as an air ambulance pilot.

It shows you the problem: Microsoft added a new "Show me app recommendations" feature, which is enabled by default.

The app suggestions feature is part of the "Apps & Features" setting in the Settings app, where you can control whether or not you can install apps from outside the Microsoft Store. 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.

Inbox by Gmail will be shut down in March 2019
Fortunately, because Inbox requires a Gmail account to use, all the messages in their Inbox account are also still on Gmail. When I reviewed Inbox back in 2014 I quickly realized that the service was not something that I wanted to use.

While Windows 10 only recommends Edge over other browsers right now, Microsoft could push more of its apps with these "recommendations". Considering the popularity of Chrome and Firefox, Microsoft's tact to shame users into using Edge isn't going to be well received.

Text in the pop-up claims that Edge is a "faster, safer" browser for the Windows 10 operating system. How do you get those people to give Edge a chance? Most Windows 10 users click through all these annoying prompts and use Chrome instead. It shows a smiling person standing in front of the Edge logo, leading what is presumably their best life now that they've broken free of Chrome and Firefox. You are then given an inviting blue button to open Edge or a nasty grey one to install the browser you went out of your way to download.
