Microsoft is testing a warning for Windows 10 users not to install Chrome or Firefox.
The software giant is in the final stages of testing its Windows 10 this October, during the test a new change appears when you try to install a rival web browser, displaying the following information “You already have Microsoft Edge – the safer, faster browser for Windows 10” this message appears when you run the Chrome or Firefox installers on the latest Windows 10 from October 2018 Update.
During subsequent changes, Microsoft does test featured changes over the course of its updates, but this particular change was not documented in the company’s various blog posts and appeared very late in the testing stages. The prompt may still appear in a future Windows 10 update, but that will depend on feedback to this controversial change.
While the prompts can be turned off, they’re yet another example of Microsoft infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads and pop-ups.
