The popup notes that users already have Edge as part of Windows 10, and claims that it is the safer and faster browser.
They're then given two options: "Open Microsoft Edge" or "Install anyway".
At the center of the new saga is a new "app recommendation" feature that is turned on by default under "Apps & Features" in the latest Windows 10 October 2018 Update (Redstone 5) Insider build.
"Dropbox or Google Drive are outdated thanks to the great OneDrive feature in Windows 10". This is no way to encourage more users to start using Edge. However, now Microsoft has been spotted testing a warning that suggests users utilise Microsoft Edge instead, instead of installing Chrome or Firefox. Judging from the current implementation it will be opt-out which means that the intercepting prompts are displayed to all users by default who attempt third-party software installations. This was also confirmed by a Microsoft spokesperson to ZDNet.
This isn't the only message in Windows 10 that promotes Microsoft Edge. Meanwhile, another Twitter user reported the same issue with Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera, and Firefox browsers.
Even more frustrating is the fact that Windows displays this prompt even when you're installing yet another browser. Now it's being used to trumpet Edge, too. For example, Microsoft has used the "tips, tricks, and suggestions" feature-again, enabled by default-to suggest you use Edge with intrusive pop-ups on your taskbar. Some analysts say Edge's share has fallen over the a year ago, so maybe Microsoft needs all the help it can get. The Verge points out that Microsoft is simply testing the prompt for now and that the change won't appear in the Windows 10 October update.
Let's assume you ignore these reminders and download Firefox or Chrome. People use Windows in the real world to run a variety of applications, not just connect to Microsoft services in half-baked "Universal" apps, "Metro" apps, or whatever we're calling them now. "If I wanted to use your browser, I would". So maybe you should make Edge a better browser instead of thinking up new ways to shove it in our faces.
