Windows 10 Now Warns Users Not to Install Chrome or Firefox


Ever since Microsoft began the ramp for Windows 10, there’s been an unpleasant aspect to how the company has “marketed” the operating system. Microsoft’s “Get Windows 10” tool began as a helpful notification to let you know when your PC was approved for upgrading and transformed over the course of a year into malware that broke its own UI conventions and deliberately obfuscated user attempts to delay or avoid the upgrade. Eventually, even Microsoft acknowledged that it had gone too far with pushing people to upgrade to the OS.

But the push never really stopped. Windows 10 updates have reset advertising preferences and other defaults. Microsoft introduced ads on the lock screen, ads within File Explorer, ads that show when you use Chrome, and ads for Edge that pop up within Windows 10. With nearly every update (and definitely every year), Microsoft has increased the ways in which Windows 10 begs you to use Windows 10. Now, with the October 2018 update, Microsoft is once again introducing new ways for its operating system to beg you to use the Garbage Browser Officially Known as Edge.
