Microsoft is Warning Windows 10 Users not to Install Chrome or Firefox

In an attempt to attract more people to its own web browser, Microsoft is testing a warning for Windows 10 users for not installing Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, telling them to use Microsoy edge first.

No! Windows 10 Users will Install Chrome as it’s their personal Choice

Microsoft has almost completed the testing of Windows 10 October 2018 Update. Many people have reported a warning, that appears when someone tries to install a web browser such as Chrome or Firefox.

Whenever users run Chrome or Firefox on Windows 10 October 2018 update, a warning pop up that says:

“You already have Microsoft Edge – the safer, faster browser for Windows 10”.

This warning also gives users the option to Open Microsoft Edge or ‘Install anyway’ just according to user’s choice. It can be disabled by going into Settings.

Developer Sean Hoffman spotted the new prompt and took to Twitter to express his feelings about it.

Even Mozilla Firefox found it weird and regarded it as ‘awkward’.

Regarding this Microsoft said in a statement:

 “We’re currently testing this functionality with insiders only. The Windows Insider Program enables Microsoft to test different features, functionality and garner feedback before rolling out broadly. Customers remain in control and can choose the browser of their choice.”

No Doubt, it is a very poor way of marketing your new product!
