‘Give Microsoft Edge a Shot’

The title of this post sounds quite like a marketing gimmick by Microsoft to promote their new Windows 10 browser. It could be for a TV commercial or online advertisement. Actually it is the messages Windows 10 users may see if a new ‘feature’ in a forthcoming Windows 10 update is left in place when they attempt to change their default browser to Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Microsoft has already made it a pain for users to change their default browser by making them do it from within the Windows 10 settings instead of allowing from within the browser itself. But, now they are begging you not to change your default browser. Again, this change is in a yet to be released update for Windows 10 and it could be yanked (though not likely unless say the EU gets on Microsoft’s case again) before released to the public.
