Microsoft’s position on Windows 10 revealed a facet that many were unaware of. If, on the one hand, the tech giant Microsoft tried to force all its users the upgrade to this new version, on the other hand, the tech giant Microsoft has been trying to get users to use its own software in every possible way. Yes, according to the latest reports, the tech giant Microsoft reportedly warning users not to install the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10.

The latest case comes from its own well-known web browser, yes, I am not talking about the Internet Explorer, as I am talking about the well-known browser, Microsoft edge, which seems to be about to be imposed on users trying to install Chrome or Firefox.

With build 1809 of the Insiders program of Windows 10, the tech giant Microsoft seems to have decided that Edge is the browser to be used. It is not blocking the installation of its direct competitors but has arranged a way to try to block users from installing other browsers like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

What happens is simple and seems to seek to push users to this browser. At the end of the installation of the other browsers, a pop-up window is presented that presents the Edge as a much faster browser than the other browsers of competitors.

In addition, it is possible to directly open the well-known web browser of the tech giant Microsoft, of course, I am talking about the Edge browser, pushing users away from new browsers and making sure they do not use them.

This is not the first time that the tech giant Microsoft has tried this approach to make its well-known web browser, of course, I am talking about the Edge browser stand out from the competition, praising its qualities.

It is not known if the tech giant Microsoft will decide to keep this notification in the final version of the next major update of Windows 10 or if it is just a test that is reserved for everyone who is in the Insiders program.

Moreover, the tech giant Microsoft seems to have chosen this path simply to highlight its products within its operating system, which very soon will receive the next major update. This boost could be a precious help to the well-known web browser of the tech giant Microsoft, of course, I am talking about the Edge browser who is losing market its slowly from the competition, but would hardly be welcomed by users.
