It has been observed that last week Microsoft started testing a prompted warning message for Windows 10 users when they tried to install Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox on their computer. Microsoft is reversing its controversial test in the latest update of Windows 10 released last Friday 14th September 2018 and it is believed that Microsoft is no longer intending to include this warning in their upcoming update for October 2018 but there’s a chance that the company might continue to test these types of prompts in the future.
The reason for this prompt is to stick the users of Windows 10 to the built-in Edge browser at the time of Chrome or Firefox installation. Microsoft has used the same prompt when you try to set your Default Browser as Chrome or Firefox. Microsoft has used this technique in the past to the Google Chrome’s users by warning them that “Google’s browser is draining your battery fast”
