Options provided are to open Microsoft Edge or install the other browser anyway. The Verge points out that Microsoft is simply testing the prompt for now and that the change won't appear in the Windows 10 October update. Some analysts say Edge's share has fallen over the previous year, so maybe Microsoft needs all the help it can get. It's clear Microsoft doesn't know, because it's resorted to using annoying pop-up warnings when users try to install another browser.
The intercepting of installers on Windows is a new low, however. As per the images shared by the users, a dialog box appears when someone launches an installer for another browser.
While the popup tries to talk users out of installing the alternative browsers, it will still allow you to install the other browsers if you click the "Install Anyway" button.
Hurricane Florence: Residents told to 'heed the warnings' Duke Energy has around 4 million customers in North and SC , and says it could take several weeks to restore the electricity. As residents of the region prepared by stocking up on essentials, officials called on them to evacuate to higher ground.
Microsoft is not actually preventing users from installing the third-party browser but is just adding another step to the process.
While it seems that Microsoft plans to integrate an option to disable these "warnings", it remains to be seen how that will look like.
The fact that his app recommendation feature is default might be irritating for some users, as they've long already decided they don't want anything to do with the Windows 10 default browser. Google doesn't put up a warning page when you search for Firefox, and it doesn't try to slow you down when you install another browser on Android. Again, this happens only in Windows 10 version 1809 on the Insider channel. The prompt appears to be coming on the version 1809 or Windows 10 October Update which is now being tested by Windows Insiders.
In my opinion, the operating system you choose to run should remain independent of the software you choose to install, but Microsoft clearly disagrees with that view based on a new tweak to Windows 10. That's the question Microsoft keeps asking itself, and like the lead in a romantic comedy, it's trying its darndest to make sure you take it back, rather than falling for the superficial charms of hunky Firefox or the Chrome lothario.
