    Whining over microsoft making their browser default like they've done with what.... every single windows release? Makes me want to use Firefox even less. So what, they feel like their browser should be in the default windows install or something? Cry more mozilla...

    And what's this about over riding a users browser preference to "make sure this is the default browser"? I've had zero issues making chrome my default browser.

    Something has to be default and I sure in the hell don't see Microsoft making it Firefox. Only makes sense for it to be Microsoft's own product. How ridiculous for Mozilla to complain that Microsoft uses their own product on their own product.

    Windows 10 is a new OS. That CEO needs to learn new things and stop complaining.

    It's like a car and some other guy complaining about the radio in your car.

    There was a big hoohaa in the EU about IE being included in Windows. That's were the N option came from so that there was a pop up to chose various browsers.

    Like in most things, follow the money. There is more advertising money to be made in being the default browser / search engine. Mozilla recently swung a big deal with Yahoo to push its search engine. Follow the money, that's what all the whining is about. With Windows 10, it's a little more difficult to become the default browser than before, so it might lose Mozilla some more dollars, hence the whining.

    Edge is tightly coupled with Cortana and so far, there is no way to uncouple it. You can't tell Cortana to use IE 11, Firefox, Chrome, etc.

    You can set the default browser to Firefox and Cortana will use Firefox to search Bing,

    Hi there

    Sour grapes.

    It's like Audi complaining about a feature that is in a BMW car or vice versa. If Mozilla doesn't like what Ms is doing - then do something else or make a BETTER browser.

    It's called Capitalism (and Invention).

    As they say "If you can't take the heat stay out of the Kitchen".

    He is just complaining about this now? Through all of the Windows versions since the conception of Firefox, Internet Explorer (and now Edge) has been the default browser and this is the first time I've ever read about the Mozilla CEO doing this.

    Does he complain to Google since they put Google Chrome as the default browser on Android? No.

    Seems like nothing more than crybaby attitude to me.
