    Microsoft: Windows 10 Users Should Say No to Chrome and Firefox


    Last Updated: 23 Oct 2015 at 05:02
    The company will display messages to convince you


    Windows 10 comes with Edge, the new default browser developed not only to replace Internet Explorer but also to help the company compete against rivals such as Google Chrome and Firefox.

    And because it was really designed to be a better competitor for browsers that are already on the market, Edge includes lots of improvements, while others, such as extension support, are currently on their way.

    But the promise of a great browser doesn't seem to be enough to convince users not to jump ship, so the company is now looking into new ways to do that, including some messages displayed when a browser change is very close to taking place.

    Thanks for posting that.
    I will stick with Edge all the way, I don't have CHROME as I don't like it.
    Fire Fox & Opera my friends have had when their IE browser played up and what I saw of them I did not like.
    Edge is the future and I aim for one to use it all the time, that is why I have dumped IE11 as well.
    I can hard surf with it go to any site or forum I went to with IE11, the only difference Edge does not Crash or Freeze.
    Now coming up to 6 weeks of using Edge and not once can I complain

    When I start getting pop-ups when changing a default, then I will DEFINITELY Make the change! I can't stand pushy people or pushy tactics. "Oh come on give it a try, you might just like it"- Sounds like peer pressure to smoke that 1st cigarette(or something stronger) to me

    Microsoft apps lack everything user friendly, but MS still consider them superior, typical MS.

    Needs to add features that I use before I make it the default

    Main one for me is syncing of favourites/usernames between my devices, IE does this so I see no reason to change

    Adding a feature like being able to write on websites and classing this as a major improvement over other browsers has no interest to me
    Cortana is a nice feature in Edge, but apart from that it offers nothing over the other browsers

    In time I will most likely switch to Edge, but at the moment I have no reason to

    I like Chrome!!!
    The bookmarks and add-ons sync between my pc and my Chromebook and my mobile phone.
    I have a great Evernote add-on, which I can clip web pages to notes etc.
    A Gmail add-on, which gives me drop down information about my incoming emails.
    A Task add-on which syncs with my Google tasks.
    A 1Password add-on which fills in my private logins and password information.
    Etc,Etc,Etc......
    It would take a massive improvement in Edge to make me switch. I can't see that happening for several years.

    Is there a site showing available Edge addons and extensions? I would like to see what's available before even thinking about switching.

    There aren't any, they have been delayed until next year

    That is very good news :)
    That might get me to switch over when that gets to the public release
