Microsoft’s Underhanded Tactics to Promote Edge
Microsoft has been pushing its Edge browser with some questionable tactics. Despite the company’s efforts, many users are still not convinced that it is a better alternative to other browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox.
The latest controversy surrounds Microsoft’s decision to make Edge the default web browser in Windows 10 and replace Internet Explorer completely. This means that if you want to use another browser, you have to manually change your settings each time you open up your computer – an inconvenience for most people who prefer their current choice of internet browsing software.
Furthermore, this move by Microsoft has caused issues with certain programs, which rely on Internet Explorer being installed on computers running Windows 10; these programs may no longer work correctly due to the lack of IE support within Edge. It seems clear then why so many users are unhappy about this situation: they feel like Microsoft is making Windows worse instead of improving upon it by forcing them into using a different web browser than what they’re used to!
At any rate, while there may be benefits associated with switching over from IE/other browsers to Edge (such as improved security), it appears that Microsoft needs to find more user-friendly ways of promoting its product rather than resorting back to dirty tricks again!Read more at PCWorld
