Google Chrome is undoubtedly the most popular web browser – this is obviously not to the taste of Microsoft, which is pushing the proprietary Edge browser, which was relatively recently based on Chromium, which is the engine that also powers the aforementioned competing program.

The Redmond giant is trying by all means to dissuade Windows users from installing Chrome – Microsoft’s latest idea is displaying special notifications when an Edge user goes to the Google browser download page.
The messages are presented to users of both Windows 10 and 11, and the content is quite entertaining. In free translation into Polish they read:
- Microsoft Edge works using the same technology as Chrome, albeit with added confidence from Microsoft.
- This browser is from 2008! You know what’s new? Microsoft Edge.
- “I hate saving money,” no one ever said. Microsoft Edge is the best browser for making purchases on the web.
These are just examples of the messages displayed – it is possible that there are even more of them. This is another attempt to stop Windows users from using Edge – in Windows 11, Microsoft tries to force them to stay with the default browser using system updates.
