Microsoft Discouraging Chrome Downloads With Prompts in Edge ➝

Tom Warren, writing for The Verge:

Windows 10 and Windows 11 have both started displaying new prompts when people navigate to the Chrome download page, in an effort to discourage people from installing Google’s rival browser.

This is pretty scummy, but not surprising at all given Microsoft’s history of anti-competitive behavior.

You really shouldn’t be using Google Chrome, though. Try Firefox or Brave instead.
