Windows 10 warns users not to install Chrome and Firefox

Windows 10 now begs users to stick with Microsoft Edge when installing Chrome or other browsers
While Microsoft is in the "final stages" of testing the next major Windows 10 update, testers at TechDows seem to have spotted a new feature that prompts user to try Mircosoft Edge instead of the third-party browsers. Microsoft has also added an option "Don't want to be warned in the future" which takes the users to Settings and allows them to disable app recommendations.
The intercepting of installers on Windows is a new low, however.
While Windows 10 only recommends Edge over other browsers right now, Microsoft could push more of its apps with these "recommendations". Maybe all those people clinging to Windows 7 are on to something after all.
Prompts of that sort can be turned off by using the link under the buttons on the popup. If someone is downloading Chrome or Firefox, they've already made their choice as to what browser they want to use. Google doesn't put up a warning page when you search for Firefox, and it doesn't try to slow you down when you install another browser on Android.
Microsoft sells an operating system we all pay for, even if it's built into the cost of the PCs we buy.
WTF?! As demonstrated by the methods it used to get people onto Windows 10, Microsoft isn't averse to using shady tactics when pushing its products. You see, if a user makes the effort to manually download the installer for a browser with Edge, they obviously want to use that browser instead of Edge. To do that requires focusing on making Edge better than the alternatives and marketing it as such.
