Microsoft Tries To Keep Users Away From Chrome And Firefox
Bing users are receiving alert messages urging them to stick with Microsoft's Edge browser rather than Chrome or Firefox.By Katie Link | September 7, 2015
Microsoft is taking self-promotion to a new level. The company has designed a new approach to try to keep Windows 10 users on its new Internet browser, Edge.
An alert message pops up on search engine site Bing when users type in the words "Chrome" or "Firefox." The message reads, "Microsoft recommends Microsoft Edge for Windows 10," and it provides a link to the reasons.
A writer for VentureBeat tried it out and noticed that the message did not reappear after searching for those keywords a second time.
