New Prompts in Windows are Mocking Google Chrome

It’s obvious that Microsoft would like all Windows users to use the Edge browser instead of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or other browsers. Edge is the built-in browser for Windows users starting Windows 10. Even Windows 7 users are free to give Microsoft Edge a try.

Chrome stays strong on top of the most used browsers in the world. It’s a little embarrassing for a company like Microsoft that Windows 10 or Windows 11 users prefer to use another browser instead of the one that’s built into the operating system itself. Therefore, Microsoft has come up with some new and amusing ways to try making its users stay away from Google Chrome, and Neowin reveals to us some of them. We must admit that those from Microsoft have a strong sense of humor:

  • “That browser is so 2008! Do you know what’s new? Microsoft Edge.”
  • “Microsoft Edge runs on the same technology as Chrome, with the added trust of Microsoft.”
  • “‘I hate saving money,’ said no one ever. Microsoft Edge is the best browser for online shopping.”

Windows 10 and Windows 11 users are receiving such prompts. Microsoft Edge might be nowhere weaker than Chrome, but people still prefer the latter more for one reason or another.

When it comes to Microsoft Edge for Windows users, Microsoft has only good things to say via the Redmond-based giant’s website:

Microsoft Edge is the best browser for Windows. Sync your passwords, favorites, and settings across multiple devices and start using Microsoft Edge today.

You can also run Microsoft Edge on Xbox One, Android, iPhones and iOS, macOS, and Linux.

Feel free to tell us in a comment if you like Microsoft Edge and what platform do you prefer it installed on! The browser certainly works smoothly and can be perceived as a suitable alternative for Google Chrome.
