Microsoft to ‘warn’ Windows 10 users not to install Chrome or Firefox
#11
I am a little curious why Chrome crashed on my laptop the other day, then the shortcut button disappeared off the tool bar at the bottom of the screen. 

Even though the Chrome icon was still on the main screen, and the program showing as being installed on the laptop, it still would not open or run. 

In the end I did a Chrome download, and instantly Chrome was back and working with all my bookmarks and so forth in place as if it had never had a problem. 

Dare I suggest M$ are "tampering" to make users frustrated with non M$ products.  Thinking-about  Big Grin

Stuff 'em.. and Apple while I'm at it... they won't get money from me for something I can find that works better from elsewhere.  Coffee

Wouldn't put it past them.

Also being seeing a lot of "critical" Windoze updates coming in and forcing a reboot even during a protected time. Go back in and check the settings - settings still good, but it updates anyway.

Another reason a Macs are my primary machines. My 11 year old Mac runs faster than my 3 year old PC. Just have to be careful of the number of programs I have open as that Mac is limited to 6 GB of RAM. Laptop has 16 GB and and SSD and of course, runs circles around the PC.

I'm using Win 10 build IP 17754.1 with 17758.1 (rs5_release) waiting to be installed. Edge has come a long way and with Extensions it is getting better. It still will not replace FF or Chrome as I use both extensively, but now I have started to use Edge for more MS related dev sites. Of course it doesn't help that I have dozens of tabs open in each one and it gets a bit much to keep track of it.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Yep to that I switched to a Mac after my windows 7 system died and I haven’t looked back.

There was a major Chrome update a couple of days ago.
Open a new tab and the mini screenshot on frequently accessed sites has been replaced with a simple icon.
