Microsoft to ‘warn’ Windows 10 users not to install Chrome or Firefox

RE: Microsoft to ‘warn’ Windows 10 users not to install Chrome or Firefox
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.

Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

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.

I LOVED my Mac... until my young daughter through a hairbrush at her sister. She missed her sister but broke my machine. Gee, I miss that Mac.

But, truly, I'm a Windows PC person. I game. A lot. (too much actually rofl)
Way back when in my PC infancy, I played a lot of Facebook games- ESPECIALLY Farmville. Over the years, games stopped working on one browser or another and I'd switch. Then Google Talk (computer/computer or computer/phone) stopped working on one browser or another. Switched it up some more. Hubby and I live in separate homes on the same property. That is how we talked every day. Friggin Google Hangouts was born which we hated.

Back when I was a complete internet noob, IE gave me too many viruses to count. I lost complete faith in them when it cost me a much loved PC. So, throughout all that switching I did, it was never to IE!

Bouncing back and forth as I have and using everything under the sun, I finally settled on Chrome. It just feels right. I have no problems with it. Everything works, now-a-days, like it's supposed to.
I still get little pop-ups about 'try Edge blah blah'... I have it installed, but I never use it unless I need to access a secondary email account and don't want to log out of my primary one.

I am EAGERLY looking forward to October though. But not for Windows. I couldn't care less lol. I want the new iPad to be released already (mine died a couple months ago and I've been holding off replacing it)

I started out with a Tandy MOdel 1. Actually, I took a year of FORTRAN2/4 when I was in college in the early 70s. Had a couple of Tandy machines, then went to WIndows, and now my primary machine is an 11-year-old MAC. Love to get another one, but it is very pricey at the moment. I work with various browsers and use Chrome most of the time. My "work" computer uses FireFox. I have had some good experiences with Opera and Aviator. Aviator is great as its default mode is private browsing. 

Over the years I have found when it comes to browsers it is personal preference unless you have someone who has decided the only one that will work with their site is Microsoft Internet Explorer or Edge.
