In order to recommend more users to use the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser on the Windows 11 platform, some of Microsoft’s practices have disgusted many users.
Now, Windows 11 users say that when users try to install Chrome on the beta version of the Edge browser, Microsoft will issue a warning to try to prevent users from downloading.
As you can see in the screenshot above, if you jump to the Chrome page and want to download the browser, the pop-up window on the Edge browser displays “Microsoft Edge uses the same technology as Chrome, and provides additional security from Microsoft Sexual protection”. It also includes a button called “Safe Browsing” that, when pressed, will take the user to another web page, emphasizing Edge’s performance, security, and other advantages over other browsers.
It is worth noting that this window is only for users who browse to the Chrome download page, so if you try to install Firefox, Vivaldi or Opera, such a reminder will not pop up.
This window will only appear for users who use the beta version of the Edge browser. According to foreign media, this notification is triggered by a server-side update, so it should have nothing to do with the version of Windows 11.
