Windows 10 insider build 17744, which will be available in next month to the public as Windows 10 2018 October update has warned a user [https://techdows.com/2018/09/windows-10-warns-to-open-edge-instead-of-installing-firefox.html] when he tries to install Firefox browser to open and use Microsoft Edge. We know Windows 10 nudges to use Edge as the default browser, but this is definitely different. A user shared about this on Twitter, here is what the dialog informed the user.

I'm already an Edge user so I won't be bothered by these dialogs, but it's really annoying how browser makers - and by browser makers I mean Microsoft and Google - are taking every opportunity to shove annoying "please use Chrome/Edge" dialogs in our faces. It's user-hostile behaviour, and it feels cheap and scummy.
