Microsoft backs off from 'warning' about Chrome and Firefox
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-09-17 11:06:01

Microsoft started testing a warning for Windows 10 users last week that displayed a prompt when Chrome or Firefox was about to be installed. The software giant is now reversing this controversial test in its latest Windows 10 preview, released last Friday. The Verge understands Microsoft no longer plans to include this warning in the upcoming Windows 10 October 2018 Update that will ship next month, but that the company may continue to test these types of prompts in future updates.

Good move, but I don't think we've seen the last of this quite yet.
