Microsoft Discourages Firefox And Chrome At Bing Users

Microsoft uses its own Bing search engine to prevent Internet users use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Who through Bing for 'firefox' or 'chrome' is looking for gets a big black bar on the screen stating that Microsoft Windows 10 recommends the use of Microsoft Edge.

This was discovered by VentureBeat. The bar also contains a button that a page opens with the advantages of Microsoft Edge. The page is available only for US users only, the message isn’t showing up in other countries.The black bar appears also to be shown once and does not appear in the search for 'opera'. Microsoft said in a statement that the notification is intended to give people information quickly and easily. In the past also Yahoo and Google to bring people in a similar way to have to adjust their browser or search engine.
