Really Mozilla!?? Your complaining about such a minor issue!?
Just because your browser isn't the default browser doesn't mean it won't be used. I personally use Mozilla Firefox for 50% of my browser time and the rest goes to edge.
Plus, I see lots of people that use Firefox exclusively but have IE as default...
You're missing the point. Why is MSFT changing my settings at all when upgrading? They are acting like a MONOPOLIST AGAIN (as they were guilty and convicted of before).
I guess you won't get the point until Firefox=Netscape etc...
It isn't about whether EDGE is good or not. It's about making the decision that I have to see it FOR ME, and WITHOUT my consent and some may really not know how to change it back, in which case - mission accomplished for MSFT. They are using their OS to gain browser share (AGAIN). They should have been broken up the first time they were guilty...They're doing the same by giving away windows, in hopes to stop the march of Android/ARM into their world (along with attempting to make DX12 default before Vulkan hits on other platforms)...Here we go again. You don't seem to understand how this affects millions of potential users (maybe even devs), in many different ways and further pushing the MSFT agenda. Many of these people would NEVER have chosen to see edge, and look at the effect on you stating you use it 50% of the time. You are the exact case they are complaining about here. Many wouldn't ever see it, and MSFT couldn't do this without the OS upgrade.
If the OS/Office/Entertainment divisions were 3 companies, nobody could force DX12, Edge, etc on you easily. But I digress...Can't say I blame them for using their monopoly, just saying it isn't legal
And SHOULDN'T BE either.
In regards to other posters, installing firefox/chrome was just a button on a website most pushed. For many that is EASY (even the less techy among us can do this). Many that pushed those buttons (or others) have no idea what windows settings are etc and likely the most often among us who hit DEFAULT/Express and never look back (customize? that could take me ages...NEXT...ROFL). As an IT person, I have seen things that boggle my mind for a sec before I realize, oh yeah, this is my JOB, not the users. IE, I'm sure I boggle the mind of my mechanic with some of my questions when I bring my car in sometimes...LOL. My job is not fixing cars
It doesn't make me stupid (maybe ignorant to some extent), it just means I have ZERO interest in learning about a car. I would say something different 30yrs ago, but today not worth learning something I probably can't fix with dad's old tools (oil, etc about it now for me). Many I face in IT talk the same way about their PC (users I mean).
