Microsoft is testing a big change that will force Windows 10 users to open links within Edge web browser, regardless of whether it’s the default browser.

Also remember that once they successfully "cut off Netscape's air supply" (their words, not mine), IE6 and the web stagnated for years until Firefox came along and there was an actual need to continue development.

We don't want that sort of thing to happen again. But today it's Chrome, not Edge or Firefox, that has the potential to conquer the web. Firefox was on top for a wile, but thanks to aggressive marketing by Google and most recently a flury of bad decisions at Mozilla, Firefox is slowly fading away.

But in today's climate where companies are out to harvest and sell every tidbit about me that they can, I wouldn't touch a proprietary browser with a ten foot pole. An example of things they do that threaten privacy is assigning users a globally unique advertising ID. This means advertisers can still track you, even if you always delete cookies.

At Microsoft, I'll give it a try, if you'll kindly point me to the Linux version. You are all about embracing openness and cross-platform development today, aren't you?

Screw Microsoft!

After over 20 years of windows I finally converted to Linux (Manjaro with Cinnamon) back in November and never looked back. It doesn't use Edge either.

I would also recommend Solus for a rock-steady, easy to use distro; and MX Linux for a more high-performance distro that's light on resources.

Don't use Windows if you can avoid it. It is a bloatware monstrosity that pushes ads and gathers your data. There are only 2 reasons to use Windows: PC gaming, and business.
