Well it gives Microsoft the Edge. Building a browser that works and is great with Windows 10 and make everyone else figure it out was great strategy for them. I use Firefox and yeah on Win10 it has issues but they will figure it out.

Well Windows 10 was only just released. Give it a few weeks and Firefox will work just as well on Windows 10 as on other platforms.

I upgraded on a test workstation just to see what the fuss was about, and also decided to use Edge as the default browser when asked. So far, Edge has been everything that IE was not, and that can only be a good thing.

Still early days though.

So we are up in arms because people have to launch Firefox from an icon and select the make it my default button. Really? I have had zero problems getting Windows 10 to let me change out anything. Be it my browser, or my media player. It really doesn't care. Like other versions of Windows in the past, people needed something to bitch about. And if this ends up being the big whoop de do, then that works for me.

Probably moreso because the button tells you to click start, settings, default settings. It doesn't do it for you like in windows 8.

You cannot uninstall Edge nor Cortana.

Someone should call the EU and bring back the anti-trust pitchforks.

It depends on your workflow. If you perform 100% of your work in a browser, then yes, it's not a big deal. If you open external links from an email client, from PDFs, from other documents - they'll always use your default browser - and you will end up opening the default browser.

And the very first thing Firefox does is ask you to make it the default.

Mozilla keeps getting good points in my book.

For most users this won't matter. As soon as they install an update to Flash Player or Java they will get a new browser (most likely chrome), search engine (most likely Ask), and a nice toolbar to boot!

Nope. That's the point of this feature. It removes the option of changing defaults when a program installs. You have to open the settings page to change defaults.

Coming from the company that changes it's setting often and took away our function of using the ESC button to stop those annoying animated GIFs.

"people’s previous settings and defaults"

Did you read the letter? It's talking about ALL user settings, not just a specific one or two like your comment seems to infer...

A well written letter. I haven't upgraded yet, does anyone have a guide to the upgrade process and how to do what he's describing in terms of retaining your settings?

Basically don't use the express install.

its not that bad at all. I upgraded yesterday, and chrome took me directly to the setting that needed changing: a simple drop down and it was done.

I thought this was about the os data mining your privacy? You don't have access to those settings without the entrepreneur edition irrc.

haha well done. I'm a web developer / designer, and have been building and using computers since I was 6, and I still have never tried any Linux OS. I know next to nothing about it. Any advice as to what verse to visit to ask some questions?
