Just yesterday, we reported that Microsoft is offering extra credits to Bing Rewards users for using Microsoft Edge in Windows 10. We previously stated that Microsoft really wants Windows 10 users to use Edge as their default browser, and not to download other browsers using Edge. The software giant is now recommending users to use Microsoft Edge when they search for “Chrome” or “Firefox” for the first time in Bing on a Windows 10 device.

Obviously, this isn’t anything surprising — companies like Google has been displaying download links to their own browser (Chrome) when a user visits Google from any other browser. It’s worth noting that Microsoft Edge already has a decent share of 2.03% in PC browser market. It’ll be interesting to see if more users start using Edge once it gets more features, especially extension support.
