Microsoft wants you to use Edge over Chrome in Windows, the firm has made that clear in more ways than one, but users have a continually rejected Redmond’s homemade browser for Google’s generally superior offering. Now Microsoft, in windows 10 version 1809, is asking users to see what causes them to switch browsers from the default, as spotted by tech blog HTNovo.

Microsoft made a number of improvements to Microsoft Edge with the Windows 10 October Update including a new dictionary feature for its reading mode, but the firm has yet to woo users over to its browser en masse absent a small bud dedicated cadre of general Microsoft fans.

Microsoft’s Edge currently sits at 4.32% of the market as per netmarketshare, while Chrome and Firefox dominate both in market share and in mindshare. On the one hand, while Windows users may be annoyed at the now routine prompts for feedback on this matter or that, the firm has nothing to lose. In the case of Edge, users can’t choose to not use Edge harder.
