In the latest Insider Preview build for Windows 10 Redstone 5, Microsoft introduced a controversial change that forces users into Edge when clicking links in emails via the built-in Windows 10 Mail app. Many people are not too pleased at this news, and rightly so, but is it okay for Microsoft to be doing this?
After all, it is Microsoft's platform. Surely, Microsoft has a right to change how its own software behaves? At the same time, it seems a little unfair and a bit desperate. Many people prefer to use Chrome or Firefox because they perform better, although Edge has been improving massively over the last few releases.
Perhaps the recent change is just a temporary one to get data on how Sets handles switching tabs automatically. Microsoft says it will revert the change depending on feedback, so if you love or hate this change make sure you submit your thoughts on it via the Feedback Hub.
I personally am not too bothered by this issue because I already use Microsoft Edge as my daily browser, but I can absolutely see why some people would be upset to hear that Microsoft is now essentially pushing Edge onto people. What are your thoughts? Let us know in our forums!
