Microsoft's Edge browser has intrusive behavior

After testing the new Edge browser, Microsoft appears to be returning to its old habits because users who aren't using their new web browser are under pressure to install it.

Some downsides of the new Microsoft browser have been discovered in recent weeks, and the most frustrating aspect is controlling your entire PC at startup.

With Edge, Microsoft should have taken a new direction without having to technically and legally force users to place a massive load on its old version of Internet Explorer.

After Microsoft briefly tried to use the Chromium engine itself as the Google Chrome browser, Microsoft decided to reduce the loss.

When Edge first started on Chromium, it looked like a great alternative to Chrome that could be used by millions of people.

Microsoft started offering Edge to all Windows users two months ago. Microsoft previously announced that a Windows 10 update will automatically install the browser (unless it was previously installed separately).

Users are clearly not happy with the updated status, as Microsoft has not indicated that the installation process actually involves ignoring the default custom browser settings.

After installation, Edge displays a popup window in full screen mode on the device, where users can be defined in the new browser, regardless of whether the user has set (Chrome), (Firefox), or another browser as the default browser.

The window forces users to import their data from another browser, and Edge does this in the background without request or notification. There is no clear way to stop this, and Microsoft does not delete imported data unless it is rejected.

Upon completion of the setup process, the Edge icon will remain installed on the taskbar and you will be prompted to use Edge the next time you open the website.

It should be noted that this behavior is the expected result of spyware and hacking software. Given that the company incurred legal and financial losses in Europe because of its association with Windows Internet Explorer, we can assume that the software giant is more cautious.
