Oh joy… :Z

More misinformation they are getting more and more desperate now…

The notifications recommend users to switch to Microsoft’s browser.
This is called adware no matter how you look or turn it 360.

“Microsoft Edge is safer than Firefox. It blocks 21% more socially engineered malware. Learn more.”
Learn more don’t use Edge - this is what malware action is like.

Microsoft doesn’t see any harm in the notifications.
Hello…it’s called malware ads…

The company also stresses that users can easily disable the notifications.
I find this hard to believe…why even have it in the first place then?

Many users consider them to be advertisement
geezes I wonder where this came from??? :cool:

Firefox has plenty of addons, and many of those addons can be used to harden Firefox’s security. I don’t know if Edge has any addons at all. If it does, chances are, there aren’t very many addons to choose from.

Also, since Firefox is mostly free (as in freedom) software, anyone who doesn’t like it has the legal right to modify it. There are plenty of modified version out there for those who are unable or unwilling to do all the work of maintaining their own modded version.

the first thing I did on windows 10 was remove edge and also make it work like windows 7. Also rand a donotspy program to stop them from spying on me

I’m inclined to be a little snappy :bigsmile:

So we have a dysfunctional product that claims to be more safe than said product. Sure, it obviously ain’t working and so why not
