Google starting to feel the heat and getting more heavy handed!

Whether you like it or not the new Edge has and continues to be a growing success. My browsers have been Opera 3.xx all the way to 12.xx to Chrome 1.xx until about edge got released.

I recently tried logging on a youtube account from my laptop with edge installed and this is what google emailed me! This is their latest 'tactic'!. When edge released they were putting up an obnoxious in your face prompt to download a more secure and modern Chrome browser!

When the captive portal I have to use takes me to Google in Edge, I get an annoying ad from Google telling me to install Chrome to end annoying ads :D

Now that I have Chromium Edge installed, Google is getting more clever. Clicking the HUGE BLUE BUTTON "Set Now" offers to log me into a Google account (which I don't have) instead of the Edge privacy settings menu, which is what I expected.
