Microsoft has recently started showing the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge as the recommended choice whenever someone searches for Chrome on Windows 10, and now the search giant is using a similar approach for its very own browser.

In other words, Google is now trying to convince Edge users to try out Google Chrome using its very own arsenal.

More specifically, TechDows has discovered that when signing in to a Google account using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, Google sends the typical sign-in notification on Gmail to warn users about the new login. But in addition to the warning message, Google has also included a small surprise.

“Make the most out of Windows 10 with the Chrome browser. Chrome is a fast, simple and secure browser, built for the modern web,” a message included in this email reads.

I only "visit" Google when the captive portal for the WiFi at my hotel sends me there after a successful login. It defaults to opening the page in MS Edge, where Google often adds a note asking me to install Chrome for a "better" experience. I have Edge set not to save any cookies or history, since I use it mainly as a PDF reader. (If I use Firefox - always in private mode - to log in to the captive portal, Google does not ask me to install Chrome.)

You can always block that with content blocker extension like uBlock Origin. Or just keep that one cookie.

Not as nearly annoying as Edge ads in Windows 10 that cannot be turned off.
