Neowin responds to the word 'trust' displayed in the warning, 'trust as the default browser when the power is turned on for the first time' and 'trust to forcibly display recommended content such as the Discover function '. 'Trust that you can't remove Edge from your computer,' he quips.

Similar to Microsoft displaying a warning recommending Edge, Google is also displaying a popup recommending Chrome. However, in the case of Google, the warning will only be displayed when you open the Google website. Also, when you try to download another browser using Chrome, you will not be warned to continue using Chrome.

Note that this warning is no longer displayed in the latest version of Edge. Neowin says, 'This warning seems to be only displayed in some regions and for some users.'
