    Microsoft is getting ready to warn Windows 10 users not to install Chrome or Firefox.

    With that said, much more annoying is using Google as a home page in any browser but Chrome. Yep, that incessant, "Switch to Chrome" pop up.

    I right click the "switch to chrome message" and block it with uBlockOrigin.

    Good to know Ublock can do it. Adblock+ can't.
