    Microsoft now has recommendation for Edge browser in the taskbar


    Following advertisements being run on Outlook website, Start Menu, and Windows Search, Microsoft is now adding advertisement or recommendation for Chromium Edge to the Windows 10’s Taskbar.

    If you’re running Windows 10 October 2020 Update and Chromium Edge is pinned to the taskbar, odds are you’ll see a notification that pop-ups in the taskbar and recommends you to try the browser.

    One user sent us a screenshot where the taskbar can be seen urging users to launch Microsoft Edge even when the browser is already running in the background. The advert says you can ‘get back to browsing straight from your taskbar’ and it appears to be a result of a bug in the October 2020 Update or Edge update.

    Fortunately, it’s an easy matter to get rid of such notifications. There are two ways to turn off these notifications – Click on the pinned Edge icon and notification will disappear. Or you can also turn off tips and suggestions option in Settings > System > Notifications & Action.

    Sources who wished to remain anonymous told us that Microsoft is looking into this unexpected behaviour and they might pause the campaign soon.

    Users shouldn’t see the notification when they’re already using Microsoft Edge across Windows. However, for some reasons, Microsoft is unable to detect that Edge is already open and the pop-up is triggered randomly.

    Microsoft has implemented these kinds of ads in other areas of Windows 10, including Windows Search, Start Menu, and we’ve also seen ads in Outlook.com.

    Microsoft is heavily promoting the Chromium Edge because it’s new and it uses the same old Edge brand, so it’s possible that a lot of users are unaware of the Chromium edition and its unique features.

    It’s also worth noting Chromium Edge has received some pretty positive feedback so far and the market share of the browser is also booming.

    In fact, Microsoft Edge market share is likely to improve after Internet Explorer is discontinued and users are redirected to the new browser.

    Microsoft is developing a built-in ad blocker for its Edge browser

    "One of the first browser add-ons many people install to improve their online experience is Adblock Plus or something similar. Until recently, Microsoft Edge's lack of support for add-ons put off a lot of would-be users, but reports from Build 2016 suggest that native ad blocking is on its way to the Internet Explorer successor.

    Adblock Plus is coming to Edge, but built-in ad blocking would negate the need for such an add-on. A slide shown off and snapped at a Build presentation shows that the next version of Edge, in response to user feedback, will feature ad blocking capabilities. There's no word on delivery timescale, but the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update would seem a likely candidate.

    ZDNet's Ed Bott photographed the slide which shows Microsoft's development roadmap built around feedback from testers. Right at the top of the list is reference to plans to create a plugin and extension store for Edge, but it's entry number four that's more intriguing.

    "Build ad blocking features into the browser" is listed as a Feature Request from users. But the good news is that it is not only listed as being "Deliverable 4682811", but as "Targeted for the next version".

    This will no doubt come as good news for those who have fallen in love with Edge, but it's not something that will be welcomed by the likes of Adblock Plus. It does seem that, particularly in the mobile arena, there is a move to baking ad blocking into the browser so it makes sense that Microsoft is following the trend. But it is the fact that Edge straddles Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile that makes this a particularly interesting move.

    Keep an eye out for Insider builds in the coming weeks as the feature may be just around the corner.
    "

    Forget extensions, built-in ad blocking is coming to Microsoft Edge - [UPDATE... no it's not!]
