Microsoft Edge has a new survey that appears when you download Google Chrome

Edge is running a campaign to discourage web surfers from using Google Chrome. From banners informing users that it runs on the same engine as Chrome (i.e. Chromium) to challenging Windows users to make Chrome their default browser, Microsoft isn’t making it easy for users to abandon Edge.

However, there Neowin discovered, it looks like Edge is taking things a step further with a survey.

Microsoft asks Google Chrome users why they don’t want Edge

When you download Chrome (after ignoring several prompts telling you not to do so), you’ll see a survey on the side that says:

Microsoft Edge Survey

We look forward to having you with us!

Can you please briefly tell us why you are trying another browser?

  • I can’t easily search Google

  • I can’t access my Google Docs

  • I don’t have my favorites or passwords here

  • Too many ads and pop-ups

  • I don’t like the news feed

  • It’s too slow

  • My websites are not working Microsoft edge

  • My reason is not listed

I wish there was an “Other” button on this survey. If you ask me, I prefer Google Chrome simply because I’m used to it.

Accordingly Windows Central, the survey is probably in the testing phase as some can see it but others cannot. I can see it when I try to download Google Chrome, but interestingly this survey doesn’t appear when I try to download other browser installers including Firefox and Brave.

Although the survey is a bit annoying (Edge users struggle with enough “Choose me instead!” content from the Microsoft browser), it doesn’t stop users from downloading Chrome.
