Microsoft shuts off oxygen to Chrome and other third-party browsers in Windows 11

Published

Microsoft has taken another step to push Windows 11 users to only use the Edge web browser, whether they like it or not.

After installing the fresh Windows 11 update (Build 22494), users started reporting that the operating system no longer allows opening links related to the system to Microsoft Edge in third-party browsers.

In recent years, Microsoft has used a custom URI scheme to force links in Edge to open through native services – such as Windows 11 widgets, the Start menu, and so on. By using the “microsoft-edge:” URL prefix, a company can force the operating system to open a site in the branded browser, even if the default is different.

Until now, users could rely on the free EdgeDeflector service to counter this scheme. In addition, the third party browsers Firefox and Brave have their own built-in workarounds. However, after the recent Windows 11 update, none of these solutions have remained viable.

While Microsoft hasn’t gone so far as to force all web links to run in Edge, the move is unlikely to be popular with Windows 11 users, many of whom use third-party browsers.

WhatsApp messenger will soon have a curious feature that will allow you to make video calls using an avatar.

That is, your interlocutor during a video call will not see you, but your avatar. This is similar to how Memoji/Bitmoji works.

How exactly the avatar will look like is not yet clear, but there is a screenshot showing a button to switch to such a mode. In addition, it will be possible to send your avatars to chats in the form of stickers. The avatars themselves can be created independently in a special editor.

The function has already been found in the software code, but it is not yet available even in beta mode. There is no release date for the feature either, although it is noted that it will initially appear on Android.
