Microsoft has had it in for Google Chrome for some time now.
However, it’s latest move might be the boldest yet at trying to convince users to ditch Google’s popular web browser.
As part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft has started showing users notifications which tells them that Google Chrome is draining their laptop battery and, get this, that they should switch to Microsoft’s Edge browser in order to save up to 36 percent battery life.
Microsoft told tech site The Verge that the notifications are only meant to be “tips” in order to help users “enhance their Windows 10 experience”.
Microsoft added that the notifications can be turned off at any time, should users not wish to receive tips on improving their battery life.
Last month, Microsoft released a video in which the company claimed its Edge browser outperformed Google Chrome by 70 percent in a battery test.
Last week, Microsoft started rolling out its new blockbuster Anniversary Update for Windows 10.
As part of the update, Edge received a number of new features including the introduction of extensions to the web browser for the first time.
The extensions, which are similar to the ones found in Google Chrome are available from the likes of Save Pocket, LastPass and Office.
The new update also brings an option for Edge users to automatically delete their web history.
