Yesterday, Microsoft announced a new version of Windows 10 designed to rival Chrome OS. During the announcement, Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group, revealed that unlike Google's offering, Windows 10 S can run third-party web browsers. But there's a catch: you can't set them as the default.
"You are able to download another browser that might be available from the Windows Store, but Microsoft Edge will remain the default if, for example, you open an .htm file. Additionally, the default search provider in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer cannot be changed," explains the company over on its FAQ page.
What this essentially means is you'll be able to use an independent browser to surf the web, but as soon as you click on a link in another application, it'll be opened using Microsoft Edge. Oh, and when you're entering a search term, you'll be forced to use Bing as Microsoft isn't giving users the facility to alter the default search provider.
When will Windows 10 S be available?
Windows 10 S will be ready in the summer, leaving plenty of time for educational facilities to prepare their equipment for the start of the new school year in the fall.
