Anyone staying on top of their Windows updates may have noticed a few notifications over the last couple of months, particularly if they're using Google Chrome.
Microsoft is trying its damnedest to sell us its rival web browser, Microsoft Edge, and has decided the best way to do so is by repeatedly telling us that our current browser is rubbish.
The pop-up ad appears in Windows 10's Action Centre, popping into existence whenever you open Google Chrome (or at least, the first few times after the update). The notification says that, 'Chrome is draining your battery faster' and encourages you to switch to Microsoft Edge for longer usage times.
You can turn these notifications off. Just head to Settings, then System, then click Notifications & Actions from the side bar on the left. From there, scroll to 'Get tips, tricks and suggestions as you use Windows' and flick the switch to off. Windows should then keep its ''suggestions'' to itself.
But is Google Chrome really draining our battery? Unfortunately, yes. Chrome is one of the worst browsers for battery life, reportedly lasting three hours less than Edge - so Microsoft does have a point. It's particularly bad if you don't update Google Chrome semi-regularly.
The problem with switching to Edge is that it has a real shortage of extensions; nowhere near the range that you can have running simultaneously on Chrome. If you're not running any extensions, however, then you'll probably find Edge will run faster and as Windows reminds us, run for longer.
If you do decide to stick with Chrome, there are some things you can do to stop it draining your battery. If you're still torn, here's a great breakdown of all your browser options for Windows 10; there's bound to be one that works for you.
