Windows 11: Now more irritating than ever

By Avonelle Lovhaug on 9/14/2021

Apparently Mozilla has defeated Microsoft’s default browser protections in Windows. I’m sure Microsoft will respond, and it won’t be pretty. But what I found interesting is that apparently Windows 11 will make the process to set your default program even more cumbersome. Thanks, Microsoft!

I acknowledge there are legitimate security concerns, but this is also a usability issue. I haven’t heard of one new Windows 11 feature that makes me interested in it, and stories like this convince me to avoid it if possible. Yuck.
