Google browser hijacked by Microsoft
As of yesterday, Microsoft has hijacked my downloaded Google browser on my 7 month old Surface Pro X - it had to be done in the latest update. As soon as I try to open it, the REAL Google screen shows up for .5 of a second, then I am auto redirected to “gooogle.com” (one too many “o’s) (a VERY BAD FAKE looking Google) then quickly to Bing, if you type in anything to search. Is this even legal? It’s my computer, no matter who makes it, and I should be able to use whatever browser I want. Sounds like a class-action lawsuit, similar to the one against Apple when they were using new Updates to slow the older phone models down so people would buy new ones. I am also greatly offended that they would actually think I wouldn’t notice! Do you SEE my email address? I feel violated in the strangest way.
