Big Brother Windows 10 Now Blocking Non-MS Browsers By Default After 'Change Notice'

Microsoft thought of the children and decided to ban some browsers

[excerpted] Microsoft has updated its family filters to block some rival browsers and says it's done so to think of the children.

...Microsoft's not named the browsers kids won't be able to run any more, saying only that "Most commonly used browsers don't have web filtering. To keep your children safer, we'll automatically block these browsers on their devices."

Microsoft previously recommended parents make the Internet even more miserable by blocking the world's most popular browser and grounding their kids to Redmond's IE and Edge offerings.

Now the punishment is automatic, Microsoft says in a change notice. The ban's not irrevocable: parents willing to confront Windows' Family settings can whitelist browsers other than Redmonds'.

A handful of family filter bypasses of questionable effectiveness have surfaced in previous months, but all appear to have been crushed by Redmond's latest update.

Compare: Windows 10 "The Service" 1st-Anniversary Update 8-2-16: Cortana Gets Tentacles, No Off Switch -- Spirit Guides For All 7-31-16 "Mandatory update leaving no right of refusal to "personal assistant" Cortana. Definitely a cause for concern for W10 users. Only one year out of the box and "Windows 10 the service" is now 'dictating' to users how it's going to be. Something of an omen is it not for future "service" updates in the coming years....Have windows 10? Saying it that way does not seem to be an accurate way to look at it anymore. More like Windows 10 has you. Be very much aware...[see post]

Talking, singing, joking, listening computers...that also bio-identify, and, says the promo video [:18], "every screen is meant to be touched", almost as if the intent of all this computer-befriending was to make the child 'one with the computer' - so to speak. Talking, touching, being 'Cortana-assisted' - the whole thing sounds very much like a "spirit-guide" experience actually. That of course is not a good thing. And note especially the statement at 30 seconds - here paraphrased: 'as they grow...the technology will 'get better' too'. No doubt this is true, and no doubt the 'better technology' is all planned out already, for the end goal of such things as these can be nothing less than to own them, 666-style..." [see post, video]
Windows 10 wants the undivided attention of it's users apparently. Something to keep in mind too - it's still only one year into W10 - and the tentacles are already starting to really stretch out. Not a good sign.
