For Windows Insiders in the Skip Ahead ring, we will begin testing a change where links clicked on within the Windows Mail app will open in Microsoft Edge, which provides the best, most secure and consistent experience on Windows 10 and across your devices. With built-in features for reading, note-taking, Cortana integration, and easy access to services such as SharePoint and OneDrive, Microsoft Edge enables you to be more productive, organized and creative without sacrificing your battery life or security.
I’m one of those weird people who actually really like the default Windows 10 Mail application, but if this absolutely desperate, user-hostile move – which ignores any default browser setting – makes it into any definitive Windows 10 release, I won’t be able to use it anymore.
As always, we look forward to feedback from our WIP community.
Oh you’ll get something to look forward to alright.
