New Tab Page hijacking, forced advertising

Occasional Visitor

Edge has recently started switching off my preferred New Tab page extension and replacing it with its own New Tab page. Worse yet, the default New Tab page doesn't even respect my saved settings like not showing me any sponsored links.


This is precisely the kind of behavior that landed Microsoft in an antitrust suit in the '90s.


If this continues, I'll not only be uninstalling Edge from all my devices (I'm a Mac user), I'll be filing a complaint with the FTC.
