After several weeks of customer protest, Microsoft decided that their plan to automatically install a Microsoft Search in Bing extension for Chrome browsers with Office ProPlus wouldn't fly. While it's good that Microsoft is tweaking their plans and will allow Office 365 tenants to opt-in, the way they went about announcing such an outrageous decision begs the question just how Microsoft thought this was ever a good idea.
