Tech giant Microsoft has announced that its smart digital assistant Cortana will only use Edge and Bing results in its search box. This means that other search engine and browsers like Firefox, Opera, Yahoo and Google will be completely restricted on Cortana.
In a statement posted on the company's official blog, Microsoft general manager of search marketing Ryan Gavin declared, "To ensure we can deliver the integrated search experience designed for Windows 10, Microsoft Edge will be the only browser that will launch when you search from the Cortana box."

The Cortana search box, which is located at the lower left portion of the Windows 10 desktop, will now rely solely on Microsoft's flagship search engine, Bing.
Gavin defended the latest restrictions imposed by Microsoft saying that some third-party software have the ability to circumvent the design of Windows 10 and redirect users to search engines that are not fully compatible with Cortana. This incompatibility, Gavin added, could seriously affect user experience and the reliability of its products.
The latest changes imposed by Microsoft will not affect the basic functionality of third-party Internet browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera, Gavin promised.
Many tech analysts agree that Microsoft's latest rule will broaden the coverage of Edge, as well as boost the revenue generated from increased usage of Bing.
