🚀Introduction

GoAwayEdge is designed for those who, like me, aren’t fans of Microsoft Edge. If you find yourself constantly annoyed by Edge popping up unexpectedly, fear not! This clever utility redirects all Edge-related calls to your preferred browser, ensuring a seamless browsing experience.

Here are some key points about GoAwayEdge:

  • Purpose: The primary purpose of GoAwayEdge is to intercept any requests or actions that would normally trigger Microsoft Edge and reroute them to your favorite browser instead.
  • How It Works: GoAwayEdge interrupts the Edge process from launching by hooking via Image File Execution Options. It then reads the arguments, parses them and redirects them to your default browser.
  • Compatibility: It works on Windows 10 / 11 systems and provides a simple solution for those who want to avoid Edge altogether.

Feel free to explore the code, contribute, or simply enjoy a browser experience free from unexpected Edge encounters! 🚀
