Paul mentioned in a podcast the other day that he had switched to FIrefox but switched back to Chrome because he still used Chrome some and didn’t like using 2 browsers.
I then realized that I probably use at least 3 different browsers everyday and some times even 4. I use Edge and Opera everyday at home and use either Edge, Chrome, or Firefox at work depending on where I’m at and what I’m doing.
Part of the reason I do this is because some of the computers I’m using have some pretty specialized configurations that Chrome has problems working on and the same can be said for Firefox to a lesser degree as well. Maybe I’m unique in that and wanted to see if others use multiple browsers on a daily basis also.
<p>I try to keep my life simple. I just use one, Chrome. </p><p>Why? All my important information (passwords, bookmarks, autofills, etc…) are in Chrome and not anywhere else.</p><p>I downloaded Firefox to test see if I can experience the speed difference between it and Chrome. My conclusion, is NO. There is no big difference between Chrome and Firefox in the speed department at all. LOL…maybe there is (technically), but not so, in a way that my mind was blown out of the water. As for CPU usage, honestly? I know Chrome has been tested to be really bad in that department, but…..I don't feel it. My whole system runs free, clean, and fast. The other day, I posted on the forums here how I just use Windows Defender (or Security "whatever")…again, no problems. </p><p>Bottomline, if anyone wants a faster browser experience, upgrade your internet service. </p><p>As for people who need to have different browsers because of your system configuration…….Why? Why do you have to mess with your system that much, to the point that it effected your browser? It kinda reminds me of a time, when a friend of mine was so "Security Conscious" of his Home Wifi Network that he configured his router to the safest and strictest standards that he could. LOL…next thing he knew, he noticed a drastic performance hit when he played his FIFA online with his PS3. </p><p>Just keep things simple, that's all I say. That's not to say, "Don't use Firefox." If you are going to use Firefox, then just use that and nothing else. Keep it simple!</p>

<p>same as OP, 3 or 4. PaleMoon, Chromium, Brave and sometimes FireFox. </p><p>wait 5 – sometimes Edge pops up.</p><p><br></p>
