Edging Closer to Using Microsoft’s Web Browser (Premium)


One of the things I intended to do during my three-week home swap was spend time with several different alternative web browsers. So I loaded up my PCs with Brave, Opera, and Vivaldi, in addition to Edge, Chrome, and Firefox, with the intention of seeing how each compared.

In the course of configuring each of these browsers, I did what I could---the capabilities vary by browser---to import my master list of bookmarks, and where possible, passwords into each. The browsers are obviously similar in many respects. But each also offers some unique user experiences that triggered a rethinking about how I use PC-based web browsers.
