To OP: I know it is a bit offtopic but I have always wondered why many people install so many web browsers at once on their computers. I run a small IT repair shop and I have seen several PCs with 5 or more web browsers installed at once (the only reason I could see for this behaviour is that you are a webpage programmer or something and you want to test your code under every browser under the sun).

 

Why not choosing your favourite one and stick to that one?

 

I mean, for w10, MS Edge is fine (Ublock Origin is available for it too, btw), Firefox is fine, Chrome is fine.

 

Then I would choose just ONE and uninstall the other (redundant) ones. Because every web browser out there does the same job (no matter if it's one or the other). It's just personal preference.

 

Just my two cents.

Some websites used by government, business and organizations require the use of Internet Explorer so some folks will need to use a least two web browsers.

I mostly meant the triad Edge+FF+Chrome. I know some sites (most of the time "official" sites, such as goverment ones and such aren't updated and rely on using old deprecated web browsers), but for regular Internet browsing, there is little difference among using Edge, FF or Chrome.

It's those "little differences" that propel me to using Firefox and Chrome.   I haven't touched IE in years, except when absolutely necessary, and Edge is only used by me when I need what I dub "a naked browser" (one with no add-ons/extensions) that could possibly be causing interference when I encounter a burp on either Firefox or Chrome.

 

I agree that having 5 or 6 browsers installed is a bit much unless you are someone who's testing web coding and wants to ensure maximum compatibility.  Lets face it, the browsers that are not Firefox or Chrome are almost all based on one or the other, with tweaking to suit those "purpose developing" or "feature developing" them.

You are right, Brian.
