I run three web browsers, Firefox, Edge and Opera.

Firefox is my main browser and used for most things.

Edge is what I use to stream my football and baseball games. The home page is set to the streaming pages for each sport, each in a separate tab.

Opera is for if I want to stream cable when the cable box is out (fairly often) with the cable streaming page as home page.

All three browsers are pinned to my Taskbar. Does this make sense or am I just weird? :mrgreen: Well we know I'm weird but... ;)

Of course you are weird. I use Chrome and Edge usually, but also have IE, Firefox, Chrome beta, and the Edge Canary and Developer betas installed. :-)

Currently I only have Firefox and Edge on my PC. When I first upgraded to Windows 10 and used Sandboxie together Chrome had launching issues. I do miss Chrome because of it's casting ability. I may try downloading it again because it's been awhile. I thought Opera was going away.

I haven't heard anything about Opera going away. If it does I'll probably just switch my cable streaming to Vivaldi.

I guess I am the weird one. I use only one browser, Vivaldi. It serves all my purposes and I really like it.

Not weird at all BB and you are probably in the majority as to using just one browser. I just like my setup of using different browsers for different purposes. I open a browser for the purpose I want and it is automatically already there.

At present I use 2 browsers on a regular basis on this laptop Edge and Chrome, I do have IE and Opera on here as well but haven't used them in a long time. I think I have Firefox installed on my desktop but mainly use Edge on there.

On this laptop Chrome is set as the default and works for most things but for the sites I visit most, like here and a few others, I bring up Edge and have them on my top sites list so I can just click on the one I want to go to.

I don't know if it's still the same but when I first started using Chrome one of the games I play at Facebook didn't play smoothly and any actions on my part were slow to respond and very erratic movements whereas they worked perfectly fine in Edge.
