Chrome is nice. If you're trying to debug communications from your system to a web browser the developer tools are handy for that. If you're trying to watch 4K streaming video Microsoft's Edge browser is still best for that. Microsoft has done something to optimize that. Chrome is known to drop frames.

Subject: [PCTECH] Switched from FF to Chrome

The import bookmarks from FF doesn't work. There is a way to export your
FF bookmarks to a html file and import that html file which worked for me.

some long urls I use and I can type faster than drilling down through
bookmarks. I have a coworker and I swear if should had a click pad for
every letter of the alphabet should would mouse everything. And she used
to be one of those "take my 3180 terminal??? from my cold dead hands..."
type of people.
Thought about IE but I'm still on Windows 7 Professional using IE11
(they're spinning me up a new PC as I type). IE doesn't play well with
IBM Navigator for i. Downright hideous. And IBM does not list IE as a
supported browser for Nav.
