Rarely. 99% of the time I use Chrome, but will switch to Edge when I need to not be signed in to something. (Chrome keeps all my passwords and logins, Edge I never save anything. There are times when I need to be logged into two different accounts simultaneously, and so using two browsers is helpful). I do have FF installed and had to use it just last week when I got a bug report for one of my public sites. Turns out FF doesn't handle javascript: protocol in links the way that everybody else does; it executes the code then displays any object resulting from that code, normally [Object object], as the entire content of the page. Don't know who's doing it wrong, FF or the rest of the world, but it was a quick fix so don't care.

Not keen on Edge when I've used it, but that's possibly because I've never bothered spending time configuring it how I like - don't even know if it can be done. I work on a laptop screen 100% of the time so its default big blocky URL bar and tabs just waste space for me. Its debug tools aren't what I'm used to so are slower for me to use. Just inertia, really.

And that's basically the reason I don't often change browsers!
