In the PhilMUG meet last night, one of the topics I discussed with fellow geeks is the use of multiple browsers. I personally use more than one browser at a time. In my MacBook, I use Safari, FireFox and Camino. Most of the time the three browsers are open simultaneusly.So the question remains: Why use multiple browsers when one browser should be enough to serve the purpose of surfing the /net?
Online Banking: There are still banks out there that does not support open web standards. These online banking sites insists that their clients use Internet Explorer.I'm sure there are other reasons why some 'net surfers insist on using more than one browser. For me, my normal surfing browser is Safari -- I love its RSS aggregation feature. My blogging browser is FireFox because blogger and wordpress seems easier to use with it and my default browser is Camino.
Blogging: IMHO, the best browser for bloggers is Flock. Its built-in blogging feature is a godsend -- making it easy to update blogs.
Cookies: There are sites where users does not want to be automatically logged on. In instances like these, its better to store cookies from this sites on non-default browsers.
