For instance, on my phone, I have three browsers:
- Default set to Firefox.
- Firefox Focus, pinned on right bottom for quick access.
- Google Chrome, pinned on left bottom for quick access
In the January, I tweeted about 'How I use multiple Google Chrome profiles?'
But for past couple of months, I have started using multiple browsers along with multiple Chrome profiles.
Interested in watching the video version of this note.
I have upload the vlog on YouTube here. More [verbose] info.
So as mentioned above, I use Chrome, Firefox, Firefox Focus on my phone,
here's how they fit for different purpose.
The default browser: Firefox.
This comes in situation when I am clicking links in the apps like twitter, email, chats etc.
Because those are random links thus I don't want them to be linked with my Google account, as I am logged into the Chrome, thus separate browser.
So by setting Firefox as default, I am segregating the random links I open via apps, from my Google account, which can result in Google algos recommending useless stuff, which anyways happens but still.
Temp browser: Firefox Focus
I use it for quick searches, that I don't want to be attached to my profile.
Eg: Searches like ongoing trends, news or sports highlights, this temp browser works well and these searches doesn't get attached to my interests in the Google account.
My online identity: Chrome
Here I am logged into most of my online accounts.
I open Chrome when I want to access these platforms, which are linked to my Google account.
Like Twitter, GitHub etc. are all here in Chrome.
So that is it, that's the way how I use browsers for now. Which has evolved from my last January tweet for sure.
May be more improvements coming in the future 🤷♀️
