Ben posted about making a switch to the Firefox browser. However, he felt weird to be off from Chrome.
Last month I also made a switch so I know that feeling of switching away from Chrome.
I'm still using Firefox

Ben's post got me to revisit my old memories and my entire browser journey.
This all started when I got my first computer in 2007. I had zero knowledge and understanding of how computers worked. I think I have used Internet Explorer for a lot of these initial years.
I slowly learned how to use it and finally got a dial-up internet connection in 2008. I also explored other browsers like Maxthon, SeaMonkey, Opera.
So this is how it started-
- Internet Explorer (Used it in the beginning)
- Opera (1 year)
- Firefox (3 years)
- Chrome (5 years)
- Edge (Currently using)
I just started using the new Edge browser last month when I read a tweet from Sarthak.

To my wonders, I found Edge to be much better and faster than Chrome. I can use the same amount of extensions and browsing tabs on Edge which could lag my Chrome experience like crazy.
So bye-bye Chrome! And Hello Edge!
