Randomly rotating your browser usage is such a good idea! I find that I often have to "force" myself out of my comfortable box with things like that, so rotating what you use randomly sounds like a great way to normalize that experience.

same! It takes some getting used to. I've been using Firefox and going back to Chrome isn't entirely comfortable. Going to Edge wasn't comfortable either but it's not a huge leap

for me, using different browsers for home and work helps a little bit. but randomly rotating browsers I'd probably spend at least an hour just importing my bookmarks, installing extensions and reentering credentials for every website I visit

That's very true, even on a personal level I've noticed that in my slow migration from Chrome to Firefox. I imported everything I could, but I still have to re-enter credentials on most sites, which is kind of a pain! I'm doing them as I go along, wish I didn't have to though.
