Since its debut, Chrome has grown in popularity, though its once-stellar reputation has taken a bit of a hit as of late. Examples of Chrome-only sites are more and more common, reminiscent of the days when Microsoft's Internet Explorer dominated the web browser market. It's been shown to be a massive memory hog as well, slowing down machines as users create more and more tabs.

Last year, I spent a chunk of time playing around with different browsers. Microsoft Edge, much to much dismay, got a run for a couple of weeks. I mucked around with the early days of the Firefox Quantum beta. And then, just like everyone else, I went back to Chrome.

I'm not a big fan of browsing the web on my phone, mainly due to my browser's terrible control scheme. Everything is too spaced out. The keyboard's at the bottom of the vertically oriented display, essential controls are tucked into hard to reach corners, and I don't want to risk dropping my phone by performing a little one-handed gymnastics for a new tab.
You hate it as much as I do: that little box that appears whenever you visit a news site or blog, asking for permission to bug you with notification boxes for stuff you don't care about.

If you're not taking screenshots of your computer screen much, remembering which key combos to hit might be more confusing than convenient. If you hate keyboard shortcuts, Mozilla's new Firefox Quantum browser makes it incredibly easy to capture what's on your screen thanks to its built in Firefox Screenshots service. It syncs wherever you use the new browser, and is smart enough to help you figure out what you're actually trying to capture.
