Wow that took me back aways, I had to double-check if it was Netscape Navigator or IE 1, man those were the days!

Netscape was my first browser back in the 90s. Nowadays, I really really want to use Firefox. But keep getting pulled back in to using Chrome on the desktop (Chrome is just faster)
However, on the mobile, I use Firefox. Even used Firefox Focus for a while.
I'm super integrated into the Apple ecosystem, so Safari is pretty much my go-to.
However, I really like the features Firefox and Chrome bring in their own ways, from plugin support to other stuff.
I think my first was Internet Explorer haha.
I'm pretty sure Mosaic was my first, although it may have been Lynx. Prior to all of that I was a heavy gopher user. My first browser I used as a developer was Netscape Navigator Gold. As for Chrome, I use it mainly out of habit. It's quite possible that other browsers would be better for development, but I don't want to retrain.
The first browser I can distinctly remember using was the one built into AOL, which I just learned was initially called AOL Browser and later changed to AOL Explorer.
Netscape Navigator was definitely the browser I was using when I got really into the internet. Then, I think I used a mix of Firefox and Safari for several years before fully switching to Chrome around 2011.
I've been using Brave for about 6 months...it was an easy transition because it's built on Chromium. I like it, though it hasn't felt like a game-changer in any way.
Safari is mostly fine (on occasion, a site is broken), and it syncs bookmarks etc. with iOS. But I use Chrome for Development, because of the dev tools.
I started using Netscape Navigator in the mid-90s, who knows what version number.
Today I'm using Firefox as my main browser, having recently switched back after a decade or so on Chrome. Still using Chrome for work.

Do you open Inspect in Chrome or Inspect Element on Safari often—and if so, what are your favorite reasons to use it? Do you check how others pulled off a design, or use it to get around broken thi...
