    Default What Do You Use Web Browsers For?

    It's obvious that people use web browsers to browse the internet. However, I've found that I use my web browser less and less as time goes on. I read articles in Pocket, get news in Press, use Tapatalk for forums, and dedicated apps for certain mobile sites like Wikipedia and IMDB. The only reason why I even open my web browser anymore is if I open a link in a Google search. So what do you use your web browser for? Does your web browser matter to you? What browser do you use?

    It can still be helpful for me. I like checking daily deal sites like 1sale.com, DailySteals.com, and woot.com. Some of these sites have apps, but I don't want to clutter my devices up with too many apps that I don't consider essential, so I still access those sites on the web. I also find the NYTimes mobile site pretty good, so I don't feel that the app is necessary (although I also read it on Google Play Newsstand).

    Generally if I don't have routine need of an app, I'll use its web counterpart if it's functional. For example, I just use my browser to book flights and hotels, or check merchant sites. I often prefer that to having apps eating up storage, memory, and visual space that I only use meaningfully once every couple months or more.

    I don't. I use my desktop for most web activity and my laptop if I'm away from home. I'm not that needy of the web that I can't miss a few hours.
