"Switch to Microsoft Edge for 32% more browsing time."

Is this really a thing?

A marketing scheme? Yes.

Besides the CMOS, my computer doesn't even have a battery. You should just keep it plugged in and use Chrome.

Paid a local tech shop $40 to put a new battery in my iphone 5 a few days ago. It's like a brand new phone now! I can easily ride this one out until they release iphone 8.

I wasn't sure if that graphic was necessary or not. Your public appreciation for it lets me know that I made the right choice.

I always use safari on my iPhone because I think it's more compatible with my other apps and Siri and whatnot. Should I switch to Chrome though?

Safari is made purely for Apple, whereas Chrome spreads itself provocatively over multiple operating systems - this can have it's caveats.

From my point of view, Safari has a much nicer interface. The only thing Chrome does better is Voice input.

Also even with Chrome installed, when you tap a link in an email - it will always default to open in Safari. Apple's little way of not fully letting you move away from Safari.

This is exactly why I've stuck with Safari thus far.
