S Setup

I’ve spent at least 1,000 hours of my life using Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. That is 1,000 hours each, separately. I think it’s about time that I discuss how and why I use these browsers. Firefox Analysis Right now, I spend 50 percent of my time on Firefox, 50 percent of my time on Safari. This is a rough estimate, since I use Firefox to watch videos and scrape the Internet and Safari for non-work related activities, like checking email.

System Preferences I will need to connect my local computer to a power outlet all the time: go to System Preferences > Energy Saver > Never Sleep.
