A year later, I still prefer Arc to Chrome 👨🏻💻
Chrome keeps eating up my Mac memory I switched to Edge. Then Arc came, and I found the clean interface appealing. Been great, and I'm sticking with it.
The only issue I've had is the interference with shortcuts in apps that I use like Framer.
I use Firefox because I can’t let go of my add-ons. It’s less a relationship of love than it is a hostage situation.
I tend to stick with a solution until the pain exceeds the inertia. Even "free" software can be expensive, as you spend time configuring and learning how to do things that you used to do without thinking.
But I do changes horses in midstream. I left Adobe for Affinity, and Vegas Movie Studio for DaVinci. And a long time ago, Explorer for Chrome.
At this point, however, I so much invested in Chrome that I will need a very compelling reason to change.
I'm considering moving to Affinity. How are you liking it? Was the switchover easy or difficult?
In the "old" days, whenever my current browser updated itself to the point where it became annoying, I would switch to the next, least annoying browser. Thus I would cycle between Firefox, Chrome and "Old" Edge.
In prehistoric times, I used Opera. At some point, I stopped and never tried it again until 2022. IT's my current favorite. Like you, I keep too many tabs. I also used up all five Spaces. LOL
So, does Arc limit you to a set number of spaces?
thanks for the news. I really enjoy it
I use Safari because it benefits from lots of integration with the Apple OSs and apps. I use Arc, though, for those sites that don't render well in Safari, or where they rely on a Chrome-based browser. For example, I use AuthoredUp for my LinkedIn posts and they don't make a Safari extension.
I've been using Arc (because of this newsletter!) for a few months and I feel like the first week was really awkward adjusting to where everything was, keyboard shortcuts etc. I really like it now, but it took me a while to get used to it.
I've been keen on Arc, but I don't own a Mac. Hopefully, a full-feature Android app or Linux release will make this available for my Chromebook.
