“Which browser do you use?
After the past twenty years of “browser wars,” this is a loaded question intended to stuff individuals into neat little cubbyholes:
- Is your customer platform-loyal?
- Is your coworker appropriately concerned about security?
- Is your Grandma’s browser unable to handle the video element or is it time to take her to the Optometrist again?
There are plenty of reasons (good and bad) to ask the question. However, drawing a useful conclusion from answers is tricky. They can be based on anecdotal information, outdated experiences, or personal bias.
