I was using a TI 99/4A with expansion box. Good times.

I switched company's in the mid 90's - my first day on the job, my new boss handed me a large box of computer parts, an empty PC chassis and a bunch of diskettes with the OS, drivers, & application software we would be running. Knowing that I was a veteran - he said "This is your M1 in the Information Systems War. You will know how to field strip and put it back together in the dark. I expect it to be fully operational before you go home this afternoon" We used OS/2 as the OS and yes we got it to work very well.

The company chose to go the Windows route for all departments a few years later (a wise choice as it turned out) using IE as the browser. I retired from that company 5 years ago and I extracted myself from all windows devices. It's macOS & iOS across the board on my computers, tablets, & phones using Safari and I have not had to reinstall the OS on any devices to clean them up or fix one since.

I have been away from the Windows platform for the past 5 years, however, I would think IE should provide the best integration, but cannot speak to the level of expertise required and/or complexity presented to the end-user with the current OS version. I did some work with Firefox on both Windows & Mac platforms finding it to work ok based on the rather rudimentary tasks I gave it; however, being more familiar with IE & Safari continued with those tools on the respective platforms.

I am not a fan of Goggle products since their inception based on design but understand their Chrome browser product is getting better in the privacy options.

Anything But Chrome.

All browsers suck - FireFox is in a race to the bottom with Chrome as to who can decontent and cripple the fastest - and rack up meaningless version numbers. Edge is pretty decent. Safari is buggy.

At the moment, I still use FireFox. I cuss at it, but I use it.
