Hi Group,

I have no issues with Chrome or Edge as a default browser other than my laziness.  That is to say, I like old fashion drop down menus (alt + F for file, alt + V for view and so on.)  I know how to use the single alt + key menu and HTML interface in Edge and Chrome, I'm just too lazy to get used to it as long as there is an old fashion option like Firefox.

As far as accessibility is concerned, Firefox and all Chrome-based browsers support browse mode and you are using the same screen-reader interface in all these browsers.  I am not saying that every form on every site will render the same way in a Chrome-based browser or not.  I haven't found any difference in general between using Chrome and Firefox browsers in working with forms.  Nor have I found any differences that matter regarding accessibility.

You should have at least one Chrome and one nonChrome based browser because a browser like Firefox, which is not Chrome-based may render this or that site better.  The reverse may also be true. 

I use history more than a lot of people and I much prefer Firefox's implementation of history.  I also use Firefox Portable which I think has advantages over installed versions of browsers which I won't go into here.

I can't say that I hate Chromium-based browsers, but the two that are my daily drivers are Vivaldi and Brave.  Both are privacy focused by design and also have built-in ad-blocking and other security features.  While those can sometimes prove problematic (whether you're using a screen reader or not) with some sites, I just punt to an "unprotected browser" (usually Edge or my semi-protected Firefox) when the occasion dictates.

I touch Chrome almost never and do use Edge Dev Channel somewhat consistently.  Doing what I do I have to keep a finger on the pulse of Edge, since that's what most people who don't download alternatives and need a web browser are now using, just like they did with IE way back when.  It's the default under Windows for the "less technologically sophisticated."
