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
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
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."
