Nothing says "have fun" like criticizing someone's choices. Slack is used planet-wide. People can't just choose not to use such a tool if their employer uses it. And as for VS Code? I can't imagine why you're throwing shade on someone's choice of editor.

Also, in case it wasn't obvious: @laurieontech is a professional software developer with a ton of experience, and works for Netflix - I really don't see the point of explaining how to choose a browser.

I didn’t mean to criticize here. It’s just my view of things. I have to work with a lot of software I don’t like but that’s the way it is sometimes.

I didn’t know she was working for Netflix. Thanks for mentioning that. But that does not change the fact that Google Chrome still is not very optimized for macOS and uses a ton of resources and energy while running. Other browsers are much better here. Imho

And as a software dev she might know maybe not. I don’t know everything.
