Chrome and Safari in perfect harmony

I had an idea that I wouldn’t install Google’s Chrome browser on the workstation. The idea was to stick with Safari for as long as I could, to keep the install clean.

Two things made me install Chrome:

  1. I needed an alternative browser for work.
  2. I missed my Chrome Web Apps.

Number 2 made me install Chrome this morning, and a few hours later I have found harmony in the two browsers. It’s really quite simple.

Chrome is for work. (Gmail, Docs, Reader, research, inspecting code and so on.)

Safari is for consuming. (Browse the web. Period.)

Both are open on my desktop right now, and I think this will work out great.
