Browser Battle 2014

Most of my life is now spent inside of a browser.  No seriously. Between work, blogging and surfing the web, I spend no less than 10-15 hours in front of some sort of screen and for the most part, this involves having a web browser open and doing something with the wonders of the Interwebz.…
