Google Chrome

you don't have to like it, but you have to use it.

I have tried for more than a decade to avoid using Google products - I don't like their business model & tracking of everyone.

But in (Tech) Sales, I've gotten to using Chrome a lot, a few years ago - mainly because of the ecosystem of extensions that are available, and enable to automate easily a lot of tasks.

My main browser remains Brave Brave though I also use Safari, Firefox, and Edge. All for different purposes - and to seggregate the tracking a bit.

Using different profiles

22 Mar 2023

I recently only started using different Google Chrome profiles and it has helped my workflows a lot.

I have 3 profiles now, hence always 3 Google Chrome windows open, each with its different colour, so I can easily see which one is which.

  • my own professional Google profile (Devyer Ventures)
  • my Client's Google profile (ie the company I work for)
  • my personal Google profile


Each profile has its own bookmarks, extensions, etc.

As I run custom Chrome extensions, it's also nice to separate by activity.

And switching between Chrome profile windows is the generic macOS `Cmd + `` (Command + backtick) keyboard shortcut.
