Procrastinating is a vice when it comes to productivity, but it can be a virtue for creativity. “Adam Grant

Research shows that we can predict your job performance and your commitment just by knowing what web browser you use.

Some of you are not going to like the results of this study. There is a good evidence that Firefox and Chrome users significantly outperform Internet Explorer and Safari users.

They also stay in their jobs 15% longer.

It’s not a technical advantage. The 4 browsers on average have similar typing speed and they also have similar levels of computer knowledge.

It’s about how you get the browser. Because if you use Internet Explorer or Safari preinstalled in your computer, you accepted the default options that was handed to you.

If you wanted Firefox or Chrome, you to doubt the default and ask, if there are different options out there.

I’m not saying that if you want to get better at your job, you just need to upgrade your browser.

No, it’s about being the kind of person who takes the initiative to doubt the default and look for better options. And if you do that well, you will open yourself to the opposite of déjà-vu.
