Every day, I open these four application:
- IE (our corporate browser standard)
- Skype (formerly Lync)
In addition, I might keep Chrome open periodically. Except for Chrome, I don't close these until I shutdown my workstation at the end of the business day.
Unlike some people, I don't keep a lot of windows and applications open, but I live in these applications. My workstation has to be able to handle all the development and office tools (e.g. Word, Excel) that I use throughout the day as well as these four applications which I use pretty much consistently.
Which applications do you live in?
