Only using my Phone if I really have to and have no other option.

I got rid of my phone a decade ago.

I use my laptop with wired mouse, track pad is disabled. It's more like a small desktop, always plugged in gaming laptop with 144hz ips screen and nice keyboard, I never move it. It's usually charging controllers. Great for browsing with SSD and 16 GB ram. I always have dozens of tabs open, 12 GB ram in use lol.

Same way I feel like desktop over laptops. Sure you can hookup a mouse but most people don't with laptops. All I have to say is fuck that tiny keyboard and fuck trackpads and balls or whatever fuck they are

I have no issue at all with the keyboard, but yeah the trackpads are mostly garbage.

But even a €10 bluetooth mouse is enough. Works on my couch, my bed and even my clothes, so no need for a table or other flat surface.



I still do a lot of stuff on my desktop PC.

Phones just aren't same but really nice when away from home.

eh, I'd say laptops are actually worse for browsing the internet, assuming it's one of those crappy ones with no mouse at least. Now an actual PC, that's where you should be browsing the internet. It's been the best place to do since the internet first began and will continue to be the best place until the internet no longer exists.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Using the web with a phone is a huge pain, starting with a terrible writing experience. I didn't like writing with a phone even before touchscreens (when it used to be kind of OK but still slow compared to a keyboard), but touchscreens have made it just horrible. The experience isn't too great even otherwise. Mobile browsing is my backup strategy for when I really need/want to know something and using a computer would be quite inconvenient (e.g. because one is not available). That said, laptops aren't that great either due to touchpad and small screen, but still better than a phone.



I browse primarily on Console, and used Vita up until late last year when I was away from home.

Now I use iPhone when I am out, since the Vita web browser is completely broken.

I only browse on the PC in the rare occasion that I can’t get something working on the PS4 or Xbox.

To be clear, I have keyboards for my consoles, which makes the browsing experience great. If I didn’t have a keyboard on the consoles, it would not be a great experience.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

You reminded me of 2011-12I used to browse with old laptops hooked up behind my TV connected with HDMI, that was the best I ever had wlth a wireless K&M on a 50 inch. I think I may use my FF14 keyboard with the built in trackpad and try the PSN browser and see if you are correct.

I've become extremely competent with trackpads over the years and adjusting the sensitivity can make for absolute smooth and speedy use. I had like two years or so to adjust but I'm pretty much as proficient now as with mouse. What gets me is the right and left click buttons as they never have felt natural and the lack of a scroll mouse but the two tap scrolling I found out about just recently makes up for it and chrome OS has double tap funtions now with no need to use the physical buttons/
