In all fairness, some people have security concerns about using any browser on a server. I get that.

There are situations and environments, where you may have apprentices, or non IT literate staff who are the IT staff; I’ve been involved with a lot of places where they don’t have anyone in an official IT capacity and the highest qualified person is the one who can change the lockscreen on their phone – ¬†where you shouldn’t do this and in fact, should lock it all down as much as you can.
