Just curious, do you use the Embedded Browers within TheBrain (Desktop)?

Don't use the embedded browser in the desktop brain.

Would also strongly prefer not using it in the web client.

I use it. 
It allows me to view a web page almost instantly without drawing my attention away from TheBrain. I can even create new thoughts and new links from the page that is being displayed in the embedded browser. Also, there's often a relevant image on the web page that is readily viewable so I don't have to add a separate image attachment to the thought.

I have quite a few links to Wikipedia articles and I usually have a link to the mobile version (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki) which displays a nicer version of the article in a small browser window. I've even changed Web Search to use the Wikipedia mobile address.

If I want to view a URL link in my browser (and there many reasons for doing this), I double-click on the link.

Basically the same as Cerebrum. I use it a lot, primarily for viewing content, not interacting with it (like articles, blogs and informational, not web apps or ordering)

I use it a lot.  One very common use case for me is working with my CRM, Cloze.  All business contacts in The Brain have a link to their "page" in Cloze.  When I activate their thought in The Brain, the web page shows almost instantaneously.  I can use that to review their history and interact with them right inside The Brain.  I have removed all notes from their thought and put those notes in their Cloze record.  That way, the web page automatically shows in the notes section instead of any notes.  I would love the ability to have the attached web page take priority over the notes page.  But, for now, it works by just keeping the notes empty.

I use it just to view a page of content. If I want to interact, I'll open it in the system default browser (usually Chrome). The built-in browser doesn't have the facilities I'm used to for interaction and session browsing.

It would be very cool if TB9 could embed a system default browser window...

Work brain, like tomcal123, I have tickets linked to thoughts. Instead of switching I can just go into the window, maybe max it.

Personal brain, less so. It's not really a web-leaning brain, although it has a lot of URLs in it. I use the embedded browser in that case to see if this is what I wanted or needed, often opening pages in my external browser.
