Doing a software inventory of what tools I use in order to migrate to a new work computer. I make a private blog post of what software, extensions, and customizations to facilitate the move. Work provides software, but I prefer different web browsers, text editors, SSH clients, etc.
I have posts from 2009, 2011, and now 2016. Comparing the three lists, some of my preferences have stayed the same over time. Some I changed each time.
- Web browsers
- Ad blocker
- Password manager
- Chat client
- Read later
- SQL editor
- PDF reader
I kind of wish I had tracked my most visited web sites in this way. I used to keep a web page with a bookmark to places I frequently visit. An occasional dump of the most important could be interesting for determine how my work and interests evolve over time.
