What is The Agile Fractional?
After much reflection and learning, I've decided to evolve my previous newsletter, "Journey of a Non-Tech to Tech," into something that encompasses a broader range of topics and speaks more directly to the challenges and opportunities faced by today's agile professionals.
While my journey from the non-tech world to the tech and web3 space remains an essential part of my story, "The Agile Fractional" will expand upon these experiences to cover topics that cater to the unique needs of fractional workers, freelancers, and startups. I will explore areas such as productivity hacks, operations management, data storytelling tools, team collaboration, entrepreneurship, and more.
Freelancer vs Fractional
I'm not a fan of the term 'freelancer,' but I'm unsure how to use the fractional. When deciding on the newsletter's content, I started a discussion with ChatGPT to explore possibilities. After seeing this comparison, I was convinced to move forward with fractional:

In this article, I'll start by sharing my recent experience with web browsers. For many years, I used Chrome as my main web browser. But things have changed in the last year. Brave caught my attention for being crypto-friendly and providing a more secure internet experience. Recently, I found myself downloading two different browsers:
The first one is Arc browser. Its simple design and slick UI made a difference immediately. As someone who has opened different windows for different accounts for years, it became my default browser in just one week, allowing me to navigate between accounts within one window.
The second one is Microsoft Edge. ChatGPT has become a part of my daily life, but sometimes it's not accessible, so I decided to try Bing Chat for a different experience and as a backup. I installed Edge. However, the design and UI didn't impress me much. Typical Microsoft
I think I'll continue with Arc for a while. It will be an even better experience when I get used to its keyboard shortcuts. By the way, I have invitation codes. Let me know if you want to try it out.
