My default apps at the end of 2023

I stumbled upon this by reading Kevโ€™s great blog but it seems there are a bunch of people currently sharing their default apps.

For me, always looking for a new app to improve my workflow, this is great. However, I had to notice that many people - like myself - stick with the default apps of their operating system. But, I will scroll through all other contributions to check if there is something to try out for me.

I wonโ€™t let you wait any longer - here is my list:
