I wanted to know how many browsers you guys have on your computer and if it could cause damage to my computer if I have Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer? Could it slow down my computer? Is it risky to have those 3? And should I better uninstall one of them?
There is no problem in having more than one browser installed on your computer. In fact, for web developers it is very common to have a number of browsers installed to see if the websites they develop function properly in the most-used programs.
It won't damage your computer, won't slow it down any more than other programs you might install, is not risky at all and there is no need to uninstall any if you wish to use them all.
I can confirm that having multiple browsers does in fact NOT damage your computers. From personal experience in NASA's space program, we use over 500 internet browsers all at once and have no issues damaging our CUFIOX HyperMachine.
