Internet Explorer vs. Chrome: Recover Session

Working at Microsoft, I use Internet Explorer, but when I want to separate some sessions, I run Chrome at the same time. And I wanted to tell you about an experience I had last week.

Last weekend, after plugging in my Garmin heart monitor to download my bike run, my PC just rebooted (that happened more than once with this monitor). After coming back up, I was expecting that Chrome would recover my session, but not Internet Explorer (from what I recall, IE hasn't been very good at this). And guess what? Chrome did not recover one single of my tabs, while IE recovered the entire session correctly. That was clearly unexpected and a glad surprise.

In the end, I had to go over Chrome's history to recover some tabs that I hadn't read it, what I could avoid with IE.
