Having a second dedicated browser for production testing a web app is a good idea.
You can configure bookmarks and predefined cookies set up to easily test production functionality. So if someone complained about a bug you can quickly test it in production and not have to worry about logins or cookies from my dev environment testing.
I use Chrome and Firefox for all my development testing. Having multiple browsers doesn't slow down the system or use up disk space. The only problem that I have encountered is remembering keyboard shortcuts.
Chrome is the most popular browser used by consumers. It would make sense that a dedicated production-only browser is based on the same underlying platform.
Chrome uses blink as it's web browser engine.
There are two good browser options that use Blink - Maxthon, and Opera. Both of these are excellent choices for testing production as if your using Chome.
Maxthon Cloud Browser is built on the Blink platform andhas over 670,000,000 users world-wide.
Main Features of Maxthon for QA:
Opera Browser is built on the Blink platform and has over 350,000,000 consumers.
Main Features of Opera for QA:
You'll have to decide which browser works best for your testing.
