Default IGV or IGB


In the past I used to work with IGB, mainly for DNA-seq.
I started working in a new lab, and the genome browser they have been using is IGV. Much of the data viewed in the lab is of RNA-seq and ATAC-seq.

I was wondering if there is any preference to IGV or IGB?
I found IGB to be easier to use and visually nicer, so I rather continue using it, unless of course there is some advantage to IGV.


P.S. i read somewhere that IGV is better for NGS data, is this true? and why?

I think JBrowse desktop is a lot faster, cleaner and nicer than those two.

I haven't used IGB for a while, but whatever works for you! IGV is just the most well known standalone genome browser in my eyes.
