I open one instance of VS in the morning, and just switch out the solution I'm working on. I sometimes need 2 instances, but that is a once every 3 months kind of thing. Not having a list of recent projects inside VS to pick from will be a pain in my a$$. VS 2017 already makes it harder for me because I have to manually close the current solution before opening another. Prior versions I could just open a new solution and the old one auto-closed.

To what end?
I've always been one of those guys for whom IE "just works" well enough to never really have committed to any of the alternatives, but given that even some MS sites no longer work with it nowadays, even I now have Chrome/Firefox installed, and would be okay if CP forced me to switch to something else.
There, I just gave you permission to break IE compatibility. I hope you weren't waiting for my blessings...otherwise...sorry about your afternoon.
