We use every product or service for a purpose, which on getting over is either of no use to us or can be reused for some other purpose. There is a third angle to this, which says that the next best alternative can substitute the particular product/service. So, in cases one and three, when the existing product/service is of no use to us, we dispose of it and get rid of it. We do not keep it safe and let it occupy our space unnecessarily. The same is the case with browsers, which you should uninstall to clear your device’s memory space if not of any use.
