But.... AFAIK, routers divide broadcast domains, and switches (and
therefore bridges) divide collision domains.  For example:

"A bridge is a piece of software used to unite two or more network
segments. A bridge behaves like a virtual network switch, working
transparently (the other machines do not need to know or care about its
existence). Any real devices (e.g. eth0) and virtual devices (e.g. tap0)
can be connected to it." https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network_bridge

If I'm wrong please correct me.
