Are airline pilots obligated to use autobrake or can they brake manually if they want?
From I have seen on YouTube videos they always make the call for autobrakes after touchdown

Brakes and tires get tremendous wear, which can be minimized by computer control. That might save a lot in maintenance and parts. Skidding can be almost eliminated. Autothrottle and thrust reversers are a big help on large aircraft.

Autobrake reduces the workload on the pilots when coming into busy airports. Things sometimes get a wee bit hectic

Depends upon the company policy. Autobrake is more efficient than manual braking. However not all aircraft have the facility.
