How to choose the right web browser for you! Guide!
Web browsers have become a part of our digital life, and anyone would agree with it. Many browsers are available to be installed and used, but 'one of them' should become your favourite and default browser, isn't it? Here's a guide on how to choose the 'right' browser for you! Check the speed of loading pages: Most people don't do a web search just to wait for some ten minutes till the results appear. They need a swift and fast browser, which is light on memory usage too. Ads are the monsters which makes loading a web page slow, and what if a browser could block all ads without any extension? Recommended: Brave Browser(fastest browser,lighter on memory usage,great totally ad free browsing experience) https://brave.com/ Security:Browsing the web can be dangerous. You personal information can be tracked, and you don't want that to happen. Many of the modern browsers have default security options, but are they actually secure? Recommended: Tor Browser(most secure ever, but very slow) https://www.torproject.org/ Fame: The browsers that has the most attraction are the ones widely in use. But don't get tricked, popularity doesn't mean the best! Recommended: Google Chrome(widely used browser) https://www.google.com/chrome/ Mozilla Firefox(Chrome alternative,some claim it's better) https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ Customisation and nice layout: Some people love browsers that loves to be customised to the latest, and so they do! Recommended: Vivaldi(the most customisable, nicest and noticeably fast browser, no version yet developed for ios) https://vivaldi.com/ Something like Vivaldi: Opera (has a free built in VPN with unlimited bandwidth) https://www.opera.com/ And if you don't want to consider any of these, try the new Microsoft Edge Chromium, it actually is better than Chrome now! https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge
Windows security or McAfee
So I’m pretty disappointed in McAfee’s software but Im unsure if I should just use windows security as a main source of protection. I like the fact that I can protect multiple devices that don’t run windows. Like my iPhone XR with mcafee. So I’m holding to start a topic about the pros and cons of windows security compared to mcafee or any other company that provides security for my device. I’m not new to technology but I’m not an advanced user either.
Update ver. 2004 Let's hear about your problems.
There are always tricks and hacks to bypass some unwanted updates and their side effects, and the previous update made the sound volume go up to 80% ,this time as well 80%. Some of you experience it too, and for those like me using headphones it's no joke, especially that the level i listen to music etc. is seldom beyond 6%. (Feedback has been sent by me many weeks ago.) The 2004 version finally prevents me from using the old search, where the results get updated as i type in the file explorer search box, and ever since i was ok with the search being slow or not showing all results, it was ok as long i did not have to take additional steps in order to get to any results. As of today i am literally forced to perform one more action in order to obtain the search results, which as most of you know, is by either clicking on the arrow in the file explorer search box, or hitting the enter key on keyboard. I may mention the tool i found today that is not the best, but is not missing any file out of the search results, is fast & allows a lot customization. The name of that search tool is 'Everything.exe' and can be integrated in the shell menu as well as in the file explorer drop down menu or mouse right click. This thing can literally search for any file and despite being set to use index created by windows search, it shows all files. After clicking on 'rebuild' which creates index from scratch the 'Everything.exe' did still show all files....so a 3rd party executable is capable of something widnows after all these years is not. This is just sad. The previous update asked me about location preferences and so on. Why do i have to select same check boxes each time? Now the last thing would be Cortana, which i disabled, but after the update not only the cortana symbol appeared on the taskbar, but cortana got enabled. Apparently Windows is about productivity, yet updates will not be complete unless i confirm some settings, and the search takes more time. Productivity?
Why I can't find Windows as comfortable to use as Linux
I use Windows only for some games, and if Windows 10 had more features, I could use it on daily basis, but at the moment it is missing a few very important features. First problem is filesystem support. Windows 10 supports only very few different filesystems, which means I can't access devices like my Raspberry Pi's SD card, and also NTFS isn't actually very good filesystem. Second thing is, I can't customize Windows 10 enough. (PLEASE tell me if any of following features exist, I would love to use them!) I would like to set custom shortcuts for moving/managing windows, and I would love to have at least partly similar behavior as tiling window managers on Linux have, by which I mean that by default, program would open full-sized (not fullscreen though), but if I open another program, it would automatically split the windows. Also, I find it actually harder to search programs from internet, and then download an installer, then run it to get the program installed, and then being able to use it. On Linux (I use Arch Linux btw.) there is a thing called package management, so with package manger I can search for programs and install them straight away, and then instantly being able to use them. Also through package manager I can update all my packages = whole operating system and all programs (which are installed via package management). Also I can't do as much stuff on Windows CMD or powershell as I can in Linux terminal, and especially on Arch I like that I've hand-picked each part of system, so I know what it can do, and what it contains. And in Linux terminal, with sudo (or root user) I have the rights over all the operating system. I understand that some of these will never be accomplished in Windows, but I hope that at least some of these will be picked up as an actual suggestions. If I had to select three things to include from these, they would be package management, filesystem support and waaayy more customization options.
Microsoft versus Chrome
I came across this analysis written by Lifewire concerning these two giants. The paragraphs below are just two that attracted my attention. 'Microsoft has decided to discontinue EdgeHTML and other core components of Microsoft Edge. Instead, the company plans to create a new version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium. Microsoft is going to build Microsoft Edge on the foundations of Chrome, meaning that key elements like the rendering engine will be identical. What's likely to remain different are the connected services. For example, you may still sync your bookmarks with your Microsoft account instead of a Google account, and Bing will likely be the default search engine for Microsoft Edge. A common platform will make it easier for developers to create content and apps that are consistent across the major browsers'. Source: Lifewire - https://lifewire.com - February 2020 I fully anticipate that Edge' et al will have to evolve as users' demands for greater connectivity and dynamic use increases - perhaps exponentially. 🤔 Post script: I did not get on with Chrome - niggly things I suppose - but irritating as a user.
Dark Mode vs Light Mode
So here is a quick survey. What do you think is the best mode for Windows to be in: dark or light? Remember that to such a question, there is no wrong answer. You could say that light mode is the best and be totally correct and another person could say dark mode and also be completely correct. But honestly, if you ask me, I would choose dark mode in a heartbeat, because it is visually appealing and for me at least, Fluent Design looks more fluid in dark mode. In addition, dark mode helps avoid the situation whereby your PC's display is a huge torch, and dark mode is gentle on the eyes. That ⬆ was my opinion. Thank you!
