Which is the top browser?

It appears that Chrome is the top browser used at the moment – where is Microsoft Edge?

Microsoft Edge is the default web browser on both the PC and Windows 10 Mobile, replacing Internet Explorer 11 and Internet Explorer Mobile. Microsoft initially announced that Edge would support the legacy MSHTML engine for backwards compatibility but later backtracked, saying that due to “strong feedback”, Edge would use a new exclusive engine, while Internet Explorer will continue to provide the legacy engine.

Below is a graphic from StatCounter.com which shows the latest trends in the browser wars

Top browser so far in 2016

When building a website it is important to make sure your website works in different browsers but which browser is safe for your clients to use?

There is a load of information on the web about which browser to use for safety. Below are a few bits of information we have found out for ourselves – but how safe is the information?

It is important to make sure your clients are safe. They also have a moral responsibility to make sure the websites they visit remain safe too. we should all investigate and research the points below.

  • Make sure you have a Strong Password Do you use one password to access several websites? Your unique password should contain at least eight characters, a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols – for every account you have.
  • Security Updates for your Browser and Operating System  It is important to keep your computer up to date with all security updates for your operating system, protection software and your browser(s).
  • Protect Yourself Against Spyware Spyware is malware downloaded to your computer or website, without your knowledge or consent, that runs in the background and collects information about you: Make sure whatever anti-virus program you’re running on your personal computers includes spyware protection, as well.
  • Use Caution When Entering Information Online When providing personal or financial information online, be certain that you have a secure connection. The URL in the address bar should change from “http” to “https” or “shttp.” A closed padlock symbol also often indicates that the connection is secure.
  • Use Discretion When Sharing Information Use discretion when updating social media websites. Even if you limit the number of people who have access to your profile, tweets, etc., keep in mind that the information is still published online and can be copied and pasted elsewhere. If anyone asks you for personal information, make sure they are who they claim to be and that there is a legitimate reason for the request.

#windows10 #Windows10fail – Windows 10 is a massive surprise

thunderbirds

There are a lot of privacy issues with the new Windows 10 but if you go beyond this it is actually pretty good. A bit like updating from Windows 95 to Windows 98 – at the time this was a massive improvement and I hate to say this…

Windows 10 makes using a Microsoft operating system as easy and as economical as using an iMac (God forgive me).

I uploaded 10 to my workhorse that ran 7. This computer has non available Mac programs on it and is one that I use to create, monitor and SEO client’s websites on. It was always a little sluggish and layout / design retrospective. The new system is quick and looks modern and is app driven – the new workspace is clean and slick.

Am I converted?
