Malwarebytes Releases Another Beta to Fix Malwarebytes 3 issues

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

It’s starting to sound like they may have rolled out Malwarebytes 3 a bit too early; it doesn’t exactly boost user confidence to release a security program with this many bugs.

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Looking for another browser alternative? Pale Moon 25 is an interesting Firefox spin-off …

Pale Moon is a popular web browser that is probably best described as a spin-off of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. It has seen a rise in popularity recently as it did not implement the new Firefox Australis design but that is not the only reason why it is popular.

Friday, October 10th, 2014

I wonder what took them so long?

Firefox users who run the browser on Windows systems have two options currently when it comes to running it as a 64-bit application. They can either run the 64-bit Nightly channel version of the browser or use a third-party build such as Pale Moon which is offered as a 64-bit version as well. If you look at Firefox’s main competitors you will notice that Internet Explorer is being offered as a 64-bit version and that Google Chrome is already available as a 64-bit version as well.

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

I guess it boils down to a question of hardware again …

Computer users who want to buy Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 7 have two choices to make. First they need to decide on the edition of the operating system. At least three different editions are available for retail users, they are: Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate. Windows 7 Home Premium is the cheapest of the three, Ultimate the most expensive. The more expensive editions come with additional features and it is up to the user to decide which features are needed and which are not.
