The latest and greatest versions of the three major Internet browsers have been released.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 9

Mozilla Firefox 4

Google Chrome 10

They are all streamlined and secure. Each has slightly different features, each has enthusiasts, each has its own world of add-ons that might make one preferable to another for you. […] continued “Comparing The New Internet Browsers, aka Microsoft And The LastPass Problem”

My goal for you is simplicity. I want you to use wonderful tools that are easy to use and easy to keep up to date.

Little things make me irritable.

Sharing Files With Dropbox

Yesterday I described how to share any file in Dropbox by right-clicking a file or folder, then clicking on “Get Shareable Link.”

If you do not see the option to “Get Shareable Link,” apparently you have to “enable your account”. It’s a single click described on this page. […] continued “Dropbox Sharing Addendum”

Dropbox is the essential free program to sync files among each of your computers and mobile devices. If you’re not a Dropbox user, you probably should be.

It’s obvious by now that nothing pursued by Apple should be underestimated. Apple has had its share of unsuccessful projects over the years that languished or died, but it has all the momentum in 2011 to move things forward simply by focusing on them.

Small businesses might be the next target. […] continued “Apple Makes A Move Into Small Business”

When I’m lonely and bored, I like to go back and read my old articles and marvel at how well I’ve been leading you through the fast-changing world of technology. It was just a year ago that I wrote these incisive comments about what to expect from Apple’s original iPad:

It’s probably a coincidence that major updates are being released for Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome within a few days of each other.

It’s also not very meaningful for most people. Although each upgrade has something that the developers claim is new and shiny – increased security, speed, design changes – I haven’t seen anything in any of them that gets me excited. […] continued “Battle Of The Browser Updates”
