Windows 8 For Windows 7 Users!

Microsoft is on the move again and Windows 8 is around the corner! The best part is that you do not need to buy new hardware for the Windows 8 but all you need to do is buy and upgrade to Windows 7.

Web sites often store details about a user through cookies (small text files) that record details such as usernames, browsing history, and advertisements that have been seen. Unfortunately, due to previous storage methods, even if a user deletes his or her cookies, the web site can still reconstruct particulars from the Flash data.

Even Mozilla’s Firefox 4 has dropped support for the PPC architecture.

If you haven’t already replaced your older computer, you might not have to. Now there’s a program called TenFourFox that takes Firefox 4 and works with OS X 10.4 and OS X 10.5.
