Digital Blasphemy



It's a shame how the web has gone down over the years because of the advent of Social Media.  It seems that not that long ago everybody had their own website and backgrounds were used a lot. The worst thing Yahoo could have done was after purchasing Geocities they shut it down and all of the hard work that people put into their websites and the community spirit that had grown was destroyed. I was a community leader in the Heartland and then a Yahoo Expert once Geocities was closed.  But then, Yahoo shut down the experts platform too.

Windows 11

Windows 11’s Task Manager is getting new features

Microsoft is working on two new features for Windows 11’s Task Manager: Microsoft Edge integration and Eco Mode. Microsoft Edge integration is now rolling out to devices running Windows 11 Build 22000.282, while the Eco Mode feature is expected to arrive later this year or early next year.

To ensure the browser doesn’t reduce the performance of your machine, Windows 11’s Task Manager can now better manage resources used by the Edge browser. As you’re probably aware, managing browsers using the Task Manager can be very frustrating and Microsoft wants to improve the experience.

Browser Comparisons

Seven of the best browsers in direct comparison

Looking for a better browser? We’ll compare Firefox with Chrome, Edge, Safari, Opera, Brave and Internet Explorer to help you make your decision.

Since your browser is your gateway to the internet, speed, security, privacy and utility are paramount. In recent years, Google Chrome has been the browser of choice for many. But at a time when online ads seem to follow us everywhere and data breaches are a fixture of news headlines, a lot of people are starting to demand more privacy and respect from their browser.

So is your browser the best one for what you do online? The right browser can make a big difference in how you experience the web. So, without further ado, let’s compare Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Brave, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge — and see which best suits your needs.

CKEditor CDN

Get up and running in minimal time using the CKEditor CDN.  Nothing to download.

CKEditor is hosted on servers spread across the globe - scripts are loaded faster because they are served from the nearest locations to the end user.

If the same version of CKEditor has already been downloaded (even on a different website), it is loaded from cache.

CDN reduces the number of HTTP requests handled by your server so it speeds it up as well!

Google Chrome and Windows

Here’s our first look at Google Chrome’s new design for Windows 11

Google has finally started testing a new design for Chrome on Windows 10 and Windows 11, and more details on the visual overhaul are now available.

Google is apparently using Microsoft Edge-like Windows 11 menu to bring the browser in line with the new operating system. The first glimpse of what Google Chrome may look like on Windows 11 is provided in the latest build of Canary, but you’ll need to turn a new experimental flag to see the improvements.

► What is XHTML?
-XHTML is a variant of HTML that uses the syntax of XML, the Extensible Markup Language. XHTML has all the same elements (for paragraphs, etc.) as the HTML variant, but the syntax is slightly different. Because XHTML is an XML application, you can use other XML tools with it (such as XSLT, a language for transforming XML content).

► What is CSS?
-CSS is the language for describing the presentation of Web pages, including colors, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language. The separation of HTML from CSS makes it easier to maintain sites, share style sheets across pages, and tailor pages to different environments. This is referred to as the separation of structure (or: content) from the presentation.

Web Fonts


What is WebFonts? -WebFonts is a technology that enables people to use fonts on-demand over the Web without requiring installation in the operating system. W3C has experience in downloadable fonts through HTML, CSS2, and SVG. Until recently, downloadable fonts have not been common on the Web due to the lack of an interoperable font format. The WebFonts effort plans to address that through the creation of an industry-supported, open font format for the Web (called "WOFF").
