Secunia PSI

News was released this week regarding a potentially serious flaw present in Internet Explorer which potentially allows a hacker to gain control of a computer that has visited a website infected with malicious code. The scary thing about this particular bug is that the user doesn’t need to download or click anything to become infected [...]

Microsoft Photosynth

I do like innovative new ideas,especially if they come from an unlikely source such as Microsoft;despite being one of the largest and most successful companies on the planet,they do have a reputation for sticking to a tried and tested formula rather than risking money on groundbreaking new ideas.

Firefox 3

Before I start this article I just want to apologise;once again I am going to dedicate an entire article to raving about the Firefox Internet browser. Just when I thought I’d finally got my love for this browser in to the open and out of my system they throw a spanner in to the [...]

Mouse Gestures

I’m all for anything that increases my efficiency when using a computer. When you spend eight hours a day using one,even the smallest time saving improvements made to a user interface can make a huge difference. A few months ago I talked about keyboard shortcuts which I have found useful for many years and [...]

You have to excuse my cynicism but whilst the browser is [...]

RSS Feeds

As you are no doubt aware the Internet is a huge place and with billions of pages at your disposal it can sometimes be a little tricky keeping up to date with the information that you require. Luckily a technology known as RSS (Really Simple Syndication) makes it easy to have the latest news and [...]

Fresh Software

Several pieces of software came to my attention just recently;all four of them published by the practically unheard of ‘Fresh Devices’ company and available completely free of charge from www.freshdevices.com. I spent an hour this afternoon trying them out and thought they were worthy of inclusion in Click.

Opera 9

One would have thought that there was only a limited amount that could be done with an Internet browser but yet another alternative to Internet Explorer has just hit the market going under the name of Opera 9. Whilst not technically groundbreaking this new browser does offer a number of unique features that are not [...]
