This week’s Tech Roundup includes WordPress 3.3, power user guides for Chrome and Firefox, IE to auto update, and HTTP status cats.
What’s the Most Secure Web Browser? – The study was funded by Google and not-surprisingly Chrome was ranked the most secure browser. Each browser has a study that says their browser is the best. Still, the results are interesting.
WordPress 3.3 Released – New version of WordPress out this week. Definitely some welcome improvements (widgets, drag & drop media uploader for starters). Also, check out my post highlighting the key features and explaining why you should update.
The Power User’s Guides to Chrome and Firefox – A must-read if you spend all day in your browser, you like to tinker, or you just like to get the best out of your browsing experience. They cover interface tips & tricks, customized settings, add-ons and extensions, and other features.
Most Popular Windows Downloads and Posts of 2011 – Check these out, twenty one in all. From this article I installed Dexpot and I’ve been using it for a few days. Expose and Spaces are the two things I miss most from my Mac using days. Now they are essentially back!
Most Popular Mac Downloads and Posts of 2011 – And, of course, we can’t leave out our Mac friends. Fifteen resources in all here.
Internet Explorer to auto-update – Surprising and exciting! Microsoft is, essentially, going to force you to update your browser. XP users will get IE 8 and Vista and Windows 7 users will get IE 9. In theory, this will make the lives of designers and developers much easier. But let’s see if it works, first.
HTTP Status Cats Make Internet Errors Cute – A little fun to close the roundup this week. These are super cute. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend!
