spacerTech Tip of the Month



Browse the Internet with Mozilla’s Firefox, rather then Microsoft Internet Explorer. Over 70% of the world currently uses Internet Explorer as their primary browser. Therefore, the programmers that write those pesky pop-ups and advertisements target Internet Explorer to reach the broadest number of people. Mozilla’s Firefox has a very similar interface to IE, so users won’t be confused by the new software. In addition, Firefox offers tabbed browsing, and a built-in pop-up blocker superior to many commercially available blockers. The best part of Firefox: It’s Free. Go to to start using Firefox today.

Previous Tech Tip Of The Month
To speed up your PC, by far the simplest way available is to perform a defragmentation of your hard disk drive. This is a fairly time consuming process but a speed increase of around 2-3% should be noted. It is important to remember that, while this doesn't sound a great deal, if you add this to other tips and tweaks the speed increase margin becomes significant.
