Video: Browser makers to block intrusive ad formatsOpera claims its eponymous web browser is "far faster than Firefox Quantum 58." Mozilla claims its better use of CPU time makes Firefox really fast. And when I turned on Edge the other day, it claimed it's the fastest browser of all.OK, they can't all be right. So, which Windows 10 web browser is the fastest of them all? I put the most popular Windows 10 browsers to the test. These were Windows 10's built-in Edge 41 and the increasingly decrepit Internet Explorer (IE) 11. I also checked out the latest versions of Chrome 64, Firefox 58, and Opera 51. Before I jump into the testing, I should mention Opera is something of a Google Chromium -- the open-source version of Chrome -- clone. It uses the WebKit/Chromium rendering engine. That's why Chrome and Opera's performance numbers are often close to being identical. I benchmarked these browsers on my Windows 10 test PC, a Dell XPS 8910. It's powered by a 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-6700 … [Read more...] about What’s really the fastest Windows 10 web browser today?

Using this process, you can quickly resolve startup and shut down problems as well as memory usage and apps issues. In addition, you can quickly get rid of viruses and other types of malware, fix system corruption and improve battery life. If you're upgrading from a previous version, a clean installation is also a good method to install the new version. Although there are several ways to upgrade, they usually don't work correctly, and they may bring unwanted settings, files, and apps to the new installation. It's also a useful choice to start fresh with a copy of Windows 10 on a new hard drive that you just replaced, or to set up a new device that came pre-installed with a lot of bloatware. In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to properly prepare and perform a clean installation, whether … [Read more...] about How to do a clean installation of Windows 10
Like any complex piece of software, Windows 10 and its installation process is vulnerable to mistakes, glitches, and hardware errors. That being the case, here are some of the most commonly-encountered problems that arise when installing or upgrading to the new version of Windows. If you’ve got Windows 10 installation problems, you’ve come to the right place. Side note: If the latest version of Windows 10 is experiencing widespread problems, you may also want to wait. The April 2018 update alone had the potential to wipe all the data from your desktop or break Chrome, and the October 2018 update had its own share of problems and was recalled and delayed. Not an ideal outcome!
