Internet Explorer 10 Tips and Tricks: It Can Do More Than You Think

When Microsoft unveiled Windows 8, one of the most interesting things about it was the new iteration of Internet Explorer. If viewed via the Start screen, the slimmed-down browser offers maximum space for viewing web pages thanks to the position of buttons and the address bar striped across the bottom of the screen (where people don’t usually read). It’s a fascinating new approach, but Internet Explorer 10 is apparently low on features and options.

However, did you know that your real life identity can be compromised based on your Internet persona? It’s called “doxing” and it’ll sneak up on you without your knowledge. Doxing can affect anyone.

Not Sure About Upgrading? Then Why Not Dual Boot Windows 8 With Windows 7?

Are you interested in Windows 8, but don’t want to abandon Windows 7 just yet? Well, why not dual-boot Windows 8 and Windows 7, selecting the operating system you want to use each time you turn on your computer? This allows you to test Windows 8 while keeping Windows 7 around as an escape hatch if you want out. This process will install Windows 8 on its own separate partition, leaving your Windows 7 system intact.

The IMDb App For iOS Is A Moviegoer’s Best Friend For The Latest In Movies, TV, & Celebrity Info

Is IMDb our portal into Hollywood? By the seventh month of this year, the IMDb mobile app for iOS and Android had logged 40 million downloads. So, it could very well be. IMDb is the de facto encyclopedia when it comes to movie information. The good thing is IMDb is not just a dull warehouse of entertainment information, but a powerful discovery tool also. There’s a lot to discover when the Amazon owned website keeps all the news on over 2 million movie and television titles.

Five Fascinating Uses For Google Maps & Earth

I think there can be little doubt that writers here at MakeUseOf really love Google Maps and Google Earth. We’ve written about them extensively, such as John’s Google Maps mashups article or Ann’s article on historical mashups using Google Maps. There are a lot of really cool things that programmers can do with Google mapping tools. This was the case over five years ago, and it’s still the case today.

The Complete Guide On Installing A Solid State Hard Drive In Your PC

A solid state hard drive is one of the best upgrades available for a modern computer. It increases the load times of programs dramatically, which in turn makes a PC feel snappier. Results can be dramatic. Some games, for example, loaded several times more quickly from an SSD after I replaced my own mechanical drive. The benefits of SSDs are not in question. But how do you install one?
