Today’s Software Picks: TeamViewer, Microsoft Edge (Canary Chromium Edition) and Firefox

The first selection today I point you to “The Portable Freeware” web site to download TeamViewer. This is a good selection if you need to remote into a PC to assist Mom and Dad (or others). TeamViewer is a well-seasoned screen sharing, remote control, and collaboration tool.

You may have known that Microsoft is currently working on changing the Microsoft Edge browser and is using Chromium as its’ base. If you currently use Chrome, you will be right at home with Edge. If you go to “Major Geeks”, you can download the canary version of Edge. For you folks at home; anytime you see the terms, “canary, alpha, beta”, these are test versions and have not been released to the public in general.

Finally, I am seeing where Firefox version 70.0 has been released. I never thought I would see the day where software versions reach into the high double digits, but here we are. This version is about 8 digits higher than my age–LOL. Anyhow, Firefox is an excellent browser that you should consider that is available on my platforms.

Feel free to comment and share your software finds. You can find a whole slew of downloads HERE … that are updated daily.

FREE Browser Extension That Blocks Tech Support Scams, Hijackers, Popup Ads, Trackers and More…

Came across a browser extension called Browser Guard (by Malwarebytes) that was actually introduced in July 2018 but is the first I have actually installed it, as a Google Chrome browser extension. It is also available as a Firefox browser extension, as well.

What drew me to this was a recent Malwarebytes news article on how “Browser Guard combats privacy abuse, tracking, clickbait, and scammers“; AND, that Browser Guard has the best protection among competitive browser security offerings, blocking 98.07 percent of malware.

Browser Guard, a free extension, blocks unwanted ads and trackers that intrude upon users’ privacy, while also protecting against clickbait and scams. The extension prevents browser hijackers, lockers, and annoying and sometimes malicious pop-ups, all known scare tactics to trap consumers in tech support scams, exposing them to unwanted content and forcing them into purchasing unnecessary, expensive technical support.

More “Downloads”

Feedbro – Fast feed reader as a browser extension for Google Chrome, Vivaldi and Firefox…

Feedbro is a tree-based feed reader with folders and drag & drop support. Can have unlimited feeds… Highly recommended.

Opera view

If you don’t know what a feed reader is…  In simple terms, it allows a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator. For example, I have a couple hundred feeds from news sites, tech sites, shopping sites, etc… that download up to the minute information into my feed reader where I can consume and quickly browse a large volume of information in one place. In my case, I use Feedbro as my feed reader.

Engadget reporting that Firefox has a new side-by-side tab feature for multitaskers

Firefox is (has always been) a great web browser. This new side-by-side view feature is a great feature for power users…

Firefox is jazzing things up with a couple of new test features that should embolden multitaskers and those who like to tinker with aesthetics. Side View lets you view a pair of tabs side-by-side without needing to open a new browser window.
