Internet Explorer 9 RC released: Everything you need to know

The Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate is now available. For all intents and purposes, this means IE9 is feature complete. Small changes might occur, but it's mostly bug stomping from here on out. Download it, give it a whirl; it might just be the first IE browser that's actually enjoyable to use. Download Squad got its grubby mandibles on the RC a few days ago, which means we can show you...

Your guide to Firefox 4 and its shiny new features

Firefox 4, with the release of Beta 7, is as good as finished. From now until its release in early 2011, no new features will be added, no significant changes will be made -- Beta 7 is, for all intents and purposes, Firefox 4. Unlike Firefox 3.5 (private browsing) and 3.6 (personas!!), version 4 has a significant number of new in-your-face features -- features that will take a little getting...

Microsoft publishes safe computing guide aimed at teens

Google's not the only company rolling out the family safety information today. Microsoft, too, has a new resource available. It's not a website, though, it's a 17-chapter e-book -- and it's exactly the kind of thing I've been wishing I could pass out to customers for a decade. Own Your Space [Google PDF viewer link] is presented as a series of stories. You'll meet Eric, Braden, and a host of...

Photoshop CS5 imaging tip: HDR goes PRO!

HDR, or 'high dynamic range imaging', is a popular term in photographic circles at the moment. Love it or hate it, HDR, thanks to the digital camera, is here to stay. To that end, Adobe has finally given us a half-decent interface for conjuring up blindingly over-shiny and under-achieving HDR photographs. Dubbed 'HDR Pro', it replaces the God-awful interface present in CS4. Whether it will make...

Eloquent JavaScript is an interactive, free JavaScript book

If you do any Web development work, JavaScript is something you really have to know. It makes the difference between a website that feels like it was built in 1996 and the current crop of slick, modern sites that behave more like online applications than static pages of information. JavaScript isn't a difficult language, and moreover, it's extremely common. Both of these reasons account for the...

Essential apps and utilities for PC, Mac and console gamers

Never, in the entirety of history, has there been so much gaming to be done. You can hardly finish a game without the Next Great Game appearing in your mailbox or on your hard disk -- because you pre-ordered it on Amazon or Steam, of course. Believe it or not, we actually have too many good games at the moment. Until recently, gamers could dedicate themselves to a single stand-out game --...

The Ultimate List of Google Wave Robots

This list has been a long time coming, and for that I apologise. But I think it will be worth the wait. In just the last month invites for Google Wave have opened right up with second and third generation testers getting invite codes of their own to distribute. Developers and users are now flooding into the new and exciting service. As a result, we're seeing rapid and extensive development of...

Confused about Google Wave? Now you can read the bleeping manual.

Google Wave is an innovative new communication tool, but part of innovation is that it's not always intuitive to use. Early adopters have been jumping into Wave with little guidance on how to take advantage of all its features. I guess you could watch the 90-minute Wave video, but that's not exactly a quick-start guide. Well, there's a saying almost as old as computers themselves, and it goes:...

Unions will make sure you don't get fired for using Facebook

If you use Facebook at work, like most of the population out there, and your employer catches you, you could get disciplined. The Trades Union Congress in the UK has your back. The TUC has issued an acceptable Facebook for the workplace usage guide. Everyone knows that a little Facebook-ing can result in low productivity numbers for organizations, especially since social networking has been...

There are many great services out there that offer show times, channels, and content breakdowns, but how do we know which one is the best to turn to?

Gifts for your Geek this year

Some people can't seem to get this idea out of their heads that gifts have to be something physical. When I began to think about the holidays this year, I thought about all the things I wouldn't mind having, and I thought of mostly physical hold-it-in-your-hand gifts I want. Most of the gifts I hope to get happen to be virtual. Here is a nice rundown of some of the things you might think about...

Tweaks for Winamp power users

I'll admit it, I used to be a Winamp snob. For years Winamp was by far the best Windows audio player available, and not too long ago the sight of any other app-usually Windows Media Player-on a friend's desktop would send me into a fugue. Okay, not really, but you get the idea. Nowadays Winamp's competitors have brought up the rear, but there are still things Winamp can do that the major players...
