are your web browser secure enough?

Today, web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari (to name a few), are installed on almost all computers. Because web browsers are used so frequently, it is vital to configure them securely. Often, the web browser that comes with an operating system is not set up in a secure default configuration. Take note that, not securing your web browser can lead quickly to a variety of computer problems caused by anything from spyware being installed without your knowledge to intruders taking control of your computer.
There is an increasing threat from software attacks that take advantage of vulnerable web browsers. 
New software vulnerabilities are exploited and directed at web browsers through use of compromised or malicious web sites. 

This problem is made worse by a number of factors, including the following:
  • Many users have a tendency to click on links without considering the risks of their actions.
  • Web page addresses can be disguised or take you to an unexpected site.
  • Many users do not know how to configure their web browsers securely.
  • Many users are unwilling to enable or disable functionality as required to secure their web browser.
As a result, exploiting vulnerabilities in web browsers has become a popular way for attackers to compromise computer systems. 
You can make your browser become secure by following some instructions in;

Clear Your Browser's Cache

Every web browser stores web pages, images and other downloaded content on the computer. 
This is called the browser's cache

After the browser opens, click on "Tools"

Now click on Clear Recent History. Alternatively, you can access this menu directly by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete.

Now, beside "Time range to clear", click "Everything".

Click on Details and select only Cache. 

Select Clear Now.

Clearing it occasionally or regularly can protect your privacy and free up some space in your computer.

World Wide Web = www

www is commonly known as The Web.
It is a system of interlinked hypertext documents contained on the Internet.
With a web browser, one can view web pages that may contain text, images, videos and other multimedia.
We can navigate all of it by using hyperlinks. For example,
Hyperlinks are created with an "href" tag (hyperlink reference).
In it's simplest form the tag looks like this:

In this example, the text "Go To Page 1" becomes a hyperlink to a page called "page1.html". The link looks like this: Go to page 1

(for more information about hyperlink: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperlink)

Most of us do not know that some of the web has become criminals' preferred pathway of spreading malware.So, each time you are browsing the net, make sure that you will not become one of these criminal's victim.

Happy surfing!

can web be a dangerous place?

Back in the “olden days” of the World Wide Web, “seeing the sites” was a relatively safe activity. Most Web pages were written in simple HTML, with text and pictures and not much else. Of course, the very first browsers were text-only. HAHA
In 1990's, new technologies emerged to make Web browsing a richer, more entertaining and more interactive experience. Soon Web pages contained much more than text and pictures. Web designers began to use scripting and other embedded code to make their pages come alive. Microsoft introduced ActiveX, an outgrowth of OLE and COM technologies, that provides functionality similar to Java applets but with more flexibility (and posing a bigger security risk) because ActiveX controls can access the Windows operating system.
Scripts, applets and ActiveX controls can all be embedded in Web pages to do some amazing things, but they can also be used by malicious coders to do not-so-wonderful things such as infecting your computer with a virus, surreptitiously install software on your machine that will allow a hacker to take control of it, launch an attack, etc. This is due to the nature of the technologies; like all technologies, it can be used for good or evil.
As if that weren’t enough, all popular Web browsers (like all software of every type) have security flaws, some more serious than others.

.browsing the net.

do you like browsing the net?
for me, its a must for every people.
they love browsing the net!!

but it is impossible to browse it without using the 'browser'
so,i would like to talk a bit about web browser.

web browser is a software application for;

retrieving, presenting, and traversing

information resources on the World Wide Web = www

Nowadays, we have many types of web browser such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Seamonkey,  Opera, Camino, Amaya etc.
These are the examples of my favourite web browser.
 Mozilla Firefox

Google Chrome

Each of the web browser can be updated from time to time to make sure that we can browse the net easily and in a short time. They are really easy to use and it depends on us - which one to use.

and include your feeling after you ate the food.

you can have new habit.

PLUTO is changing its colour!

one day,

sister's bf : nina, ade x bace brite pasal planet PLUTO?
me          : nape bang?
sister's bf : NASA ade dpt imej baru psl PLUTO. warne dy dah bertukar.
me           : seriously?. okay2, nanti balik kite chek kt internet.

its kind of scary actually.
so,i open the nasa website.

and this is what i got.

"The images taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope show an icy and dark molasses-colored, mottled world that is undergoing seasonal changes in its surface color and brightness. Pluto has become significantly redder, while its illuminated northern hemisphere is getting brighter. These changes are most likely consequences of surface ices sublimating on the sunlit pole and then refreezing on the other pole as the dwarf planet heads into the next phase of its 248-year-long seasonal cycle"

not many of us knows about this thing.
whether they didn't realize it or they don't even care.
but as a human being, we should know that this is one of the sign from our God.
we should prepare ourselves for anything in the future.

i really like this website because it tells us about the universe.
but honestly, im quite scared to read all of it.
i don't know how to explain it.
but im sure, you understand why i am scared.

feel free to visit the website.
hey hey hey!

would anyone pay for MYSPACE music?

its getting weird here.
why do they wanted us to pay?
the major reason is because;
the cost of free streaming making it unsustainable.
hey, come on.
consumers already know plenty of places to find free music,
and historically they're only liable to open their wallets for a superior experience.
so i don't think that people would pay for that.
these are world nowadays.
money is very important and each of us is trying to have it in any ways.
undoubtedly, people won't agree with this suggestion.
me also.

that's all.
hey hey hey!

addiction on internet?

well well well.
i've read an article recently.
and its all about internet.
some of us do have made surfing the internet as their hobby.
and nowadays, if someone do not know how to use internet,
they will be considered as a 'lamer'
but hey, there is something you should know about internet.
and i'm quite shocked to know about it.
it said that, if a person who likes to browse the internet 24-7,
they are having a serious depression.
i never thought about it.

"Some people develop a compulsive internet habit, socializing online through social-networking sites and chat rooms instead of meeting people in person. The researchers found that people who did this were more likely to have depression than other internet users"

The study, published Feb. 10 in Psychopathology, looked at 1,319 people, ages 16 to 51, and found that 1.2 percent were addicted to the internet. Those that were deemed "Internet addicts" also had a higher incidence of moderate to severe depression, the researchers found.

so, what do you think people?
are depressed people drawn into the internet?
does the internet cause depression?

it depends on you.

hey hey hey!
