SpyShelter lifts free Anti-Keylogger 32-bit restriction and integrates encryption driver

SpyShelter, creators of popular anti-keylogger programs for Windows, have just released an update that removes the 32-bit limit from the free version of the program and adds limited keystroke encryption to it on top of that.

The company released SpyShelter Free back in 2010 for 32-bit versions of Windows while the company's paid products SpyShelter Premium and Firewall supported both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the operating system.

Open Source Typeface Hack designed specifically for Code

The days of confusing 0 and O, l and 1, or Z and 2 while reading through pages of code late at night are finally over with the release of Hack, an open source typeface designed specifically for code.

While it is code that Hack has been designed for, its open source free for all nature enables you to use it in any program or web application that supports custom fonts.

Hack has been designed with legibility in mind, and it shows when you look at the supported characters.

64-bit Firefox Stable release for Windows delayed again

Mozilla released official 64-bit versions of Firefox for Windows back in 2010. The organization made those available only to the cutting edge Nightly channel of the web browser, decided to pull those in late 2012 only to cave in and give them back a month later.

How to clean install Windows 10 directly without upgrade

The official way to upgrade an existing computer system to Windows 10 is to upgrade it while it is still installed on the computer.

Some users prefer to do a clean install instead which, according to Microsoft, does not work directly if you have upgrade media (for instance by using the free in first year offer)

Clean installs are useful if you want to start anew, or if you don't have access to the old operating system anymore.

The best way to clone a hard drive (least time-consuming, error-prone)

The boot drive of my main PC has been a 128 Gigabyte Crucial m4 Solid State Drive for a long time. While that worked out well up until now, I always had to fight bloat on the drive to prevent it from being filled to the brim and slowing down the computer as a whole in the process.

Microsoft’s proof-of-concept JavaScript Browser is built using HTML, JavaScript and CSS

Surprise, surprise. Microsoft released a new web browser yesterday that is not Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.

The Windows Store page of the JavaScript Browser went live yesterday evening. The new browser is compatible with the company's Windows 10 operating system which means that Windows 8.x users won't find it listed in Store when they search for it.

The browser has been released as a proof-of-concept to demonstrate the capabilities of the Windows 10 platform.

Vivaldi browser continues to make progress: snapshot 1.0.258.3 released

I have high hopes for the Vivaldi browser. While it is not as complete as other browsers yet -- there is not even a stable version out there at the moment -- it is showing great promise.

What I like particularly is that the team is not just mimicking what popular browsers offer but adding features to the browser that it considers essential or at least important.

Microsoft releases Snip Editor, a screen capture tool

Snip is a new Microsoft Garage project that has just been released to the public. It is a screen capture tool similar to the Snipping tool included in Windows 7 and newer versions of Windows.

The basic idea of Snip is to use it to communicate ideas which means that it ships with an editor that you can use to add annotations to the screenshot and a sharing feature on top of that.

Microsoft intensifies data collection on Windows 7 and 8 systems

Microsoft has been criticized by privacy advocates in regards to the data hunger of its Windows 10 operating system. The operating system slurps data like there is no tomorrow, especially when systems are set up using the express settings.

Experienced users may disable telemetry and data collection partially during setup, and then some more afterwards using the Registry or Group Policy.
