Thanks again, angeldeb82. I never get notices from Adobe (even though I signed up for them). But I do get notices from you in this thread 8)

New technology will link all of your devices through inaudible sounds, so that if you visit a site on your computer, get directions to a place on your phone, and use your TV, the trackers will know that it's all you :shock:

Interesting article: "Beware Of Ads That Use Inaudible Sound To Link Your Phone, Tv, Tablet, and PC"

Firefox 43 arrives with 64-bit version for Windows, new strict blocklist, and tab audio indicators on Android. Pretty good, if I say so myself.

Sometimes I think Mozilla and Adobe are in a contest to see who can update their products more often.

Starting tomorrow, millions of people will lose access to Internet due to the SHA-1 Sunset plan. But our more modern browsers still support SHA-2, so it's nothing to worry about.

Today, Microsoft is dropping support for all Internet Explorer browsers except Internet Explorer 11. Also, the company is dropping support for Windows 8. Well, I'm still running Windows 8.1, so my Internet Explorer 11 is safe. :cartmanhappy:
