Is Defragging My Computer Really Worth The Effort?

One of the biggest questions I get from customers is how good is how much defragging a computer can help performance. Well, that depends a lot on how often you use your computer and how many changes you make during the course of time. The more files you create and delete, the more you will need to defrag.

 

As you create files and delete files on your computer, spaces are created between the files, which then allows more files and programs to take up that empty space. Over time, these files get scattered all over the drive and your hard drive then has a harder time finding all the parts of a program or folder. This can both make opening a program slower but also it puts extra drag on your hard drive.

Firefox Issues New Version

For those of you who are Firefox fans they have just issued a new version that is claimed to be the fastest that they have ever made. We decided to put the software to the test.

It is without a doubt that the newer versions of the browser are much faster then the older previous versions. I tested the browser by  opening  known heavy sites that normally take some time to open, mostly because of all the media content  that  is loaded on the homepage. We started out be testing aol.com. The page loaded fairly fast for us but not much faster then the other browsers we tested it with. We  opened  up the same page in Internet Explorer and also in Maxthon. The Maxthon browser actually loaded the page the fastest.
