Microsoft Edge improved copy and paste will cause headaches

Microsoft Edge improved copy and paste will cause headaches

Despite the many innovations in the computing industry, a few things have remained the same throughout the decades. Keyboard layouts haven't really changed much, PC mice have at least left and right buttons, and copy and paste works as you might expect, even if it leads to embarrassing mistakes due to human error. The Microsoft Edge web browser is changing how that last bit works, and while it might be helpful in a few specialized cases, it will be an unwanted surprise for the majority of the cases where you use copy and paste on the Web.

Microsoft Edge is now a victim of fraudulent add-ons as well

Microsoft Edge is now a victim of fraudulent add-ons as well

Microsoft has been aggressively pushing its new Chromium-based Edge web browser to people, sometimes in ways that don't sit well with users. It has been promoting how fully-featured it is or how it is able to compete with the big boys like Google Chrome. It may have actually truly become big, enough that it is now a viable and perhaps lucrative target of less conscientious agents on the Internet as the number of fake copies of popular add-ons of Edge is starting to rise, just like with the big boys.

The Internet Archives is preserving Flash content for posterity

The Internet Archives is preserving Flash content for posterity

Mozilla's announcement that Firefox will pretty much stop playing Flash videos and games early next year was a reminder that a big chunk of the Web's history, both the good and the bad, will soon be gone but definitely not forgotten. For all the flak it has gotten over the years, it still gave birth to a multitude of content, some of which have never made it to the HTML5 transition. As keepers of the Internet's long and massive history, the Internet Archives is announcing a safe haven for these animations and games, at least those that will be able to run in a special Flash emulator.

Apple Silicon M1 MacBook Air runs The Witcher 3 using CrossOver

Apple Silicon M1 MacBook Air runs The Witcher 3 using CrossOver

Despite the benchmarks showing how Apple's first-ever Silicon beat 2016 desktop graphics cards, some might still unconvinced about the late 2020 Macs' ability to play games. After all, even the Intel-based Macs had compatibility issues with games that were designed with Windows PCs in mind. It's still too early to make a judgment call, of course, but if CodeWeaver's experience running "emulated" PC games is any indicator, it could be a mind-blowing experience just as well.

Firefox 85 in January will completely kill off Flash support

It's been a while since we've heard of any announcement concerning Flash and most have probably presumed it was already dead anyway. After all, it was years ago when Adobe, who bought Flash creator Macromedia a long, long time ago, announced that it would eventually stop supporting the former darling of the Web. The clock is ticking and fate has finally caught up with Flash and Mozilla is making sure that its remaining users know that Flash will completely stop working in the latest version of Firefox coming next year.

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

ARM-based computers, including the iPad Pro, have long been in existence but one thing that has held them back is the lack of familiar software and tools that people have come to rely on for work or personal use. To some extent, software like Adobe Photoshop has become a sort of litmus test and its absence has discouraged consumers from investing in these new devices and platforms. With Apple diving into the ARM world, however, Adobe can no longer really ignore this new wave of computing and has finally brought Photoshop not only to ARM-based Apple Silicon but, finally, to Windows on ARM as well.

Chrome 87 improvements sound almost too good to be true
