We have modest goals: the Internet Favorites page is simply meant to be the most useful tool on your computer. Make it your home page, become familiar with the layout, and you’ll be able to navigate online faster than ever. Lightning-fast browsing to the most popular online destinations with no ads, no distracting flashy bits, and no gossip headlines.

Let me know if you have any sites that you visit regularly that deserve to be included. (And drop me a note if you find any dead links – these sites change regularly.)

Arguments raged over the redesign. Andrew did a brilliant job of coming up with a layout that will get you easily to where you want to go. If you want to compare, flip back and forth between the new page and the old page – I think you’ll agree we’ve taken a giant step forward.

In 2011 I introduced an inexpensive monitoring service that keeps computers safe by silently and automatically installing security patches and updates for Windows, Office, Firefox, Chrome, Java, Flash, Adobe Acrobat & Reader, and other important programs and utilities.

It has quickly become an essential service for my clients. If you haven’t signed up, or if you’re a client and you want this protection for your home computers or notebooks, it takes less than five minutes to set up.
