Boost Your PC Speed by Using SSD

In short you can explain an SSD (Solid State Drive) as modern HDD (Hard Disk Drive). What's the difference then? Maybe the functions are almost same but there are some big differences between the two. Go through the post to clear the concept . . .

What's an SSD A solid state drive or SSD is a storage device that uses non volatile flash memory along with necessary controller and chipset to store the data. It's somewhat like RAM, but unlike RAM it can store data for a long period of time. 
An SSD drive is considered to be more durable and stable in that sense - There is no moving parts i.e. platters, spindle, R/W head etc. which are available in traditional HDD.  

Advantages of SSD over HDD If you use SSD as your primary boot device instead of HDD then you may get the following advantages -  Faster performanceLower power consumptionBetter vibration resistanceLower heat No noiseIn short we can say, SSD is more durable and stable than traditional HDD. 

After installing SSD, you will…

HTML Tutorial 4: Tags Without Ends

HTML Tags with no ending tags

After a long break I am gonna write another tutorial on HTML. This will be the number 4 tutorial of HTML. Today I would like to share some tags which don't have any endings! I mean you can just start these tags but they have no corresponding end tags. 

You might be interested to read the previously published HTML tutorial. These are as below: 

Now I can proceed to the Tutorial 4: HTML Tags with No Ends. Have a look at the image below. 

HTML Tags with no corresponding end tags

The above image doesn't include all the tags that have no ends. See the complete list below: 

  • <area> 
  • <base> 
  • <basefont>
  • <br> 
  • <col> 
  • <frame> 
  • <hr> 
  • <img> 
  • <input> 
  • <isindex> 
  • <link> 
  • <meta> 
  • <param>  

These tags have no corresponding ends. You just need to start them. 

For example: The <br> tag is used to create a line break. I mean it is used to create a new line. And when you create another line break the first one automatically ends. So it is needless to put an end tag to the <br> tag. That's why HTML standard excludes the corresponding end of the <br> tag. 

The same thing happened to the other tags mentioned in the list above. Another example could be the <img> tag. It is used to link to the image. Is it necessary to end an image with the help of an ending tag? Not at all. That's why the image tag is also don't have any ending tag. 

* XHTML always requires end tags. (Quite disappointing!) 

The <p> Tag: 

What about the <p> tag? By this time you all know about this tag. It is used to create a paragraph. And it has a corresponding end tag too. You can also guess - </p>. But many HTML authors even don't know this exists! 

However if you avoid the ending tag, I mean the </p> tag, your browser will never complain. The document will work quite fine. It is somewhat like the <br> tag. But the <br> tag has no end by rules. 

You can consider the rule as Omitting Tags. Yes, there are some tags in HTML which have end tags but you can avoid them. 

Hope you enjoy today's tutorial. Because this is an interesting feature of HTML in that sense that some tags have no ends. Some end tags you can omit as you wish. Stay in touch to get more . . .
