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…

Beginning of the End of Internet Explorer . . .



Internet Explorer is being replaced by Spartan


This is gonna be the goodbye message to Internet Explorer (IE) from Marks PC Solution. Released with Windows 95, Internet Explorer is still holding the position of default browser in Windows Operating Systems. After running for the 20 years, Internet Explorer is now too old to use. 

Windows 10 (Technical Preview) users are still using Internet Explorer 11. But in Windows 10 Consumer Preview, Internet Explorer may no longer be available. Currently Microsoft is developing a new browser with the codename Spartan. If the codename is not changed, then Spartan will be the default browser of Windows 10. 



What Does the Word Spartan Mean?

The citizen of Sparta is called Spartan. Sparta was a prominent city in ancient Greece. But I really don't know where the codename Spartan come from.

Why Microsoft is Terminating the IE?

In fact, the termination of Internet Explorer is the demand of time. As I mentioned in my browser review post, Internet Explorer is losing market share to Chrome and Firefox, so it's really difficult for Microsoft to increase it's popularity. 

During the last 4/ 5 years, Windows users have stopped using IE. And most of the web developers have also stopped maintaining the IE standards. That's why IE users are facing security and incompatibility issues.

When people get something new, they become interested to it. Most of the people of the web (Not Me) now love to hate Internet Explorer. That's why there is only one way open to Microsoft - Termination!

But one source said, Microsoft will keep Internet Explorer along with brand new browser Spartan. 



How will be the Spartan?

Microsoft hasn't shared anything about Spartan yet. In fact, the rumor about the new browser has been spread by the tech sites. As signaled by most of the sources, Spartan will be much more different from Internet Explorer. It will enhance the user's browsing experience. 
  • Much more similar to Chrome & Firefox (Not like IE)
  • Faster and lighter browsing experience
  • More convenient browsing interface than IE


What's Really Gonna Happen?

Everything we are getting about Spartan on the web are sill vague. Because Microsoft hasn't declared anything officially. And the project is just codenamed as Spartan. Just 3 days later, on January 21, Microsoft is gonna host a press meeting about Windows 10 Consumer Preview. 

On that meeting, hopefully we should know something about the new browser . . . :)
