What is the difference between Web 2 and Web 3?

What is the difference between Web 2 and Web 3?

November 7, 2022 |

If you regularly follow tech news, and in particular that of cryptocurrencies, you have probably already heard of Web 3. Indeed, it is a term that is very regularly mentioned in articles or press releases. And although for the moment it is a rather vague notion, Web 3 could well be the next revolution of the Internet. For you to understand, it is important to note that Web 3 is neither a standard nor a particular technology. It’s more of an idea. In essence, after Web 1, then Web 2 (or the famous Web 2.0), Web 3 could gradually transform the way we use the web in the coming years. Web 1, Web 2, then Web 3?

Do you know what is the oldest domain name on the internet?

November 2, 2022 |

Domain names are essential for the proper functioning of the internet. Indeed, without these domain names, and without the DNS or Domain Name System, we would have to enter complicated addresses. But do you know what is the oldest domain name on the internet? As explained in an article by our colleagues at TechCrunch, this is the domain name symbolics.com. This one was not recorded in the 2000s or the 90s, but in 1985. On March 15 of this year, the Symbolics company purchased its domain name. This computer manufacturer offered machines optimized for a programming language called Lisp. Unfortunately, reserving a domain name very early on was not enough, since gradually, its sales declined. But until 2009, the domain name still belonged to Symbolics. This year, it was finally sold to a company specializing in domain names. In 1985, we only had the internet, but not yet the web….    read more

October 27, 2022 |

Google Chrome will soon stop working on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. An additional sign of the end of life of these two versions of Microsoft’s OS. Our software, whatever it is, has more or less long life cycles. Their end of life is shown differently depending on the parties concerned, but quite often, death is synonymous with the end of support by this or that platform. This will soon be the case for the popular Google Chrome browser on certain versions of Windows. An additional sign of the end of life of these two versions of Microsoft’s OS On a help page that announced the news, the American giant suggests updating to Windows 10 or Windows 11 to continue receiving Chrome updates.

Internet Explorer is over: 5 things you need to know

June 14, 2022 |

Inefficient compared to other browsers, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer is a subject of ridicule. And Microsoft started to abandon it in 2015, when Windows 10 (whose successor is Windows 11) was launched. Indeed, Windows 10 has been delivered with a new browser, more modern and more efficient: Microsoft Edge. However, so far, Edge and Internet Explorer coexist. While Edge is Microsoft’s main browser for Windows, Internet Explorer still works. 1. Why does Internet Explorer still exist today? If Internet Explorer does not interest the general public, it is however essential for certain companies whose activities depend on web tools that have been optimized for the old Microsoft browser. So even though Edge was there to replace Internet Explorer, it continued to receive updates. 2. When will Microsoft end support for Internet Explorer? In any case, this reprieve granted to companies will end this week. Indeed,…    read more

Most used web browsers: Edge overtakes Safari and takes 2nd place

According to the latest report published by StatCounter, Microsoft Edge overtook Safari in April 2022, becoming the 2nd most popular desktop web browser in the world. If Google Chrome remains firmly in 1st place with 66.64% market share, Microsoft Edge now obtains 10.07%, just ahead of Safari which is used on 9.61% of desktop computers. The gap between the two represents 0.46% market share. Why did Edge take advantage over Safari? This trend was initiated as early as February, when Safari began to lose ground against its main competitor. If Apple’s web browser still retained its place as the dolphin, its popularity has waned in favor of the one installed by default on Windows 11, the latest operating system launched last October by Microsoft. For its part, Safari has had to deal with complaints from its own community. In question: technical bugs, a user experience that was not there and…    read more
