Once again I want to throw something or even someone out the window. Because I live on the 7'th floor, this is usually not a good idea. So instead I beat the keyboard...:
I got the same email many of you also got today from Gizmo's Freeware a.k.a. TechSupportAlert, recommending a new article entitled "The Best List of Free Windows Security Software on the Web
" ((formerly known as Probably the Best Free Security List in the World
Wow, what a title; I simply had to follow that link! So I clicked the http://..., (no s in http) but Firefox replaced the page with this error message "Content Encoding Error. The page can not be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression. Please contact the owners of the site around this problem.
I have met this problem before, so I peacefully took a deep breath (in order to keep my monitor inside the apartment), and right-clicked the link to open in Internet Explorer 11, which had no problem opening the page. IE can also show the s version: https://..., but my Firefox will at best display a very crippled version, sometimes nothing.
What about your browser?
I like both Gizmo and Firefox, but I am truly disappointed:
- What good is a browser that won't browse, a page that will not load, a list that will not list?
I actually came here to say that there is this list, and it is a really interesting read
# and you can have it with or without s
• May 9, 2015: Section "All Items" has been added to this page. It contains a link allowing you to view the entire list on a single page.
• Apr. 23, 2015:
We have begun using an automated link checker to identify broken and redirected links. Broken links will be repaired if possible or else deleted. This has not begun yet.
• Apr. 15, 2015: This list was formerly known as Probably the Best Free Security List in the World. The list was split into many articles. Some keys were removed. Paid items were removed. All links, except for intra-list navigation links, should now open in a separate tab or window when clicked. The links in the Related Links section of this page have changed. Section Recently Deleted Items has been added to this page. Numerous formatting changes were made.
