20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web


HTML5, CSS, TCP/IP, Cloud Computing, Cookies, DNS, URLs, Phishing – all over it?

If your technical knowledge could use some brushing up, the team from Google Chrome have created a very neat online ebook called ‘Twenty Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web’.

As we become more immersed in the web, it is important to understand more about the tools that we are dependent on. Can we be more efficient? Can we be more secure?

This guide runs through 20 common computing issues in a straight forward way. The way the book is implemented within a web page is outstanding.

Incidentally, Chrome is a web browser that Google thinks is better, safer and faster than the one you are using now – be it Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera.

It is available at no charge for Mac, Windows, iPhone or Android phone. (I’m using Chrome to write this post.)
