Interesting Internet Finds – WE November 21, 2014

I publish Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program  with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors.

Computers, Technology, and User Groups Blog Interesting Internet Finds Word Cloud

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

This post will be the last Interesting Internet Finds posting until sometime in December. My Mom took a fall, and while with her I will have very limited internet access. She is OK, but very bruised up with a lot of medical appointments.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you. Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.

All the Things You Can Use Private Browsing Mode for
Do you not use private browsing mode, because you think it is only for visiting the more risqué sites? If so, check out this post from ghacks to learn some other uses.


I have not necessarily checked each link or process out, but if listed I have used the site enough to trust them.

That said, please let me know if something doesn’t work correctly, or the listed site has incorrect information.
