gr are you still usinf offcie 2007. what kind of an it professional are you fgs.

even the old men in the village are on 2016 gavole.

Like car mechanics, techies have a habit of building systems for themselves from leftover bits and pieces… so older versions of Ms Office work just fine and load faster too! :D

Btw, my older custom computer is so well fine-tuned that it can probably smoke your latest clogged up Win10 machine that is probably running under a factory Windows.

you clearly have no idea how restricted office 2007 is. at least use 2010 fgs.

:roll: Don’t ever tell someone like me “you have no idea” when it comes to computers, just as I would never challenge your burger flipping skills, Lordo.

I may not use the latest Ms Office for myself, but it doesn’t mean I cannot support someone using Ms Office 2019 if the need arises.

What takes someone like you a month to learn would take someone like me a couple of minutes… always remember that. :)

I tried Kingsoft many years ago and it was OK, but it seems to have changed name now and looks cooler.

The Classic Browser v4.1 is now available for download!

This new version implements some user requests which we felt everyone would benefit from including...

1. Save image to disk:

Normally you can just drag & drop images to the desktop or to a minimized app on the taskbar, but someone suggested that it would be good to also right-click-save an image to a user specified folder. You can now do this when you isolate an image in a tab to zoom it, by right-clicking.

2. Save webpage to disk:

Although we can already extract any web page’s script, someone suggested that it would be good to just automate a direct save to the hard disk so we have added the function... Main Menu > Page Operations > Save Page ...to do just that!

3. The browser’s address field will now also accept the manual entry of valid domain names or IP addresses, and will automatically insert the “http://” + domain + "/" for you, to save you some typing.

Examples of good and bad domain name entries follow...

youtube <-- Bad
youtube.com <-- Bad
http://www.youtube <-- Bad
http://www.youtube.com <-- Good

4. An update of the Chromium engine's flags and countless little improvements here and there.

5. New browser-embedded Youtube icon on the top-left of the screen will now enable you to play a video in a new tab with no ads as well as play restricted videos.

6."Extract Elements" is a new website scraper added to extract the major unique element components of a website.

7. The Windows Snipping tool is now always accessible from the Script Macro Menu and thus just a R-click away.

Hello, I am really enjoying your browser! I have two requests: 1. Please modernize the user interface and 2. Please add the ability to search in the address bar. Other than that, a fantastic browser. Also, in what country is your headquarters located?

Thanks


Headquarters? :? :lol:
