Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

How to search for anything faster.

Open new tabs faster for Firefox, IE8 and Safari and Chrome by highlighting the keyword(s)/topic from a current page you are viewing then, while pressing ctrl key, press keys C, T, V and then release ctrl key and press 'enter' key.
Preferably, change your homepage to Google. Google gives better results than other search engines.

Narrow your search by adding + sign to the highlighted/copied/to-be-searched keywords and the additional keywords you're looking for. This way, you'll see the desired search results easily.

IE8 will load up when you start to navagate to another page error pops up that it needs to close. another program has caused the problem.


If you like IE8 that's fine but I would try another browser like Firefox, Safari, Opera, or Google chrome, all are very good browsers and in my opinion far better than IE8.

cannot access farmville.Error handler already exists


Zynga games are designed to be used with most browsers, however there are several documented issues surrounding Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and Flash Content.
If you are using IE8 we suggest that you try a new browser such as Firefox 3+, Safari 4, or Google Chrome. Internet Explorer v.6 or 7 should also be acceptable.
Firefox is available here:

Safari is available here:

Chrome is available here:
