I listen to a number of podcasts on the TWiT.tv Podcast Network. I like to support media I like when I can so I've been a member of Club TWiT for some time. This gives me access to the shows ad-free as well as members only shows such as Hands-On Windows.
Hands-On Windows hosted by Paul Thurrott, a technology journalist. He has written field guides for using both Windows 10 and 11 as well as a number of other books.
The weekly show presents tips for getting the most out of a Windows PC whether its improving its performance or changing it visually to suit your taste.
The episodes are usually in the 15-20 minute range. They are available in both audio and video formats. I prefer the video as it's easier to follow Paul's instructions.
Some of the episodes are available for free. The latest is this one:
In it he goes through how he chooses a browser. He introduced an online tool I hadn't heard of before. He uses the Cover Your Tracks tool provided by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to check a browser's privacy settings. It's a quick check that displays whether your browser blocks ads and trackers by default or if it randomizes its fingerprint to prevent tracking across the web.
It's a checklist worth considering when testing different browsers or moving to a new machine.
I learn something new every time I watch the show.
