Just this week, a client at iTandCoffee was looking for an easy way to convert web pages from English into his first language, Serbian.
In this article we will look at how easy it is to do this for any web page on your computer.
A client of iTandCoffee this week found that he could not arrange his Visa for a visit to Myanmar because Google Chrome on his Windows computer was blocking, and the site needed these popups to be enabled.
To assist this client, I prepared the following set of instructions that give the steps to follow in Chrome to enable popups for a specific site like this. Here they are:

I have lost count of how many times recentlyI have seen clients who have Macs and are running Chrome as their web browser.
Most of the time, when I ask them why they are using Chrome, they tell me it is because their kids told them that it is so much better than Apple's built-in web browser, Safari.
These clients have no real reason to prefer Chrome over Safari - the are just taking the advice of the supposedly tech-savvy younger generation.
Well, guess what?! The younger generation don't always know best on technology matters.
I do not use Chrome on my Mac. I use Safari.
My Mac is an Apple device, and Apple has built Safari to work on my Mac - so I am happy to use Safari.
I have never found Safari limiting and, since it closely matches the Safari App on the iPad and iPhone, it offers a consistent 'experience' between the Mac and the iPad/iPhone.
Chrome is a very 'power hungry' app and can drain you Macbook battery more rapidly than Safari. As an intensive user of my web-browser on my Macbook, I do not want to see my battery usage wasted.
Quite often, IT suipport people who are not familiar with Mac will blame Safari for issues that they can't resolve - and recommend the Mac owner download and use Chrome instead of Safari. Personally, I have never found a website that does not work with Safari.
For the majority of iTandCoffee clients, I would recommend sticking with Apple's standard Apps for Mac, and therefore sticking with Safari - despite what the kids (or Grandkids) and 'Windows-only' people say.
For those interested in reading more, here are some articles comparing web browsers.
