I am really enjoying the themedesign of your blog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue? dkeckedeebebgcgg

EXCELLENT Site and so very current. Your site does an excellent job of definitions and explaining the terms interface usage where appropriate

It's interesting how the first 3 terms are the most commonly used today: computer, os and the internet. This means that technology still has lot of ground to cover. I don't know how statistical relevant is this study (it depends on so many factors - for example the SEO of the webopedia.com).

Yes, and many pages and definitions on Webopedia are student and teacher friendly. Some of the more common "computer 101" terms on the site are very popular with this group of readers.
