A lot of functions that used to require programs are now found on the internet. Start.me as become my home page for both Firefox (my default), Chrome and Edge. This example of my home page shows how everything I might use is at hand. You'll notice a second tab called bookmarks. I imported mine and rearranged them to suit - far more accessible. I find it particularly useful since my stroke has made my memory less than reliable.
There are so many other useful tools and tips re the internet (and they change so fast) that I'll leave it there. The latest nice little trick is advertisements interrupting videos I watch. This has created a huge reaction (unfavourable). I've tried some of the "solutions" but to little effect so far. These are the result of the internet moving from a source of information to a source of commerce.
