Google Improvements to Search Console

Google floats two improvements to search console designed reports in a more appropriate manner for site owners.

 It has two new features designed to improve the efficiency of data analysis reports.

Website owners can now use these filter data through regular expressions (regex).

Regex Membranes

Search Console reports now support regular expressions, which will help create more complex queries and page-based membranes

Google explains how the new features support regular expressions which enable’s website owners to capture more query data:

“For example, suppose your company is called “Cats and Dogs”. You can use regular expression filters to define regular expression filters. Capture all brand queries: cats and dogs | cats and dogs | c&d.”

To create your new expression membrane, first create a query or page filter, then select the drop-down menu and select “Custom.”

Google Launches 2 Improvements to Search Console Reports

 The update of the Search Console performance report help page records the following about the use of regular expression membranes:

  • Search Console defaults to partial matching, which means that the regular expression can match any position in the target string, unless it contains the characters ^ or $, respectively, which requires matching from the beginning or end of the string, respectively.
  • The report defaults to case-sensitive matching. For case-insensitive matching, the website owner can specify “(?i)” at the beginning of the regular expression string. Example: (?i) https
  • Invalid regular expression syntax will not return any matches.

Finally, Google may sometimes not provide queries and pages to protect user privacy and due to storage restrictions.

In this case, Google will display a reminder when the relevant filter is applied to the query or page.

Remodel Comparison Process

Site owners use the comparison mode in Search Console to answer comparison-based questions.

The improved comparison mode now supports the selection of multiple indicators.

The interface improvements almost doubled the usable area of ​​the data table, making it easier to view the results side by side.

Search Console’s improved comparison mode also supports  expression filters for queries and pages.

 Only one filter can be applied to these metrics at a time. Adding a new comparison filter will replace the existing comparison.

These updates to Search Console are now available to all website owners.

PRIVACY, CONVENIENCE, AND THE STATE OF COMPASSION IN CHROME, EDGE, AND THE USER BETWEEN

There are a lot of promotion about Microsoft Edge now days, I come across articles that, for one reason or another, advise the reader to “ditch Google Chrome in favor of Microsoft Edge.” Many new and upcoming Edge features are frequently mentioned in these posts, as is the fact that Edge is now developed with Chromium – the same browser source code as Google Chrome.

To ensure that my evaluation of Microsoft Chromium Edge was fully objective, I spent this week using it exclusively on my Windows 10 PC. Yes, you read that correctly: a Chromebook enthusiast turned to Edge and used a Windows machine! Not only that, but I’ve switched from Google to Bing for web searches *gasp*! I searched as deep as I could using only Microsoft apps and services, attempting to create my entire workflow around them.

For this experiment, I essentially de-Googled myself. One of my first thoughts was that I really liked Edge’s vertical tabs functionality.

They are, in reality, the future of how we can manage and access the internet, in my opinion. Google tried this years ago in the form of side tabs,’ and we even wrote about it! I couldn’t live without Chrome’s Tab Groups feature, so I allowed it via edge:/flags and reveled in the potent combination of Tab Groups, Vertical Tabs, and Edge’s exciting Collections feature.

I assume that, thanks to its latest Side Panel functionality, Chrome will soon be able to collapse tab groups into the Reading List, so fans do not have to wait long to use this same method directly in Google’s ow.

The new Tab Scrolling and button creation seem to argue against this, but they are attempting to find ways to alleviate the horizontal space problem, so I believe that the natural evolution of these tools will inevitably follow Edge’s transition to vertical tabs.

Edge Collections are not the same as Google’s Collections functionality, but they may be in the future thanks to Assistant Memory.

Instead, they allow you to group browser tabs into distinct named containers for later retrieval.

With such a feature, I felt like my ability to switch between devices while retaining my browsing sessions would be more complete.

Oh, and the option to add sticky notes in the Collections section was a thoughtful addition as well.

The Web Capture tool

The Web Capture tool is another feature of Edge that I really like. I can see how being able to quickly take a screenshot of the web without the need for any third-party software could be very useful, Especially because it means your native tools and shortcodes are inconsistent across multi-device devices with different operating systems.

Lastly, a built-in share button is available on the Edge browser! It is how Chrome doesn’t have this, and how it makes no sense that I’ve been moaning for years. I mean, it’s 2021 – sharing is at the heart of our interactions so it’s a little bit goofy to have to manually copy and paste links on a desktop or laptop browser.

Chrome OS sharing sheet has been built into Shared Hubs and can be seen on Chromebooks in the near future, but I haven’t seen much evidence that comes to Windows, MacOS, and Chrome’s Linux Desktop.

Articles read it prominently later and were well crafted, but even after I have agreed with my suggestions in order to make them more technologically focused the service was overcome by showing me news about tragic events.

I’m not a Google News fan, but I’d like to see irritating policy about death and devastation – although some may say it’s synonymous.

I’m going to save my thoughts about the environment of the Microsoft app for yet another time, but when I finish my little experiment, I won’t suggest you should use one over another, but for a variety of reasons I ended up going back to Google Chrome.

First, Chromium Edge kept freezing and crashing at me. I have spent several hours trying to address technical solutions, such as disabling Proxy functionality in the browser, forcing them to exit via Task Manager, etc., but could not find a Microsoft browser that fits well with a Microsoft machine weird.

Unlike 5 years ago, Chrome doesn’t seem to be the source of wealth it used to be, due to its continuing AI discovery AI and machine learning tricks such as Partition Alloc – it was snappy and smooth even with hundreds of taps open, uncollapsed or frozen.

I used the Windows search feature, which opened queries in Bing, because I really wanted my Windows computer to have immediate access to web searching without the need to open a new Edge tab (once you have a Chromebook, you can’t miss out on this!).

Bing had a professional interface, the ability to add videos to playlists and play them directly in quest, and other features.

Unfortunately, with all of the ads you’ve ever Scroogled, Bing search results were admittedly pretty lousy as compared to Google. I discovered that the information returned was less important not only in terms of answering the questions I was asking, but also in terms of content type.

In the end, I discovered that adding Chrometana Pro to my Chrome browser and following its instructions to instal Edge Deflector enabled me to use Windows search to open search results in Chrome, despite Microsoft’s efforts over the years to prevent this from happening.

About security, which is frequently discussed in the aforementioned “ditch Chrome” posts. Security will be a problem regardless of which organization you select – benefit directly opposes privacy, and this is a natural rule. Google has done a lot to demonstrate that it cares for consumer privacy, but it has also done a lot to weaken its efforts over the years.

Google, like Theseus’ ship, is no longer an actual ship, but the concept of a ship – it can’t be destroyed, but it also can’t be described, and as a result, it can’t function in complete synchronisation with all of its moving parts. I’m not knocking that; it’s the reality of its life, and if we want to use Google Serv, we have to embrace it.

It is no longer sufficient to choose a brand that you are interested in or prefer for a season and then trash or discard the rest. It is also no longer sufficient to simply pick up a piece of technology and start using it.

Users should be more concerned with their privacy than corporations are, and they should take appropriate precautions to protect themselves by being and remaining regularly informed about current events and business decisions being taken around the board.

On a scale, privacy and comfort are inversely proportional; the more of one you have, the less of the other you have. That’s how it’s always been, if you think about it.

Humans have always had to depend on one another for everything since the beginning of time

Take the same idea and extend it to several generations. Our current reliance on big tech is a direct consequence of this, and there is nothing inherently wrong with it.

Big tech companies like Google and Microsoft may appear to be faceless, darkened heads on a screen, but the truth is that they are made up of human beings just like us who are trying to leave their mark on the world in a meaningful way by creating something awesome and innovating to solve a problem while feeding their families and keeping the lights on.

 If you’re talented enough, you might theoretically programme most of what Google provides, but I’m sure you’d rather go out and experience life, take pictures, spend time with your family, and work in your preferred industry. I might not like how much the shoe manufacturer charges for my shoes, but instead of making my own shoes, I’ll probably just switch brands.

In this regard, Google has made its fair share of errors, and I definitely don’t blame people for writing “ditch Chrome” posts.

However, let us not forget that Microsoft has had its own ups and downs as a mega-corporation for over 20 years, and as a result, many people have encouraged others to turn away from the business in favour of other goods and services. Indeed, Microsoft’s slow, complicated operating system, as well as privacy issues, are major reasons why Chrome and Chromebooks have become so popular in recent years.

I assume that when an organization takes action that is detrimental to others, certain individuals automatically move to the opposite end of the continuum. As a result, they lose out all of the advantages of the outcome just because of understandably.

Why and How Google Data Should be Backed up?

Why should you back up all your Google Data? 

Google stores all your information. If they malfunction, as they did with Gmail a few years ago, you might lose access to your data for a few days or even permanently. In order to have higher reliability and secure your information Yes, you should conduct backups if you’re using Google Drive as a Dropbox alternative. 

How to Back up all your Google Data? 

Let’s begin step by step, as Google data includes a lot of sites. 

  • Google Drive: 

To back up Google Drive data, simply use Google’s Backup and Sync app for this. When you install it, it creates a folder on your desktop or laptop and copies everything from your Google Drive. Any changes you make to the desktop folder are immediately synced to the cloud, and vice versa. 

The only drawback to this strategy is that Google “documents” created in your synchronized folder — your Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and so on — are stored on your device as hyperlinks rather than local documents. To back them up, go to your Google Drive account on the internet, pick them (which you can do in bulk), right-click, and choose “Download.” 

  • Chrome Bookmarks: 

If you’re syncing your Chrome bookmarks from Google and the company closes your account, I’m not sure what will happen to your bookmarks. I’d say they’re still there in your browser, the root of the sync — but it’s never a bad idea to check your bookmark manager (chrome:/bookmarks/ in your address bar). In the upper-right corner, press the triple-dot button to do this, go to “Bookmarks” and pick “Export bookmarks.” 

  • Gmail: 

It’s a quick one: Link your preferred email client to your Gmail account (using IMAP, not POP3). Your desktop client will almost always have a way to backup or export anything in your different folders after you’ve downloaded your email. 

If you do so, you’ll be doubly safe: you’ll have all of your emails on your desktop or laptop, plus a backup folder that you can re-import into any email client if anything goes wrong. 

Just remember to update your web app and sync your Gmail account from time to time. Furthermore, both Windows and Mac have excellent tools for scheduling app launches, so you might set up a schedule that launches your email app every day at noon, for example. 

It should automatically merge your addresses, and you should be all set. And if you run your email client manually (inconsistently), you’ll still have a backup of a significant portion of your old-to-super-old emails. 

  • Google Play Apps, Games and more: 

Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to retrieve all your apps that you have purchased from Google Play if your account is deleted by Google. 

Although it’s likely that you’ll still be able to access the apps and games on your Android, you’ll be restricted to the version that existed before your account was deleted. You won’t be able to update them unless you have a Google Play store account. 

Don’t upset Google if you’ve purchased a couple of items from Google Play and don’t want to miss access to them. Don’t do something about your Google accounts that would make Google say, “hmm,” as it hovers its mighty hand over the account’s “Delete” key.

What to expect in New Version of Microsoft- 2021?

New year always come up with latest updates! Dark mode is the new trend in the Tech World. 

Microsoft Office 2021 is on its way and is expected to have installed a dark mode in it. 

The tech giant will just prefer that all business and users simply subscribe to Microsoft 365, pay a small monthly or annual fee, and get new features and fixes as they’re rolled out. 

We all know that for many users not particularly Office users prefers subscription-based service as it is more convenient and a simple way to get Office. Even for those users who wants to use it as locally installed software. Instead of working on a separate browser or in cloud, but that’s a choice. 

For rest of the people like us—and for those especially who don’t want to put up with the complicated procedures compulsory to install Microsoft Office 365 apps on Remote Desktop Servers. 

Right now, there is Office 2019 and later during this year Office 2021 will be rolling out. Further, a new Office LTSC (Long Term Service Channel) will also be introduced, which will cause a 10 percent price hike but for a guarantee of longer support periods…well, when there is quality, price is not usually a problem- at least for some. Support will be longer than the consumer version of Office 2021. 

The “Long Term Service Channel” version of Office 2021 will have a shorter support life cycle than that enjoyed by previous versions of Office I.e., Office 2019. Office 2019 had a seven-year support window—Office 2021 LTSC will only offer five.  

So far, it is observed and expected that the newest version Office 2021 is focusing more on visual updates. Its apps are going to include a new Dark Mode for those who prefer light text on a dark background. 

Excel is also scheduled to get a few improvements ported in from Office 365, including dynamic arrays and xlookup.  

So far, the screenshots that have been rolling out on the internet, we don’t seem to find much difference in the latest version, but unspecified accessibility improvements are on the way as well.

How to Sync Your iCloud Passwords and Data to Windows

We all are using multiple platforms at a single time and it is not easy to remember all passwords. Hence, it is important to sync them to your Windows, including Apple data.

As far as Apple products are concerned, now there are numerous signs that Apple is ready to cautiously welcoming users of other hardware to its services, including tools for Chrome, Windows, and Android.

Below are few steps to how to get your bookmarks, passwords, and all your other iCloud data on a non-Apple device, since Cloud Backup Storage is a reliable and secure option nowadays.

  • Chrome extensions

Recently, Apple pushed out an iCloud Passwords extension for, which syncs your iCloud password manager to and from Safari on an iPhone, iPad, or Mac. If Safari knows all your login details on your Mac, now Chrome will on Windows. It joins the existing iCloud Bookmarks extension for Chrome and Firefox, which does the same job with bookmarks.

Install either the passwords or the bookmarks extensions and you’ll see that they rely on the existing iCloud for Windows client, which you’ll need to install (if you don’t already have it) to use those browser add-ons. Once you have signed in with your Apple ID credentials, the syncing happens in the background automatically.

You might need to restart your browser after installing the desktop client, but your Chrome or Firefox bookmarks should then match your Safari bookmarks and vice versa, folders and all. There is no interface to the bookmark’s extensions, everything is just handled behind the scenes as if you were using Safari on Windows (or Chrome or Firefox on a Mac).

With the passwords extension, you need to go into the iCloud for Windows desktop client and make sure the Passwords option is ticked, and that the setting is applied—you’ll get a verification code to enter in your browser, and the add-on will then pop up whenever you’re entering login credentials on a site that iCloud recognizes.

  • iCloud for Windows

The iCloud Passwords extension is the newest Windows tool released by Apple, but together with the bookmark’s extension it’s really just a plug-in for the iCloud for Windows client that’s been around for some time. Besides bookmarks and passwords, it can handle your iCloud Drive files, your Apple Photos, and your Apple emails, contacts, calendars, and tasks (through Microsoft Outlook).

The client adds new iCloud Drive and iCloud Photos entries to File Explorer in Windows, so you can easily get at all the images and other files you’ve got stored in iCloud. There are even some sharing options you can access right from within Windows, as well as offline syncing capabilities—right-click on a file and choose Always keep on this device to store a local copy, rather than just a shortcut to the file in iCloud.

Like the new extensions for Google Chrome, everything is designed to just work—there is not much here in the way of customization or configuration. Any new files or folders that you drop into the iCloud folders in File Explorer will make their way to iCloud and across to your Apple devices, just as they would if you had added them on a Mac.

When you will open up the main iCloud for Windows interface, you’ll see there are two Options buttons for photos and storage, covering a limited number of settings, like whether or not shared photo albums are available on your Windows PC, for example, and which browsers your bookmarks get synced to. It is pretty much a set it and forget it situation.

  • iCloud on the web

Apple’s iCloud web portal has slowly been getting better and better, and you might find it easier just to use this rather than installing any extra software on top of Windows. It is also an option for getting your iCloud data on Chromebooks, including emails, contacts, calendars, photos, iCloud Drive, notes, reminders, and even lightweight versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.

When it comes to files, for example, you can use the web interface to manually upload files from Windows, create new folders, and so on—these files then sync to all of your other devices that are also syncing with iCloud. It’s not quite the seamless syncing experience that you get with the desktop client, but it might fit your needs better.

It is also easy enough to upload any photos and videos hanging around on your Windows computer to your Apple Photos library. Files can be viewed right inside your browser, and while it does not reach Google Photos levels of slickness, it is not bad. If you are doing most of your photo management on a Mac or an iPhone and just need to add the occasional file from Windows, iCloud on the web is enough.

With Apple Music now on Android and Apple TV+ accessible in any browser, you can use iCloud and Apple’s services from more devices than ever before—though Apple would of course prefer you to be using iPhones, iPads, and Macs. iTunes for Windows still lags behind the separate Music, TV, and Podcasts applications for macOS at the time of writing, but fingers crossed an update will make that software much more usable in the near future.
