Track Bandwidth Use with VirusBarrier X6

If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.

Internet Explorer Updated

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer Updated -- Microsoft last week released Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0.1, which adds several welcome features. Most notable are the capability to monitor Web sites for changes, an AutoComplete feature that finishes typing URLs for you if you've visited that URL before; site password management that remembers cookies, usernames, and passwords; and a Download Manager that finally downloads files in a download window rather than the main browser window. Internet Explorer 3.0.1 also adds support for Netscape's JavaScript scripting language, gives you the choice of accepting or declining cookies, and offers an AutoSearch that lets you search directly from the Address bar by typing "go" or "?" and then the search keywords. Versions are available for both PowerPC and 68K Macs, and download sizes range from 3.3 MB to 12.3 MB. [ACE]
