This means that if we are looking for something to see, we often begin to reproduce some of the content we are positioning ourselves for momentarily. Unfortunately, the US platform does not offer any tuning or configuration options that allow us to disable this feature, but fortunately we can find an expanded extension for Google's web browser to help stop this problem. Of course, as long as we access Netflix from Google Chrome.
The extension to which we refer is called Netflix Classic and is available for download and installation in the Chrome Web Store from the previous link. Once installed, we'll see how the extension solves the problem and Disable autoplay on Netflix. In addition, it will also help us to reduce data consumption if we connected to our mobile data from the PC to see content.
Netflix Classic also brings us other improvements because it is able to remember our user profile and of course, it does not deprive us of any other functionality of the platform.

From there, the company decided what they would be facing at the beginning and many new features will come to Microsoft Edge in a few weeks. Of all, it should be noted that the browser will have a dark mode or theme, Bing Translator Translation Technologymany others Control settings and privacy settingsas well as new options allowing the user to choose the information he wants to delete when the browser is closed. For all this, it also joins the read mode option, account synchronization, and so on.
As confirmed by the Microsoft Edge team, Edge Canary could also improve the automatic locking of multimedia playback, the travel experience and could have a new favorite button. In other words, the new version of the browser could include a button that allows us to automatically prevent the reproduction of videos and audio from a website as soon as we visit it, as well as a button in the bar tools for quick access to our bookmarks or favorites. favorite sites. News that would arrive at Edge Canary in the next month September.
But the thing does not remain alone there, because a few weeks later, during the month of OctoberMicrosoft plans to include other features in the Canarian version of the browser. On this occasion, the picture of our user profile It will be updated when we connect to the browser and when we have multiple profiles, Edge will allow us to manage links and attachments with the profile we want.
We can also activate the search for extension In the Microsoft Insider Edge Extensions store, the error that frequently appears to users with the message that administrator mode has been detected, and so on. will be corrected. Among the sources of information, other requests for functions emanating from users are also mentioned, which Microsoft would already evaluate to deal with in the future.
Although Microsoft stopped developing Edge with EdgeHTML and began using Chromium as an engine, Microsoft's browser had some advantages over Chrome, including lower power consumption when viewing videos in the browser. Navigator. Thanks to this, the battery lasted several hours to do the same taskas the company showed in a video This brought a lot of controversy.
This difference seems to be due to the so-calledstreaming media caching", Or the caching of streaming media content, which keeps the storage unit active during the process of acquiring and playing back a streaming video, even if it's n & rsquo; It is necessary to access it only for a few seconds to store the contents. As a result, some low power modes are not enabled in the operating system.
For example, by using a chrome flag, this option could be disabled to minimize streaming content on the disk as much as possible, reducing battery consumption through caching that has not been done. no need to happen.
Disabling the function also has another disadvantage. Although the implementation of Media Source in the browser allows you to store some of the cache in the memory of content that we have already read, going back several minutes may require the video to download again this piece on the Internet, This increases data consumption and can be dangerous if you use a connection with a limited number of gigabytes. The battery saving is 62 mW for the main battery rail, in addition to reduce the write activity of 309 KB / s, which will help increase the life of your SSD.
To take advantage of this new battery saving feature, we need to install the latest version of Chrome Canary (with 78.0.3887.0, it already works). Once we have it, we go to the address chrome: // flags / # turn-off-streaming-media-cachingand we give to activated. This will no longer stop writing content unnecessarily to the disc. It does not make sense to do it on a desktop, but on a laptop, we will get some major improvements. As in Chrome Canary, the feature can be enabled in Edge Canary.

This decision was made in Australia after Netflix, in collaboration with other major companies and studios such as Roadshow Films, Disney and Columbia, starts the battle against more than 100 different domains associated with torrent downloads and other websites similar blocked by local ISP.
The site in question blocked offered the series Santa Clarita Diet and Stranger Things through hacker downloads, Netflix has taken legal action against the site. This movement was led by the American platform itself but followed by Roadshow Movies and supported by Disney, Universal City Studios, Warner Bross, Limited TV Shows, TVBO and Madman Anime Group. Once again, it is confirmed that the success and popularity of content automatically become the target of this type of pirate sites, as was the case recently with the famous HBO series, since Game of Thrones has licensed hacking and illegal downloads worldwide.
All of these companies unanimously asked for the blocking of more than 130 domains linked to about 90 torrents sites, streaming sites and similar sites. A few months later, Justice Thawley of the Federal Court ordered the first blocking of a hacking website offering Netflix content.
As a result, Australian Internet Service Providers having authorized access to this site, including Vodafone, will have to take appropriate steps to comply with the shutdown. For that, have a total of 15 daysSo, in two weeks, they will have to put in place the necessary measures for such a blockage.
Although this is only the first step in trying to stop this series of non-legal practices on the Internet, it is clear that after this sentence, this first case is just the beginning of many sites that could also be blocked by offer Netflix series, movies and other companies in the form of hacking on the Internet.
However, it can not be said that it works as well as many would like, so it is sometimes better to take advantage of third-party solutions in these leaders to avoid problems and data loss. That is why one of the most effective proposals of this type is a extension that we can use both in the mentioned Firefox as in Google Chromewe mean Session Manager tab.
It's a complement that will help us save the tabs and windows sessions with the browser and do not lose anything because of unexpected problems. Specifically, we are talking about a small program added to these browsers that automatically saves windows and tabs so we can not lose them. Once installed, the add-on adds a new icon to the toolbar which gives us a context menu with all the recent browsing sessions you have saved.
Thus, each session that the extension saves alone adds details such as last name eyelashes active, the total number of tabs, or the date and time of saving the session. At the same time, we will have the option to open this session that has been stored or delete it. Therefore, if the equipment stops suddenly or if Navigator it is closed or locked without waiting, when you click open in the extension we are talking about, a new window opens and the full list of registered tabs is loaded.
Of course, we have the ability to customize its behavior from the configuration section, which will allow us to change the behavior of the open button. At the same time, we can save the the contents of the private windows, set the time interval for automatic recording, the number of sessions to store simultaneously, and so on.
Finally, we will say that we have the opportunity to import sessions spent to be stored here, which will be very useful if we work with this extension on several computers, as well as export them.
That's why Microsoft itself expects this end of free support for Windows 7, serve as a trigger for many "latecomers" to finally migrate to Windows 10 and make use of all its virtues. With everything and with all this, it is certain that many will remain reluctant, because for one reason or another, a lot of the regulars of Windows 7 refuse to make the modification, which those of Redmond they do not understand or share, for granted.
Many are the advantages that since Microsoft They want to "sell" to the undecided in order to migrate once and for all to Windows 10, elements that they will not find in Windows 7 and that they are describing as dangerous operating system. Among these features of the most modern version of software, special emphasis is placed on Security offered now, largely thanks to the solution Windows Defender, or constant updates that Windows 10 receives.
It is true that the most recent version of the system offers us a series of elements and functions that Windows 7 can not offer, although many are still wary of new windows. This is largely due to the fact that they consider that it consumes too much resources, it is a violation of the confidentiality users, and includes a good amount of totally useless features.
While those in Redmond want to use one of the elements they consider fundamental to allow users to change their minds, we refer to the official system store, Microsoft Storeit is becoming one of the main headaches of society. And since the beginning of Windows 10, there was summer 2015In addition to being used as a claim, the company wanted this store to be one of the main attractions of the operating system for both users and application developers.
But after more than four years of existence, things do not work, let alone, as the software giant had planned in this regard. In addition, one could say that over time, external application developers are increasingly wary of the Windows 10 Store. At this point, we must keep in mind that these creators of content must, in many cases, make an additional effort to adapt their developments to the above objectives. shopwhich does not always compensate for them, as we have seen.
In fact and seen by all, it seems that the acceptance, growth and success of the official store The system backs up instead of the reverse, as expected by Microsoft. We have just learned that one of the most representative third-party applications UWP Version in the Store, decided to remove it from this place. In particular, we refer to the popular platform of multimedia content management, Plex.
It is a tool used all over the world and that rivals the same known Kodi, which facilitates management and access to all types of content sultimedia, especially with regard to the online mode of use. Those responsible for the application have decided to leave the Windows 10 UWP platform to focus on a new desktop version. Win32 of your tool
And they consider, like many developers other than Microsoft, that this adapted version too limits the use and functionality of applications, to which is added the extra effort to make for adaptation. This is an opinion that is gradually spreading among many creators of applications, who prefer to concentrate all their efforts on the Win32 versions which are downloaded from the Web, which in the UWP for the Microsoft Store.
Of course, this can become a major problem for the software giantPlus, if we consider any operating system worthy of the name, it must have an official and powerful application store. In addition, a lot of the security-related moves in Windows 10 made by Redmond, in part, they want to focus on the exclusive use of the System Store, which is becoming more and more complicated.
Are you a regular user of UWP applications hosted by the Windows 10 Microsoft Store?
