推荐理由:Git 是一个 “分布式版本管理工具”,简单的理解版本管理工具:大家在写东西的时候都用过 “回撤” 这个功能,但是回撤只能回撤几步,假如想要找回我三天之前的修改,光用 “回撤” 是找不回来的。而 “版本管理工具” 能记录每次的修改,只要提交到版本仓库,你就可以找到之前任何时刻的状态(文本状态)。本项目列举了常用的 Git 命令和一些小技巧。

推荐理由:最近,微软开发的Edge浏览器逐渐扩大对浏览器的市场的占有。Edge浏览器的前身IE浏览器已经被微软丢入历史的垃圾堆,之前的Edge Legacy版本也将被微软彻底抛弃。在windows更新中,Edge Legacy会被移除电脑,新版Edge浏览器将会是windows10的默认浏览器。

Microsoft to wipe out old Edge browser with Windows 10 security update

Microsoft will yank its old Edge browser out of Windows 10 PCs on April 13, an important step in its yearslong effort to move its immense customer base to a modern browser.

Two decades ago, the software giant’s Internet Explorer crushed competitors like Netscape Navigator and dominated the market, but Microsoft let the software languish. Newer rivals like Firefox and Chrome seized the initiative, and Apple’s Safari began a revolution in mobile browsers. Microsoft couldn’t keep up, even after trying to strip IE down into a modernized Edge, so it moved Edge to Google Chrome’s open-source Chromium foundation. It renamed the earlier Edge as Edge Legacy.

IE has been a relic for years, but now Edge Legacy also is going on the software scrap heap. On Friday, Microsoft announced that a Windows security update will install the new Edge, if it hasn’t already been installed, and remove Edge Legacy. The new Edge already is the default browser on the latest Windows 10 version.

Microsoft has dramatically changed its stance on browsers over the years. Where it once saw them as a threat to Windows, a rival software foundation that runs on any device, it’s now embraced browsers. On PCs, they’re the most widely used software, and browser-based apps help Microsoft extend its services beyond Windows.

Microsoft released the first test version of the new Edge for public testing in April 2019 and released the first stable version in January 2020. The software is similar to Google’s dominant Chrome, relying on its core software, but includes differences like a vertical tab arrangement and collections to house information you gather while on the web.

It’s also built Edge features like improved search designed to help Microsoft’s sizable population of business users.
