推薦理由:Git 是一個 「分散式版本管理工具」,簡單的理解版本管理工具:大家在寫東西的時候都用過 「回撤」 這個功能,但是回撤只能回撤幾步,假如想要找回我三天之前的修改,光用 「回撤」 是找不回來的。而 「版本管理工具」 能記錄每次的修改,只要提交到版本倉庫,你就可以找到之前任何時刻的狀態(文本狀態)。本項目列舉了常用的 Git 命令和一些小技巧。

推薦理由:最近,微軟開發的Edge瀏覽器逐漸擴大對瀏覽器的市場的佔有。Edge瀏覽器的前身IE瀏覽器已經被微軟丟入歷史的垃圾堆,之前的Edge Legacy版本也將被微軟徹底拋棄。在windows更新中,Edge Legacy會被移除電腦,新版Edge瀏覽器將會是windows10的默認瀏覽器。

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.
