The easiest way for visitors to navigate your Web site is with keywords. Creating a search engine from scratch is difficult, but there are plenty of options.

Feed your face

Jason Whittaker picks up from where Will Head left off last month, and shows you how to apply RSS feeds to your Web site.

Flash in the pan

Macromedia's flagship product is the ultimate in Web multimedia, but it's expensive. As luck would have it, some of the cheaper alternatives are also more effective.

Customer relationships

Intuit is known for its Quicken range of finance software, but QuickBooks Customer Manager represents a new departure for the company. As well as managing inventory and accounts, Intuit hopes that it will become the first point of contact for dealing...

Internet: Visual appeal

One way to draw visitors into your Web site is to make it look as attractive as possible. But what's the best image format to use?

Stress-free surfing

Browse the web without worrying about prying eyes and ne'er-do-wells. PC World shows you how to minimise or disable pop-ups, as well as how to avoid dangerous viruses and irritating trojans.

Video editing and effects

It has only been a short while since Discreet attempted to move into the mid-range professional market with the first release of Combustion, a compositor and video-effects tool that offered many of the features available in Flame (the package used in...

BrowseControl Internet blocking software

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
