Microsoft updates FrontPage beta

It's expected to be released as part of the next version of the Office suite in mid-2001. It provides new tools for Web site creation, control, and management, according to the software giant.

With FrontPage 10, you can create and customise the Photo Gallery feature to display photos and images, Microsoft says. You can select different customisable layouts, add captions, reorder and edit images, and switch layouts. Using another feature, the automatic Web content application, you can also insert content and update a Web site without having to edit it.

Impromptu Management Tools

The software also contains updated site management features to track how visitors use a Web site, which pages get the most hits, and how they were referred to it. You can insert a top-10 list of the most popular pages on the Web site, and view the results according to different criteria. Those criteria include pages visited most often, referring domains, referring URLs, search strings, and visitors. The list is automatically refreshed whenever someone visits the page.

Some other new features enable you to collaborate and create Web sites to store, find, and share information, documents, and Web pages, according to Microsoft. With the SharePoint team-collaboration application, you and colleagues also can create intranet pages on the fly, editing content straight from a browser. You can control the appearance and functioning of your HTML code by reformatting HTML pages, specifying colour-coding tags, and indenting tags.

A new paste feature lets you choose among formatting from the source page, in the existing Web page, or as text, when you paste content from other applications.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
