    Are There Any Full Screen Themes For Opera?

    Delta, I don't know if you remember me from years ago but I certainly remember you - always so helpful! And yes, I noticed there is not much traffic here anymore...what happened? Where did everyone go? :( This is the only Mac forum I am a member of.

    Permissions Repair Frees Up Memory Like "purge" Terminal Command?!

    Sorry! I didn't see the clickable link at first in the "here." Well, I guess that's out of the question too because I don't want to send my laptop out to have the SSD replaced, and I am certainly not about to attempt something like that on my own - that would be disastrous. lol Thank you both...

    If A Browser Stops Supporting Your Os, Are You In Danger???

    I've read articles about Opera no longer supporting Snow Leopard...I've read other articles that says it IS still active and supporting Snow Leopard. Conflicting resources. Can someone PLEASE tell me for sure what's going on? Also, if it's true that Opera no longer supports Snow Leopard, am I...

    Permissions Repair Frees Up Memory Like "purge" Terminal Command?!

    By "upgrading to a newer, faster SSD" you mean buy a new computer, correct? Unfortunately, that is out of the question for me right now but I hope to do that in the near future. That said, is the Activity Monitor and info I gave "normal" for an old computer such as mine?

    Permissions Repair Frees Up Memory Like "purge" Terminal Command?!

    Hi again, Delta! As always, I love your replies - very helpful and enjoyable to read. Yes, it is MY responsibility to free up that memory! lol Just kidding. Seriously ok, here is my reply… Do I have a problem such as my system slowing down during use? When I was running Chrome and Firefox…YES...

    Permissions Repair Frees Up Memory Like "purge" Terminal Command?!

    Activity Monitor stats: 19 MB free memory (only a sliver of green) page ins: 68 GB page outs: 15 GB swap used: 2 GB So because of those atrocious numbers on my old Macbook Air (OS 10.6), I've been reading all these articles about how to free up memory using the Terminal "purge"...

    Does Onyx Clear All Browser Caches?

    Been using Onyx for ages and love it but just the other day I had a thought...it says it clears browser cache but WHICH browser? If you have more than 1 browser installed, how does it know which 1 to clear...or does it automatically clear all? If it clears all, I'm guessing all browsers have...

    Are There Any Full Screen Themes For Opera?

    I've been browsing the Opera add-on themes but can't find any that covers the FULL screen. I don't know how to explain it but they only show when you open a new tab...they don't show on the address bar, bookmarks bar, toolbar, etc. when you're browsing the web. I hope this makes sense! There are...

    Please Recommend A New Browser For Old Macbook Air!

    Hi Delta! Yes, I checked into Roccat and iCab and they didn't make the shortlist. I don't remember why now...been researching so many browsers I lost track. They were probably either no longer supporting my OS or they were not secure to use for my OS due to lack of updates. I am thoroughly...

    Any New Thoughts On Older Opera Version For Os 10.6?

    I had to find a new browser since I didn't want to switch OS. I love 10.6 and want to stay with it (especially after reading horror stories about newer OS on older Macs such as mine) since Chrome will no longer be supported and same with Safari. I didn't want to go with Firefox because it just...

    Please Recommend A New Browser For Old Macbook Air!

    Hi MisterMe, Thanks for your reply. My answer is: After extensive research + reviews + Apple discussions + computer specs, RAM, disk space, etc., I have decided it's best for me to stick with Snow Leopard as it's a much better browser suited for my computer. Btw, I found an OPERA version for...

    Please Recommend A New Browser For Old Macbook Air!

    I have to find a new (free) browser. Come April, Chrome will no longer support OS 10.6, so I can't use that. And I don't want to use Firefox because it doesn't work well on my computer for some reason (just please trust me on that - I've tried it several times...it lags, it's slow, and it eats...

    Can you PLEASE help with video chat via Mac to Chromebook?

    My friend has a Samsung Chromebook; I have a Mac and I use Skype. There is no Skype app for Chromebook. Is there an alternative app that he can download that will allow us to still Skype? If not, what are the alternatives? I can download another video chat program for my computer (one that...

    Why does my laptop suddenly shut down when battery drains instead of going to sleep??

    Delta, thank you so much. I must have missed that one line at the bottom when I read the manual. lol I never knew that about MacBook Airs. I will no longer be calibrating (draining) my battery so often. Thanks again, you are a wealth of knowledge! Edit: Still reading those links at the bottom...

    Why does my laptop suddenly shut down when battery drains instead of going to sleep??

    I was under the impression that calibrating would prolong battery life, not lessen it. I was also under the impression that keeping your laptop plugged in was not good for the battery life either. Are these things not true? I'm very confused now.

    Why does my laptop suddenly shut down when battery drains instead of going to sleep??

    Hi, Delta. I only have 752 charge cycles. And I don't think it's an issue of battery life/health because I still get easily 4 hours of battery juice on a full charge.

    Why does my laptop suddenly shut down when battery drains instead of going to sleep??

    I have a MacBook Air (late 2011 model). When I continue to use it until the battery drains (to calibrate it), it used to just sleep when the battery drained, but lately it's been shutting down completely. Why? Should I be concerned? BTW, iStat says battery health is at 87%, so I wouldn't think...
