I got a free trial copy of Webuser (the no nonsense guide to the best of the net) from freeinuk. It covers a multitude of topics regarding the web or web related topics.
I would have to say that this is probably the best magazine I have seen covering this subject.
In issue 4 it covered web jargon, I knew roughly what Java is but try explaining that to someone who has now idea, this magazine did that. It also had step-by-step guides to: Set up your own firewall Save money by working off line Install AltaVistaís quick search Send pictures in your emails Sort your emails by category Choose a default browser
It also had features on Net auctions, domain names and facts on the net.
IN ISSUE 6 CIAO & DOOYOO GET A 4 OUT OF 5 RATING. That was the highest any information/opinion page got, (page 51 Getting customer advice online) & they equalled the Which rating. We all know how valued Which opinions are.
Issue 6 has information on the best sites for free help to solve computer problems, web etiquette and how to bag a bargain holiday.
It is hard to describe a magazine to you that comes out fortnightly and features and articles will change each issue, however I hope this gives you an overview of the type of topic covered.
I personally have found it very useful. I had to debug both my Dadís and my computer after he shared his virus with me. I knew what antivirus software and firewalls were about but didnít have an up to date version. (No Iím lying I didnít have any Iíd been meaning to for ages but hadnít got around to it. Fortunately Wulise had so I didnít spread it to her) Dad learnt all about firewalls from issue 4.
It is currently on sale for 99p and if you subscribe and pay by direct debit every 6 months it costs £12.87 instead of £15.60. I bought issue 6 at a smallish Tesco store and would therefore assume that most good newsagents and supermarkets would stock it. At 99p itís worth a browse to see what you think.
They also have a web-site, which as yet I have not checked out but the address is www.web-user.co.uk .
I was so impressed that I am going to subscribe to it regularly.
web user is excellent and informative, great oP! kk

Great opinion but I'm not really into these kinda things! I have just updated an opinion on a perfume of mine which I wrote back in January, you rated it fairly helpful, I was wondering whether you would go back and re-read my opinion and maybe re-rate it, thanks and cheers, ~M~

Should your title read "English" instead of "Engligh"?
