Initial Review – Windows 10 Technical Preview

This is going to be a fairly quick, initial and not very deep review of Windows 10 ‘Technical Preview’ build version 9926 (which can be found at the preceding link, at least for now).  And maybe a little disorganized. That’s because any and all things in this version may change at any …

InfiniteWP Addons; Wordfence, Broken Link Checker, Google PageSpeed, Google Webmasters, File Uploader

If you read my blog you may remember my review of the free self-hosted WordPress management software InfiniteWP.
