Passwords are a hassle, and unfortunately, they’re often a security risk.

7 Great New Features Coming To Thunderbird 102
https://blog.thunderbird.net/2022/05/7-great-new-features-coming-to-thunderbird-102/

I actually don't actually see anything in that list that I actually need and some I certainly wouldn't want 'Preview' being one example.  I feel this could be used as a web beacon to confirm receipt.

#5: Import/Export Wizard
I'm not sure this what I have been hoping for, as it appears to be about importing/exporting from/to another email program.
What I'm looking for is a way to easily backup Thunderbird, all of your emails, profile settings, etc. to external disc/USB, etc. in the event of a computer problem, where you aren't able to access the computer to Import/Export.

Another Microsoft Edge skill
that Google Chrome doesn't have.

Edge browser now has an easier way to manage web apps,
and more improvements are planned.

What Does Google Know About You

If you have a Google account (Who doesn't?) go to the following web address
and find out  what Google knows about you. The good thing is, you can adjust
what Google collects. By default, they collect virtually everything.

A collection of classic but essential (and free!) utilities
for Windows 10 and 11.
Nice to see so many "Avast" products in the mix
considering Security products aren't part of the mix.

Another handy tip, I knew about Ctrl key and + or - keys, but not the Ctrl key and scroll wheel.
