Welcome to computerexplained.com. The goal of this website is to make computers less confusing and more interesting to smart and curious people like you!

Computers can be confusing, and we want to change that. We believe it is absolutely possible for anyone with a little bit of curiosity to gain a high level understanding of what makes computers possible. With computerexplained.com, you don’t need a university degree to know what is the difference between a firewall and an antivirus, or why you are supposed to clear your cache when your browser acts weird. You will also get a chuckle the next time a popular article says something like “256 is an oddly specific number“!

Our motto is to give a glimpse into the various corners of the world of computers, and we think everyone will find something interesting regardless of their skill or experience level. We hope you enjoy reading our content as much as we enjoy writing it.
