About the site

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

We publish timeless pieces of information on the fundamentals of how computers work, and also timely updates on current affairs that may be of interest to a broad audience. We passionately believe in explaining the terms, concepts and relationships of computers to everyday users.

Computer geeks can sometimes be annoying in their use of elaborate set of concepts and over-complicating things. We want to change that — we believe it is absolutely possible for anyone with a little bit of curiosity to learn the intricate details that makes computers work.

With computerexplained.com, you don’t need a Computer Science 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.

Our motto is to give you 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. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to ask a question, have a suggestion or just want to say hi!
