Google Chrome Turns 15

Google Chrome

Google Chrome is one of, if not the most, popular browser on the web today.  This September, Chrome is turning 15.   To celebrate, Google is giving the browser a look and feel redesign.  The design of the browser is going to have much more rounded corners, new colors and Google is introducing a new sidebar concept, including access to Google’s AI, Bard.

Google has not officially set a version for when these new updates are coming out, but look for them soon.  Read more about these changes at Ars Technica.

CU*Answers is updating our Web Hosting Terms of Service

Celebrating 20 Years

CU*Answers Web Services is updating our Terms of Service.  These new Terms of Service will automatically take effect on October 1st for existing website clients and immediately for any new clients that join our system.

The intention of this update is to clarify some language as technology and other requirements have changed over time.

Some of the notable changes to the Terms of Service include:

  • Removed the 1 year minimum term for all new websites.
  • Explicit statement that CU*Answers requires certain plugins to be installed on your site to maintain security, auditability and performance.
  • Explicit statement that CU*Answers requires administrative access to all sites hosted on our shared hosting servers for support and troubleshooting.
  • Requirement that all third-party code, such as themes and plugins, need to be kept current for security and compatibility with the underlying webhosting software.
  • Further clarification regarding using our shared hosting platform for personally identifiable information and other content restrictions.

You may review the entire Terms of Service online at

WordPress 6.3 Scheduled for Second Week of August


The first release candidate for WordPress 6.3 arrived a few days ago and is expected to be finalized on August 8th, 2023. This will be the second major release of 2023 and will come with significant new features and improvements mostly focusing on the new Site Editor process.

CU*Answer Web Services has been testing the Site Editor method of building new website with a couple of current in development sites with some mixed results.  As this new tool continues to mature, we anticipate it becoming a bigger part of future projects.  Other enhancements in the new WordPress version include changes and updates to Gutenberg, blocks and block patterns.  See this article on for a full list of major updates.

CU*Answers Web Services will automatically be updating all client sites to the new version once the release is finalized.  This will happen during our normal weekly update processes.

Staying Secure with Passwords


We all know that having secure passwords are important. CU*Answers Web Services has been reminding you for years.  And it’s certainly a recurring theme over at our Online Safety and Identity Theft Awareness website CU*Secure.

Good, secure passwords are longer, they have a mix of characters, numbers and symbols.  They don’t use personal information or dictionary words.  Those are pretty standard guidelines we all use.

So, today, here’s something a little fun instead.  Let’s take the rules to the extreme.  The Password Game has been going around all the technology news sites this week.  It’s for fun and a little absurd.  I made it to rule 13 before giving up.

Have fun, check it out at
