#4. On the next page, a greenish download button will be provided indicating the file size. Click there.


#5. You will see a page like the above image (see background). After a few moments, the file will be started downloading. (I am using Internet Download Manager. That’s why I got an additional dialogue box).


#6. The download process will take some time according to your internet speed. When the downloading gets completed, open the set- up file (the one you have just installed) and proceed with the installation.

Hey, congrats. Mission accomplished. You can now use Safari on your Windows machine now.

The following are some of the remarkable features of Safari web browser.

#1. Elegant User Interface

The UI of Apple products allures everyone. Safari web browser is not an exception. Its minimal interface helps you focus on the web content rather than on the browser itself.

Every one of us makes use of search bar in browsers. What if you want to land on the search results page by a single click even though you are pages away from it? Snapback button on Safari helps you to do the same.

Not every website allows you to resize the text fields. But if you use Safari, you can resize any text area even though the site does not permit it.

How to Boost Wifi Signal




Today’s people hate three things the most, poor wifi range, low battery and intertwined earphone wires. Technology has influenced our lives that much.

All of us are aware of wifi technology. We also know that wifi signal strength determines the speed of the network. So, to get a faster internet, you should make sure that the signal strength of wifi is maximum. If it’s not, you have to increase wifi signal.

That’s why I am here today with yet another useful article dealing with how to boost wifi signal.

Are you ready? Here we go!

How to Boost Wifi Signal?

Boosting wifi signal is not a Herculean task. A little technical knowledge is required nothing else. If you are ready to spend some bucks for it, you can expect much more good results.

Read on further to know how to extend wifi range.

#1. Use the Best Hardware


As we all know, a wifi signal transmitter should be required for you to get the wifi signals. You can’t get connected to the internet via wifi with a non- wireless router. If you are obsessed with cheap stuff, you may probably buy that wireless router with the least possible cost.

But I recommend you to go for quality over price. Be it overpriced or underpriced, buy a better modem regarding quality.

Tons of routers are there from of hundreds of companies. So, read reviews online, watch videos and then, make the purchase decision.

As a person who is looking for how to improve wifi signal, you should bear this point in mind and act accordingly.

#2. Reboot Your Router on a Schedule


You may face the network issues with the router. Often, you may have to restart the router to get connected to the web. If you set your router to reboot on a schedule, this issue can be solved quickly.

A simple Google search fetches you the tests that can be done to make sure that the network problem is not caused by excess downloading, heating or firmware problems. Nevertheless, automating the reboot process is worth it.

DD- WRT firmware helps you doing this. You have to flash the router with this tool. Obviously, it’s harmful to the hardware if you choose the high configuration.

#3. Relocate the Router


If you want to know how to increase wifi signal without shelling out bucks, you should do this step. Sometimes, the position of routers becomes an obstacle for the transmission of signals. So, try to change it to a more convenient space.

It’s always good to place your modem or router at a location, which is at a height from the ground. Higher the position better will be the transmission.

And, you have to make sure that nothing blocks the signal from being transmitted. For example, you might have placed the router near to walls. It may block the signal.

So, you should place it at an open space without any obstacles or interference. Also, make sure that it is elevated from the ground.

If you want the signal all around in your house, make sure that the router is placed at the center of your house. It will be helpful to transmit an equal amount of signals to all the directions.

#4. Change Your Wifi Channel


Most of the wireless routers transmit signals at 2.4 GHz. It is the same for your neighbor also. If your neighbor also has a wifi connection, chances are high for your router to have degraded signals due to the interference from the signals of another router. That’s why you have to change the wifi channel of your router.

But wifi routers can be operated over several channels. Use a tool like wifi analyzer or wifi stumbler to understand which channel works for you the best. Then, change the channel of your hardware into it.

You now got another answer to the question how to boost your wifi signal.

#5. Avoid Interference from other Appliances

Wifi router is not the only device that makes use of signals. Cordless phones, microwaves, and other appliances can be interference for your router as they also transmit wireless signals. In case it contradicts with the signal from your router, you can’t get enough signal strength.

So, either you have to change the channels, or you should buy another hardware that makes use of another channel.

If you can’t do any of the above methods, the only thing left to do that helps improving wifi signal is keeping your router as far as possible from that type of appliances. It will help you to decrease the interference caused by them.

#6. Password Protect Your Wifi Connection

An open wifi is not ideal for better speed. Everyone is keen on getting a wifi connection. So, people utilize your network if they find it to be unprotected.

That’s why you should protect your connection with a strong password. And, it has become easy to crack wifi passwords. Hence, you have to change the password often to make things complicated.

#7. Buy a Repeater

A repeater can be bought at a cheaper price. You don’t have to shell out  too much money to buy one. What a repeater does is transmitting the signal it gets.

If you find the Wifi signal doesn’t reach a particular corner of your house, consider using a repeater to boost that signal!

If you are not willing to buy hardware for this purpose, you can convert an old router into a repeater using that DD- WRT firmware that I mentioned earlier.

#8. Regulate Bandwidth Stealing Applications

Check every device that is connected to your wifi connection for bandwidth stealing background applications. That may be torrents, video calling or gaming applications. Also, make sure that no one is using them.

If you find such apps, don’t hesitate to close it right away.

Boosting Your Wifi Signal is Easy, isn’t it?

You now know how to boost wifi signal as I have given you eight methods to do so.

If you face any problem regarding this, do let me know in the comment section down below. I am sure that you will not forget to share this with your social media fellas.

Soon after Spotify was released the application started getting a lot of downloads and quite a few paid subscriptions which were quite decent for any product to start with. This went on for a while and there was a rivalry between the two companies Apple and Spotify which led to Spotify informing all its users not to buy paid subscriptions from Apple store.


The strategic alliance between Apple and Spotify was made on the lines of sharing 30% of the product revenue. Spotify chose to reduce the subscription charges after the rivalry broke out and went to an extent of sending emails to all the users asking them not to buy paid subscriptions from Apple as that would lead to Apple taking away 30% of the share. It clearly stated that users could save money by buying it from the official website spotify.com.

The reports said that the original application was priced at $9.99 by Spotify but Apple was charging 30% more through the Apple store. This led to the Apple decision of releasing Apple music and now Apple music stands out to be a direct competitor to Spotify in the market for online streaming.
