One awesome thing about the Internet is that you have the ability to find incredible talent captured in videos from all around the world. Whether it’s YouTube or another video website, you can spend hours watching videos. Have you ever looked up motorcycle videos?

7 Tools That Will Revolutionize Your Music Listening Habits On The Web

Listing to music online has been around for some time, but only in the past little while, has it really become mainstream with so many options to choose from. It really is quite incredible – we have the opportunity to find music like never before, and listen to copious amounts of it! But there are still some gaps to fill. For instance, audio files can be embedded into webpages, but those webpages have no way to listen to all the music.

Grammarly Lite – A Browser Extension For All Your Proofreading Needs [Chrome, Firefox, Safari]

How do you currently proofread what you type on your computer? Type it in Google? Paste it into Word? Or do you use a proofreading website that you paste your text into? I am definitely guilty of copying and pasting (or just typing) a word into Google Search to double check my spelling. But there’s a better way – a tool that integrates into your browser and almost all websites across the Internet.

Black Menu: Access All Google Services Within A Single Menu [Chrome]

Let’s face it – Google is awesome. If you’re like me, you use it for everything: emailing, scheduling, file storage, navigation, apps, your browser (Chrome), etc. But there’s one major problem – how do you easily access those apps and services? Google’s solution is a black bar across the screen. I’m not really a big fan of that, plus I can’t customize it. So what’s a better solution? How about one button for all the services?

Actually, it has already been around for several months now and has built quite a user base of “currently” over 120,000 users. The extension is called Currently and it is a fast loading “theme” for your New Tab page.

How To Become A Chrome Power User, Part 2: Bookmarks, Settings & Extensions

Google Chrome has built a huge user base that other competing browsers could only dream about. And although there are still some good alternatives, Chrome still has won many of us over. If you’ve coming here from part one of this series, welcome! If this is the first article you’re reading, you don’t have to read part one first as this one can stand alone by itself. That said, you still should read it as using keyboard shortcuts is a huge asset to Chrome.

How To Become A Chrome Power User, Part 1 – Master The Keyboard

Google Chrome for some time has been the browser of choice for many and although the majority of our web browsers can do some pretty impressive things, Chrome has continued to snatch up power users, one after another.

20 Evernote Search Features You Should Be Using

It’s one thing to use Evernote, but it’s entirely another thing to master Evernote.

KustomNote: Experience Evernote Like Never Before With Custom Templates

There often isn’t a lot mentioned about the actual organization within notes. Evernote provides the basic tools in its simple text editing interface, but wouldn’t it be nice to create more of a structured environment within Evernote? That is possible, but it’s not the easiest of tasks and is rather cumbersome. There’s an easier way – KustomNote.
