Take & Share Screenshots At Lightning Speed With ScreenSnapr [Windows]

When I discovered ScreenSnapr, it’s sort of like the clouds opened up in the sky.

Automate Repetitive Forms And Registrations In A Snap With Autofill Forms [Firefox]

If there’s any downside to working online, it’d have to be the repetitive tasks that hit you in the face on a daily basis.

3 Sites To Study The Roots Of Your Favorite Artists & Songs

Life without music is a life that would be much less enjoyable for most of us. Even before smartphones and iPods, we were finding ways to listen to our favorite songs everywhere we go through classics like the Walkman.

3 Online Tools To Defend Yourself Against Cheaters At Word Games

Don’t you just hate it when you’re in the middle of a great Words With Friends game and someone manages to luck out with a word like “atropine”? Maybe it’s only frustrating when the rest of their words up until that point were elementary level. Either way, cheating sucks.
