Cool Websites and Tips (makeuseof extra #75)

Before I get into our next extra there are couple of things I would like to announce. Firstly, I wanted to tell you that I have added a donate button to the website so if you feel like helping me out covering makeuseof running costs and the occasional pizza, here is your chance.

And secondly, just a quick note regarding posting frequency. Some of you have asked me to increase posting up-to 1 post per day. Sounds great, and I am positive that we’ll be there in the near future. It’s just currently I am working on one new feature for makeuseof and it takes some time. I am keeping it secret for the moment but one thing that I can tell you is that it’s totally worth it and will make several times better.
