    QSnipps is just what i need in my web programming. It get annoying and tedious to type the same code in again and again, or using copy paste. QSnipps really helps me with that! Thanks :D & DeTexify looks like a students dream, if you can’t remeber what a certain symbol is named.

    Thanks, Aibek.
    While non eof the above sites prove to be immediately useful, the MUO article on Detaxify led me to TypeIt.org which offers browser based virtual keyboards for languages with accented letters. Now if I want to write posts in French, Swedish or Polish, I can do it on the fly, without having an app installed on my PC.
