My image   DiffChecker – Finding the difference in two files can be helpful in a number of situations. For example if you have two files of code, with similar functions, you can find out the text differences of the files and learn more about each code. DiffChecker is one site that lets you easily compare two files for text differences. Read more: DiffChecker: Find Text Differences Between Two Files.

My image   BanRace – With so many countries banning social networks nowadays, it is hard to keep track of the bans. If you want to know what networks a specific country has banned and why, just check out BanRace. It is a great interactive tool that starts by displaying different countries on a world map. Countries with at least some banning activity are highlighted. Read more: BanRace: See Which Country Blocks Social Networking Sites & Why.
 
My image   [NO LONGER WORKS] LightShot – is one of the lightest screen capture tools available. It works as a desktop client as well as an add-on for major browsers including Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer. Once installed, just click the little LightShot icon whenever you want to capture an image. Then select the area you want to capture.
 
My image   Stay – Lots of websites tell you what to do, where to stay and where to eat in a new city but very few let you create a customized guide. Stay.com is a unique site that not only offers lots of information about your new destination, but also lets you add each item such as hotels, bars and attractions to a personal, printable travel guide.

    stay.com looks like a nice website, but there is like 3 destinations covered. Every (and i mean every) city i tried searching was not there.

    As of this moment, your link to Ban Race is broken. I think you need an ending forward slash.

    Also, Ban Race site is ridiculous. The info-graphic implies that the entire USA has banned some sites, when in fact it was just banned within the Pentagon (or within the military perhaps). That is just stupid. I'm sure that in the majority of country you can find *some* government organization that has blocked or 'banned' certain websites within the organization. Not only is the info-graphic misleading, but the details text doesn't even make it very clear. The first sentence is "Unfortunately, Hi5 was also one of the sites to be banned by the Pentagon". For an unknowing reader, that can easily imply that the Pentagon has the power to ban a site from the entire USA.
