My image TubeMote – YouTube has recently introduced a great “lean back” feature that lets you enjoy videos without much intervention. However, the process doesn’t give you a whole lot of control over your watching experience. TubeMote, however, can let you turn any device with a browser into a remote control so you can enjoy YouTube even when sitting on your couch.

My image Punchcast – Internet users create accounts on many websites. For security reasons, it is a wise practice to keep different passwords for different accounts. But as your number of accounts increases, the passwords become increasingly difficult to remember. A solution for this is presented by Punchcast Password Generator.
My image PingBrigade – Every website aims to get as much traffic as it can, and so because of this, every website is in competition with other sites of the same genre. To make sure your website is preferred by visitors, you can run a series of tests that determine your site’s superiority over the competition. Ping Brigade is one source through which you can carry out such tests.

Fortunately, Hipmunk is a great flight search engine alternative that offers visually-oriented flight schedule results, thus making them more organized and easier to understand.

    Well let's face it - 3 simple tests is not a series of test:) Although the visual effects make this tool better than other similar ones.
