Know more about a website

There's now an easier way to find information about a website. With QuarkBase, you can find everything about a website. Hit a search and you'll get details about it like it's founder/co-founder, internet traffic, company, location (with a Google Map), address, number of visitors, etc. You can also find stuff relating to pagerank, which countries the website is famous in, it's social popularity, list of similar sites and a screenshot of the website too. Well, screenshot sounds obvious when you're getting so much of info.


Use a disposable Email address to keep away the SPAM!

We give our E-mail IDs to every website we register. This is given so that we receive a confirmation E-mail from the website which by clicking would complete the registration. As a return gift, our mailboxes are flooded with advertisements, offers and more such (junk)mails. This can be a pain in the neck.

Solution: Use a disposable E-mail ID.

10MinuteMail is a website where you can get a disposable E-mail ID which would last for 10 minutes. Along with generating email IDs, it also has an inbox wherein you can receive your confirmation mails. And still, if you feel that 10 minutes isn't sufficient, you can ask for 10 more minutes. You can use this time to complete your registrations. And you'll never be bothered by the site ever again!


Get Quick Facts from FacteryLabs

If you're looking for quick facts about almost anything, then FacteryLabs would be it. Hit a search, you get the facts. These facts are fetched from various sites like Wikipedia, NYTimes, Amazon, etc. It has a big box on the left where you can do general searches. It also has 9 smaller boxes which are basically used to mark as favourites, so that you can track them. While you mark some as favourites, the other boxes refresh their contents with new topics. You can read the whole story of each of the results and you can also share this on Twitter and Facebook. FacteryLabs has different categories like Trends, Sports, Tech, etc. so you can check the stuff related to that category.


Convert a Webpage into a PDF

As I browse through a lot of sites everyday I come across some very interesting articles, some of which I want to save for future use. Some articles like interviews, how-to's, etc. are always worth many reads. Or probably you don't have access to the internet all the time. Well, I rather like reading a PDF than a webpage. So I came across this site which converts a URL to a PDF. PdfMyUrl is a dead simple tool which converts a webpage into a pdf file and downloads it to your system with just a click of a button. You can also try a similar site called Pdfonfly. But I find PdfMyUrl much simpler.


Real-time Search from multiple websites with Soovle

We all use search engines everyday. We use Google for almost everything. I don't know how many use Bing. I'm quite sure nobody uses Yahoo. We use Wikipedia for information regarding various topics, history, concepts, etc., Youtube for videos, movie clips and stuff. Some use Amazon for books and shopping. Now what if all these search engines combined to one and gave the results? And what if this search happens real-time? That's what Soovle does. Soovle is a search which has 7 different search engines clubbed together. The search engine logos reside around a central search box. As a search query is typed, a real-time search begins on each of these search engines and the results are displayed.

Online Compilers

Ever had a code but no compiler to compile it? Well, it may so happen that sometimes we get a piece of code which we want to try out but we don't have the respective compiler installed in our system. This may be because we are at workplace or browsing centre or any such place where we either have restricted access to install the compilers or we're too lazy to install.

Anyway, IdeOne is one such website that you can use for compiling a code. It supports a hell lot of languages and you can compile them online and view the output. No hassles; all you need to do is paste the piece of code in the text box and click on Run. You'll get the output. Codepad is another site with similar functionality, but the difference is that Codepad doesn't support as many languages as IdeOne does.


The Gates Notes

Yes. As you rightly guessed, it's a website created by Bill Gates! After his retirement from Microsoft, Bill Gates thought of sharing with the world, his thoughts and ideas he was working on. And this, as he thought, could be effectively done through a website.

The Gates Notes talks about what Bill Gates is thinking about, what he is learning and other interesting conversations. It is a beautiful site, nicely designed with a lot of information. One of the things that caught my attention is the "Infrequently Asked Questions" section. Here, Bill talks about the Non-Microsoft topics and expresses his views. The best thing I like about this site is that you can mail Bill Gates regarding your queries and he answers. It may also be featured on the website. Never tried it though; but worth a shot.
