The internet is a great resource for useful tools to help with everything from email management to making a grocery list. Ripplers are discovering and testing sites and software on a constant basis in an effort to keep up with the latest and greatest innovations and IT solutions. So, we’re sharing a few of our favorite websites each month. Here’s our picks for March:
Okay. The Sound Matrix isn’t a useful tool or a time-saving application… quite the opposite actually. You could easily spend minutes-to-hours on end playing with this unique music generator. But it’s a lot of fun and might just inspire you to become a bedroom musician in your spare time. Click on those gray boxes to start the experience. You can press the spacebar at anytime to clear your composition.
You know all those symbols you see on webpages and in PDF documents? Well, nearly all computers can output those unique characters. Copy Paste Character makes it easy to do just what the domain name says, it hosts libraries of all these icons that copy right to your clipboard when you click them. Then you can just return to whatever document you’re working on and Paste it in.
Cruxbot’s free browser extension is called CruxLight, and it is an amazing timesaver. Basically, CruxLight summaries the webpages you visit and then automatically highlights a summary of content. Think of it like cliff notes for the internet. And it’s pretty accurate, too. Take the tour and then decide if you want to add the extension. It’s easy to install and just as easy to uninstall if you find it’s not as helpful as we think it is.
Those are our selections for the month of March. We hope you find them to be useful, or at least worth a minute of your time investigating. We’ll have another round of favorite websites next month. If you have some that you think we should mention, please comment below with the url. Thanks.
