So you want to sign-up for a free online service or try a new website, but they are asking you to fill out a long form with all kinds of details: name, address, ZIP code, phone, email, birthday, and more. But you want to protect your privacy and not give away all this personal information.
Use Fake Name Generator, a very easy to use online tool that automatically generates an entire fake identity. You get a name, address, city, a matching ZIP code, phone number, e-mail address, birthday, occupation, company, vehicle, and even physical traits like blood type, weight and height.
Meaki allows you to easily bookmark any website or webpage. But unlike other bookmarking applications, Meaki saves an entire screenshot along with the website information.
The previous post was about Screen Capture (by Google), a Chrome extension that allows you to save pictures (screenshots) of interesting websites on your computer. You may think of Meaki as an online alternative.
If you find an article, webpage or social profile that features your work or talks about you, or find something that inspires you, you may want to save an exact copy of that page. This can be done by capturing a screenshot of the page and by saving it as an image.
There are a lot of standalone programs, browser extensions and even websites that help you with this task. Screen Capture (by Google) is one of them. It’s a Google Chrome extension and it’s developed by… Google itself.
There are a lot of places on the Internet that ask you for an e-mail address. A lot of websites require registration in order to let you access their best areas, their files or free downloads. Entering your own e-mail address may open the door to receiving countless of unwanted email messages in the future.
So if you are sure you won’t need future notifications or communication with a website or service, and only want to quickly register and receive the first few messages, use a disposable email service like 10 Minute Mail.
VirusTotal is an online tool that scans suspicious files and URLs with the help of over 40 antivirus engines and products. You can scan a website or a web page, the download link of an app or software product, and even upload any suspicious file from your computer.
VirusTotal scans for viruses, worms, trojans, and any other kind of malware. You get results from leading antivirus products like Avast, AVG, BitDefender, Kaspersky, McAfee, Symantec, and many others. For websites and web pages you also get reports from services like Comodo SiteInspector or Google Safebrowsing.
When you click on a small image or photo in a web page, the full image usually loads as an overlay on top of the page. A lot of websites or popular social networks (like Facebook) use this type of effect when showing large photos or images.
Do you want to create your personal or business site and want to see if your domain name is still available?
