10 Random Useful Websites - Smart DNS Proxy

When it comes to websites, the internet is abundant with this stuff. Most of it is useless and interesting to very few people.

Same for most nerds! But sometimes there will be websites that come along to stop you in the trail completely.

Websites so darn bloody godforsakenly good that you wouldn’t go on your day without sending an e-mail to everyone you know.

Here ten random useful websites that you probably wouldn’t shut up about.

1. Ruin My Search History

If you are using a public computer, you should probably do your business in it in incognito mode. But, we’re people and we forget to do so sometimes, then this site will help. As the name suggests, this site automatically searches a bunch of embarrassing and offensive terms in order to mess up your Google search history.

It makes some funny searches like - ” “is it normal to still love my ex” and “how to appear to be funny.” But, some of them are pretty dark (like “undetectable poisons”). So, make sure you use it wisely, or you might get caught on a list somewhere (NSA!)

2. Web2Desk

If you have websites that you use all the time, then Web2Desk, you can convert that website into a standalone app.

For me, I use Smart DNS Proxy a lot to circumvent geo-restrictions on Netflix, and I've to activate my IP address from time to time, so to prevent that I'll create a web app for Smart DNS Proxy website. Simply go to the Web2Desk site. Enter the website's address, give your app a name and pick an icon. You can download the app for Windows, Mac and Linux and it can be as big as 100 MB.

That said, the app works flawless and will save you some time (and probably a lot of system resources if you use Google Chrome).

3. emojicopy

On my Mac, I always forget the Control+Command+Space shortcut to bring up the Character Viewer, which is why I've saved my emojicopy as my bookmark.

Using Emojicopy is easy, click on what you want to copy and it’ll appear on a little bar at the bottom and hit “copy” to do just that. Then, just paste your emoji into whatever it is you’re working on.

4. Smart DNS Proxy

Smart DNS Proxy helps you unblock geo- restrictions on video streaming sites like Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, and thousands of other blocks. All you need to do is create a free trial account, copy the two DNS server closest to your physical location and paste them in your DNS settings of your computer, smartphone or even router.

For example, since I'm not in the States, I can't enjoy US Netflix, Spotify, Pandora, or even the newly released Roku Channel, but once I turn on Smart DNS Proxy, as you can see, all of them are working just fine.

It’s a paid service that costs about $5 a month, but you can get a 14-day free trial by clicking on the first link in the description of the video.

5. Namecheck

As the name suggests, Namecheck helps you search dozens of sites at once to see if your name is free.

For example, when we start a business, the first thing we check is that, if a domain name is available, but most people forget to check the availability on social media handle, which is equally important. Like when starting "Players narrative" -- "my personal channel," I checked if the username is also available on other platforms. You know, if I become the next big thing.

6. Passport Index

If you travel a lot, then this site is for you.

It lets you see passports of various countries on the main page. You can also check the rank of your country; apparently, Singapore has the highest-rated passport!

But the real fun is in the visa comparison table, where you can compare two countries passports and see what the entry and visa process is like for every other country.

For example, if you're an American looking to visit China, you'll need a visa, but if you are a citizen of Singapore, you don't need any visa. I guess, yeah, Singapore is pretty good at remaining neutral when it comes to foreign policy.

7. Flixable

Every once in a while, when I get my "me time," I binge watch an entire show on Netflix, but finding a good show on Netflix has been really hard lately. And that's where Flixable comes in.

It’s a search engine for Netflix; with it you can search all the movies and TV shows on Netflix by genre, IMDb rating, and release year.

For example, say, I’m in the mood of watching a relatively new movie, any genre is fine, but the IMDB rating should be more than 8, (by the way, my favorite feature is the IMDB filter, as I’m not a big fan of Rotten Tomatoes, anyway). Once you have made your selection, click on filter.

And there you go, looks like I'll have to watch The Dark Knight again.

8. Pixlr

If you want to edit photos but don’t have Photoshop with you, then you can use this online app called Pixlr.

Though it's not that easy to use, in fact, if you haven't used Photoshop before, you’ll have a hard time using the app; that being said, it’s one of the most powerful image editors available online.

You can edit your images in your browser or download the app on your phone to edit pictures without any complicated tools!

For example, you can do some amazing stuff, that you do in Photoshop like adding layers, replacing colors using the color picker tool, and transforming objects, etc. Overall, if you need to do some basic image editing, I will recommend Canva, but if you need a Photoshop alternative that works online, Pixlr is the best option out there.

9. Downforeveryoneorjustme

Downforeveryoneorjustme as the name suggests comes in handy whenever you want to check if that website you're trying to reach is actually down, or if there is some problem with your network.

Simply type in the website URL that you are not able to reach, and it'll tell you whether it's down for everyone or just you.

10. Noisli

If you are one of those who need a bit of background distraction to be productive, then Noisli will help you focus. This web app lets you mix together random sounds to create your perfect environment.

It can be a sound of fire, coffee shops, or waves, whatever floats your boat. It also matches that feeling with a colored background. Overall, it's simple and doesn't take up a lot of memory in the browser. Just try it out.

That's our list.
