URL

Wonderpage


I suppose there is no real reason to actually use this web application (not that you have to use any I guess). Most web users generally have some form of bookmarks or favorites as a mechanism for remembering URLs. Wonderpage is a means of visually remembering URLs, with a thumbnail view of the web page being remembered in a grid/list of other such URL memories. Wonderpage is just another way of sharing your favorite bookmarks with others (or for yourself).

There is an add-on for Firefox and an extension for Chrome. You are also able to import bookmarks in an HTML file and from Delicious.

If I have to be critical, there seems to be no way of receiving much in the way of online help – FAQ, etc. It is also difficult to see just how you can link to your public page/profile.

Google URL Shortener


If you’re a Twitter user or use a similar type of Blogging platform, you will know that it can be difficult to fit large URLs into 140 characters or less. Google has now created a URL shortener application. URL shorteners are certainly not new and there are plenty about, but if you already use Google a lot (like me), it is very convenient to have Google do this for also.

Facebook


Undoubtedly the majority of people who come across this posting will already be users of Facebook or at least have heard of Facebook. So why do I want to post a link to Facebook as today’s URL? That’s a very good question and I have a simple answer to it.

Over the years friends have come and friends have gone. In the time since I started to use Facebook, I have been able to re-establish contact with so many people that have been my friends over the years. Today, I have been able to reconnect with another friend from the past – so, this is the reason for posting Facebook as today’s URL. It is a great tool for maintaining friendships and for re-establishing friendships from the past.

Download Videos


There seem to be a lot of sites that now enable you to download video from the likes of YouTube. Today’s link is to one of these sites. This site is very easy to use – simply place the URL of the video into the box and hit the download Button. Not a lot to it. You can download a video from YouTube, Google Videos, Flickr, etc.
