Over the next few weeks we will be compiling a list of the most weird, wonderful and often useless websites that we have found on the internet. Why? Because procrastinating is fun.
This is effectivel YouTube, it is made by YouTube and everything from it is from YouTube. But it looks better than YouTube. The idea is to lean back, put your feet up and relax with this alternative viewer.
This is as useless as it is amazing, honestly this one has to be checked out. Basically you put you mouse at a certain point on the page and the site will find an image to point to it. We don’t know how many pictures went into making this site but we reckon it was a lot! (You really have to try it yourself to understand).
Another utterly useless site but it might help you feel kind of cool for 10 minutes or so. Basically it lets you look (and feel) like you’re a computer hacker from the movies. Could also be used as a good office prank.
Listen To YouTube
This site is actually quite useful and it’s simple. All you have to do is enter a URL from YouTube and the website will download the sound from that video in an MP3 format. No more paying for music.
The Original Space Jam Website
Ever wondered about what the internet looked like when you were a kid? Well, it looked shit, but it’s still fun to have a look at how bad it really was. It’s hard to believe that Warner Bro’s actually made this website.
Does exactly what it says on the tin, you type in a message, it makes it big. Standard.
Again this one isn’t entirely useless, or even weird, but it’s cool so we’re including it anyway. Basically it’s a messaging service, like WhatsApp but it lets you talk to your friends from sites like Facebook, Skype, Google Talk, etc. All from one place.
A pretty useful tool if you do a lot of copy and pasting. It’s basically a place for you to save everything you paste and if you’re nosey you can look at what other people are pasting. If you don’t copy and paste a lot to warrant use for such a tool, it’s pretty useless.
Actually another useful tool, if you can find use for it. Screenr allows you to record straight from your computer screen and upload the recording to YouTube, all from within the website. And it’s free.
And yet another useful tool, in fact Topsy is extremely helpful if you want to see what is trending on Twitter search anything anyone has tweeted in the last four years. You can search for links, pictures, videos, tweets and the biggest influencers of a certain trend.
Okay this is something I’ve only recently discovered but it’s something I’ve always wanted and I was so happy when I found it. Basically this site lets you do a reverse image search, that means you can “paste” an image in the search bar and TinEye will look for every use of that picture on the internet. It’s not a perfect though, it could do with some honing.
Another one that is exactly as it’s described. This is a 30cm ruler that is pasted on to your computer screen. As you can probably imagine, it isn’t that practical.
An amazing food porn website stuffed to the brim with pictures that will make your mouth moist and your stomach grumble as well as recipes on how to make the most delicious food. But we all know that the thing with food porn is that although we tell ourselves we’ll make a home-made Snickers bar one day, we never do.
This website allows you to constantly listen to meaningless noise, like white noise only you can also listen to pink noise and brown noise (who knew they existed?) It sounds kind of stupid but I’ve been using it for the last 5 minutes and it’s quite relaxing. But then again anything is compared to the constant party that is the UNILAD office.
That’s it for now, but we will be bringing you another list of weird, wonderful, useless and useful websites soon so make sure you subscribe.
