Websites!!!  There are at least a thousand of them but which ones are the best? Obviously, we can’t really answer that but we can at least tell you about some that you should definitely know about. So we are sharing 10 Cool Websites Everyone Should Know.

Virus Total

This website is in the extremely useful category it’s called virus total. It’s actually owned by Google now. What it does is lets you upload any file and it will be scanned with pretty much every virus scanner software out there which is over 60 of them.

This obviously can’t replace having antivirus software on your computer because it only scans individual files but it’s great if you come across something suspicious maybe you download something and your antivirus software says it’s fine but you want to be sure or maybe your antivirus says it’s a virus but you think it could be a false alarm in both cases you can use virus total to compare it with all the other anti-viruses out there to get a better idea.

Also, they even have a feature to search websites as well. So, if someone sends you a link that you’re not too sure about you can check it out.

But don’t rely on it completely if it’s a brand new phishing site or something we don’t know if it would be able to detect it.virus total

Have I Been Pwned

It seems like all the time now, we hear about a new website getting hacked and passwords being leaked but how are you supposed to know if your data has been leaked?

Well that’s the point of this site.

You just type in your email address and it will tell you if your email address along with your password and any other potential info was included in any breaches in any of the databases they have.

That way you know not only to change your password on that site but also never use that same password again that’s because hackers frequently use leaked databases to try email and password combinations on a bunch of sites.

So if you use the same password on multiple web sites they can easily get in.

Another really important feature of this site is you can sign up to receive an email notification if your email has been found in any future breaches going forward.10 Cool Websites Everyone Should Know

10 Minute Mail

This website generates a temporary email address for you that expires in 10 minutes.

This is great if you come across a website that requires you to sign up for an account to use it but you’ll probably never use it again and you don’t want to give away your real email.

Now you can just sign up with a throwaway email address get whatever you need from the site and leave.

Windows 93

This site is just for fun it’s called Windows 93. This website emulates a theoretical version of Windows that would have been from 1993.

It’s not exactly historically accurate in fact it’s mostly just humorous but is actually surprisingly complex it has an internet themed often Stein game a drawing program like paint even half-life 3 which apparently never finishes loading and you can also start a virtual machine which runs Windows 93 inside Windows 93.


Get Human

This website is for anytime you call customer service for any company and you just can’t seem to talk with a real person with this you just type in the company and it will tell you exactly what steps to take to get connected to a human customer service agent assuming it’s possible.

For example, if we try Sony it tells us the phone number to call and then what numbers to press that will get you through to someone in this case you press 5 then 0 and then 0 again.

They also apparently have a paid service where they will literally call the company on your behalf.

This is an awesome stock photo site accept every single one of the pictures are royalty-free.

Specifically, the pictures are all released under a creative commons zero license meaning they are released into the public domain.

There are a surprising numbers for stock photos on here like right now there’s over a million and that’s nowhere near some of the page stock photo sites that might have over a hundred million but hey you can’t really complain its free.

There are still a ton of really cool high quality images on here that you can use from anything from desktop wallpaper to being put in YouTube videos.

You’re also able to filter for specific types of images like actual photos or vector graphics or ones that have transparent backgrounds for example.


Down for Everyone or Just me

This website is great and it’s so simple it’s called down for everyone or just me.

All this site does is tells you if any website you type in is currently up or down. I’m sure it’s happened to you a million times you try to go to a site and it either takes forever to load or won’t load at all and you’re wondering if the problem is on your end or not.

There’s not really much more to say about what it does if the websites up it’ll just tell you it’s just you and if it’s down it will say it’s not just you.

Just Watch

You can type in any movie or TV show that you want to watch and it will tell you what streaming service is having and it supports pretty much every streaming service out there or at least the most popular ones.

It also works for movies so if we type in something like Doctor Strange right in the results we can see that it’s streamable on Netflix and most of the other services allow you to either rent or buy the movie.

The results will definitely vary by country but at least it seems like it also supports a bunch of European based streaming services as well so it should work no matter where you live.

This website basically connects the API’s of a ton of different websites and services all together to interact however you want.

For example, you can make it so anytime you get a new Twitter follower your smart light bulbs blink or any time you post a photo on Instagram it automatically posts it to Facebook as well.

The possibilities are pretty much endless you could even do weird pointless stuff like any time you upload a YouTube video it turns your thermostat up or something like that completely ridiculous but you get the idea.

Product Hunt

Product Hunt is a really cool website to find out about brand new products that have just been released or announced.

These might be physical products apps or services on websites.

New products are posted every day and a lot of them are from random startups you’ve probably never heard of but you’ll also see people posting stuff released by major companies like Apple or Google and usually before they’re widely advertised.
