Zamzar is a web converter that supports thousand conversions in respect to video, audio, eBook. image, compressed format, and doc. It requires you to submit an email address to recevie the download link instead of proving it on the web page. But it only takes a few minutes. Moreover, Zamzar is a completely free service.


I take SmallPDF as my online PDF to Word converter but its capabilities are not limited to converting PDF to/from other formats. It is a very intuitive and easy-to-use tool to handle PDF documents but not compeltely free. You can only compress 2 PDFs in an hour unless you pay $6 per month.


I've been using OnlineVideoConverter for a while. Basically to convert online videos to MP3 files. The downside of this site is the bothering commercials that makes it cluttered and the annoying pop-ups that appear sometimes.


Online-Convert works as an all-in-one converter site in respects to image, archive, video, audio, ebook, webservice, document. You can upload your source file from local, cloud storage and URL. There is a search box at top right, which helps you to check if the conversion type you need is supported by the service. What's more, it is free for use. I have not came across any virus or malware download on So I think it is a reliable and safe web-based converter.


5/28/18 is an all-inclusive site where you can split, merge, convert, create, rotate, encrypt, compress, grayscale PDFs. No need for signing up or submitting email address. More importantly, it is truly free for use. Finding an online LaTeX to PDF converter is not an easy task. If you go to this site, you land on the right page. provides a LaTeX to PDF converter that works great. There is no data loss and the layout is well-preserved after conversion.

This is a website that offers different kinds of small PDF processors for Win. One of them I tried is named "All PDF Converter Pro" for changing PDF to images, Word, PPTX, Excel, TXT, XML, EPUB, HTML. The output quality is satisfactory and the conversion speed is fast. You an also use it to combine several PDF documents together. I think it is a handy tool that should be at your fingertips if you often need to convert PDF to other formats.

FreewareFiles is a download portal for you to obtain a wide variety of free software programs. You also will find useful "How to" tutorials and "Top" reviews. The drawback is that a few ads are scattered throughout the site and you possibly mistake the ad button as the download button for the software you want.


Softpedia is a large library for a wide range of software for Win, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. What is great about Softpedia is the tests and reviews for software products. You can identify those safe-to-use software programs by the sign "100% clean". You can find detailed information about the functionalities and performance of the software. Everything Softpedia team members do aims to help you decide whether to try the software or not. Needless to say, if you a developer, Softpedia is a great software publishing platform you can't miss.


Pocket allows you to save images, articles, videos with one button click. It is a convenient tool used to manage and store your favorite online content. Interestingly, Pocket improves the reading experience by reformatting the article you saved and making it look better.

Stack Exchange

Usually, I ask questions and get the information I want on two platforms. One is Quora, the other one is Stack Exchange. Stack Exchange is a forum where people from different fields can discuss, communicate, and help each other in classified communities. Due to a large user base, there are insanely amount of information. You almost can find any info you need on the exact problem there. Besides, you can expect a quick response to your question. Personally, I think two best communities of Stack Exchange is "Stack Overflow", centering lots of web programming questions and English Language & Usage, gathering questions primarily about idioms and grammars.


The video ads are always annoying to me and that's why I tried AdBlock. This chrome extension works great and I am really satisfactory at it. One feature I like very much is that you can instruct Adblock not to run on specific webpages of a site.

I accidently found Adblock even can block sample html ads in SEMrush.

I mainly use CCleaner as my Disk C cleaner on my Dell laptop. This small yet powerful program is a thorough system cleaner. It deeply scans your system and then lists a lot of items you can select to clean related to Windows system and third-party applications. You can wipe off a lot of things such as browser cache, temporary files, unused craps, cookies, logs. What is worth being mentioned is the plug-in "CCEnhancer". It adds extra cleaning rules to CCleaner to free up more disk space. I found that because CCEnhancer adds more options to clean, the program would load all scanned items slightly more slowly than before.

The paid-for upgrade to pro version brings you several more features including "Real-time Monitoring", "Scheduled Cleaning", "Automatic Updates" and "Premium Support". These are not quite useful for me but might be necessary to others.

In a whole, I think CCleaner is a great choice to clean trash when your computer gets clogged up.
