A resource I was pointed to a while ago which I have found myself using more and more is the “swiss army knife” site 1dl.us. This site offers the following features/functions:

  • Google search (of course)
  • Your info (what sites “know” about your browser)
  • URL shortener
  • Temp image storage
  • Pastebin (copy on one computer, paste on another)
  • Temporary 24-hour email (1 time registration sites)
  • On the fly IRC chatroom creation

As you can see from the functions above, this site can replace many of the specialized sites you may use. The features are far from advanced but typically you just need the basics.

The site is actively being worked on and you can follow updates on their Twitter feed. If you use these functions, this is definitely a site to keep your eye on.
