I know like me you also start up your favourite social networking site, look at memes, news, or any other interesting article browser through it; find another article and it goes on and on but most of those articles or sites are worthless. But there are some interesting websites out there from which you can hugely benefit from and these will surely be worthy ways to spend your free time.
I was browsing through Facebook and I opened up an article titled “10 most important things to know in life”… I thought hell yeah I want to know. There I went deep I learned that we should never hit our children in public (thank god else I would’ve killed my child in public) 🙂 . Anyways, I started browsing here and there in search of knowledge of the world and interesting facts and places to visit. Before I know it I’m reading an article on “Why should we never re-use plastic bottles after six months?”.. When I started focusing, I’m thinking what the hell is this? Now that is a waste of time.
Now then I started collecting various web links which I like to browse when I want to and with it at least I learn something new so I want to share some of these sites with you, so you may also benefit from them, so let’s get on with it:
Spend your time learning something new:
- W3 Schools (THE WORLD’S LARGEST WEB DEVELOPER SITE)

The site is completely free and nicely organized so you can get around freely without getting lost.
- Tutorial’s Point – I don’t have words to describe the vast knowledge of this site. It has a huge library of topics and articles which I’m sure will love. I’ll just list a few of what this site provides:

- Slideshare – As the name tells us. Slideshare is a site for presentation share. It has a large database of presentations for students, professionals.

- Mailinator – If you register on useless sites a lot then this site is for you. It will let provide you temporary email id without registering and you can use that email id to register on other Ad-Hoc sites like for surveys which bombard you with spam mails. It will provide you with an inbox also there where your confirmation mails will come.
- Alternative To – This site will provide you with alternative choices for software. E.g, if you are using particular software, say Skype and due to some reason, you don’t want to use it anymore like when they increase the price (uff..) but you liked the features of it. Then you can visit, type Skype and boom; you’ll have a list of choices similar to it. For skype right now I got results like Discord, Telegram, Tox, Slack, Hangout, Signal, Wire, Mumble, Jitsi, etc.
