9 Awesome Internet Hacks That Will Simplify Your User Experience

There are literally thousands of websites packed with information that offer great advice on easy-to-use tools and shortcuts that we can use on the Internet in order to make our lives easier. However, for every useful tool, there is one that is completely useless. So, how do you find out which ones are real and which ones have been rendered incapable? Being able to track flights, learn a language, or even shop for our favorite items, are but a few luxuries we can enjoy at our fingertips, and most of us know how to utilize those tools. Read on to find out a number of other tried and trusted internet hacks, plus some incredibly useful tips you may not know about to make your whole Internet experience much more enjoyable:

Calculate with your favorite search engine

Google can be used to search for almost any information. If it is on the Internet, it is somewhere on Google. But did you know that Google can also help you with any math equation? Simply type in “Google calculator” and right in front of your eyes you will be presented with a calculator as large as you like – no fiddling with little buttons on a calculator that can lead to big mistakes. Better still, it calculates as quickly as your Internet allows, which is usually much faster than trying to locate your calculator!

Conversion made easy

Wondering how much butter you should use to bake a cake or what the temperature is in Fahrenheit? The same formula can be used with Google. Just type the value (e.g. 30 meters in feet) and voila! Use Google to find official metric conversion charts like this one.

The magic K button

Pausing a YouTube video can be done with your mouse or by using the space bar, but this method does, on occasion, cause it to skip the page instead. If you use your K button instead, you will be able to pause and restart a video easily on YouTube. Simple and effective!

Entertainment in one click

Entertainment isn’t just limited to videos anymore, and can actually refer to online gaming. Online gambling entertainment sites like bet365 can be played for endless hours at your leisure. You will be able to enjoy free bonuses for poker, slots, or other table games. You can test the games and find the ones that you like best. This is a great way to indulge in your favorite guilty pleasure with state-of-the-art software.

Research instantly

It takes time to find the right website for research work and sometimes we don’t feel like browsing through endless amounts of information to read about one thing that we need to write a paper on. By pressing Ctrl and F at the same time you can easily search for what you need online and find it right away.

Definitions galore!

It’s good to learn a new word every day and you can easily get definitions for words that you don’t understand. Just type the word “define” along with the word you wish to look up (e.g. define hospitality) in Google, and you will receive an accurate definition, plus synonyms. If the synonyms the search has to offer aren’t good enough for you, try taking a look at an alternative online thesaurus resource.

Zooming in and out easily

If you don’t have your glasses on hand and you would like to see what you are doing online, you can easily adjust the size of the text simply by pushing Ctrl and using the + or – button.
