Also, we added a few more we really liked and happy to share them in this blog post. The list below is meant to make your work as well as your life easier when surfing the web. Hope this helps! Let’s dive in:

  • saves time by summarizing long format videos on YouTube
  • cleans your browser cache-trash-cookies, all in one click
  • also makes Chrome run faster
  • you decide what to keep and what to delete: application cache, cached images and files, cookies, download history, website file systems, autofill form data, browsing history, indexedDB data, local storage data, plugin data, saved passwords, web SQL data
  • records your screen and/or webcam
  • excellent for short explainer videos to share with anybody. It’s free for recordings under 5 minutes.
