Collusion is a very unique app. It allows you to visualise which websites are tracking you and who they are helping you to stay on top of which sites are using your personal information.
Stay focused is an app that keeps productivity at the forefront of your web experience. This app is perfect for professionals and students alike. It basically limits the time you can spend on 'time wasting' websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.
You have complete control over the sites and the amount of time. You can block or allow entire sites, specific subdomains, specific paths, specific pages, even specific in-page content (videos, games, images, forms, etc).
Can I stream it is for the person who watches everything online. Simply type the name of a film into the engine and it will let you know if it is available to watch on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Instant Video. It also checks YouTube Movies, iTunes, Vudu, Crackle, and Epix.
If you're a fan of Evernote (and we are) this handy app lets you clip web content to be stored in your account. The clipper automatically tags articles for easy indexing and searching later.
