EULAlyzer is a powerful weapon in the fight against unfair software fine print [Freeware]

Software agreements eh? Who hates ’em? Yeah us too. Who on earth wants to wade through 5 pages of densely worded text to discover what we’re signing up for when we install a program onto our computer? Not us. But the problem is, that’s how they trap us into agreeing to accept nasty stuff like advertising, tracking, data collection, clauses allowing the developers to collect our first born at midnight. That sort of thing. But ta-da, now we have a…

When you need to search for a file on your computer, you generally know where to look. However, if have a lot of files scattered across various folders, you’re probably going to turn the search feature in Windows. For the most part, this works well enough.

Watch YouTube clips without your web browser [Daily Freeware]

When you want to listen to a specific song that you don’t own, what do you generally do? Pirating the song isn’t the best answer here.

For that, you can create a playlist, but managing that inside of a browser can be a bit annoying sometimes….

StrokesPlus lets you assign shortcuts to mouse gestures [Daily Freeware]

When you need to copy text from one place and paste it to another, how do you go about it? Do you highlight the words, then right-click, then click “copy,” then right-click again in in your text field and hit “paste”? Or perhaps you go up to the Edit menu and select “copy” from there. I’m going to bet that most of the time you do neither of these things. Instead, you probably press Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V, because it takes…

Transparent Screen lets you watch where you’re going [Daily Freeware]

Over the past few years, various states have passed laws that prohibit people from texting while driving. The reason for this is simple: If your eyes are on your phone, then they aren’t on the road. I can’t say that I’ve heard of any laws that ban texting while walking (though they may exist), but this can almost be as dangerous as driving. One wrong step into a street while you’re staring at your screen, and you could find yourself…
