Remember the digital dark ages when you had to search for, download, install, register, set up and only then use the software you need? I don’t know how we ever pulled through that. Today, when we use multiple devices running different OS’s, only the web is the common denominator. So the online tools have you covered. Now they can do what was virtually impossible 10 or 20 years ago (up to running Windows inside your browser).

Without further ado, here’s the list of hand-picked online tools for every occasion and any task!
