What are underrated websites and what do you use them for? from AskReddit
It’s basically a text to speech site that lets you copy and paste passages into a text box and then the computer will read it back to you. I use this when I need to type out papers, short stories or any other lengthy piece of writing as a way of proofreading. It’s nice to use this way because then you can hear your errors read aloud.
I always love an opportunity to be able to talk about archive.org because it is such a wonderful and free resource for so many things.
It has millions of free downloads for music, movies, books, software, etc. One very popular example is that it is home to a very large catalog of Grateful Dead recordings
There is also The Internet Arcade where you can play a lot of classic games along with the Console Living Room which is similar. They have access to tons of old PC games too and you can even play the original Oregon Trail online. There’s a lot more in their software section too.
It also has The WayBack Machine which has archived more than 486 billion web pages saved so you can go back and see how websites were years ago. For example, here’s reddit on July 25, 2005 a month after it was created.

remove.bg does a pretty solid job at removing the background of any image. You can even just Ctrl + V
Tip of my tongue!
It’s really effective and has helped me countless times, I always seem to want a word when I’m writing but forget what the actual word is.
