The internet is one of the most interesting inventions mankind has ever created. It has brought the world to your fingertips and made your life a lot easier. From getting the latest updates about your favourite celebrity to finding the shortest route to your destination, the internet is your best friend when it comes to getting information about anything. But, no matter how much time you spend online, there will still be several tricks and tips left to be learned. After all, the world of technology is full of tech hacks.
In today’s blog post, we have come up with four cool internet tricks that you were not aware of before. Applications of these tricks while surfing the internet will help you become an internet pro.
1) Finding Downloadable Links for MP3 Songs
If you don’t use Spotify or any other online streaming app to listen to your favourite songs, then identifying the correct links for downloading MP3 songs is challenging. The internet is loaded with fake links that act as click bait. To find downloadable links for MP3 songs, use the code ‘intitle:index.of?mp3 song title’. For example, if you want to download the song ‘Thinking Out Loud’, copy and paste the code ‘intitle:index.of?mp3 thinking out loud’ and hit ‘Enter’. You will find verified web pages with correct links to download MP3 files.
2) Knowing If a Website Is Safe to Browse
The virtual world is filled with websites that break into your profile and try to steal your personal and financial information with phishing emails and spam tricks. To protect yourself from these cyber threats, copy and paste this link in your address bar. Write the website’s domain name that you want to browse instead of ‘example’ to learn that website’s safety standards. Once it is verified that the website is safe to browse, only then visit it.
3) Playing YouTube Videos in Slow Motion
Did you know that you can play videos in slow motion? If not, this awesome trick will be of great help to you. All you need to do is hold the space bar on your keyboard for a few seconds and the video will start playing at a slower speed. It may be quite interesting and funny to watch some videos in slow motion. Also, you can easily click a screenshot of a particular moment. Thank me later!
4) Searching Incomplete Phrases on Google
It is hard to remember every phrase, proverb, quote or lyric. Sometimes you remember half of the sentence and forget the rest. So, what should you do if you want to search it on the internet? Apply a simple trick of putting an asterisk in a quoted sentence to replace the missing word. For example, if you want to identify the song ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ by Brett Young with the lyric ‘Even though I don’t tell you all the time’. But, you don’t remember the word ‘though’ or ‘time’. Search for “Even * I don’t tell you all the *” (with quotation marks). This trick will help you find the most accurate results instead of results which just happen to have the said words.
