Everything automatically. So, many triggers with just one key combination. Best of all is you can customize it they way you like.

Speed Reading Browser Plugin For All Browsers and OS

We do almost everything online. Reading long articles like newspapers and tutorials online is a big problem because screen doesn’t look like paper. One of the big problem with reading something on screen is lack of concentration. Can engineers solve this problem of reading online? Well, there is a small browser plugin utility claims that it can bring more focus while reading something online. The technique it implies is more of human psychological behavior than a technical expertise.

Free-Speed-Reading-Software-For-Browser-

Reading Black and White is less concentrating. Why? and What’s the solution?

While we read something online,we often miss the line and often end up reading the same line. If we remove this human eye limitation then we eventually end up reading faster.

A small utility called BeelineReader can help. It’s built on color gradient technique which color lines in such a way that our eye can easily differentiate between lines.

Where to get the Fast Reading Software?

BeeLine Reader is a Plugin for almost all the available leading browser like Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer (Windows 7, Mac, Linux), iPad, iPhone etc.

You can get it as an addon, extension or bookmarklet, depending on your browser and OS.

How much Speed can it increase?

BeelineReader claims that if you are using it for the first time then you will fell that your reading speed has increased. A study has carried on similar technique has claimed that such gradient technique can increase the reading speed up to 30%.

What’s Supported?

You can read almost anything with it. Long email messages, newspapers, articles, tutorials. If it’s digital data and text, it can be read faster with BeelineReader.

Box Notes another Real Time Collaborative Editing Tool

Have you used google docs for Collaborative editing, on the similar grounds box.com has introduced Box Notes. Although the service is yet fully discovered by box but it looks promising. Yet, another Real Time Collaborative editing tool which is simple, light-weight and compatible for all leading platforms.

If you are working on a project with someone and are sharing files on box (which actually is box’s job) you can edit your files on the fly with the help of box-notes, without downloading it. Cloud computing is taking the real lift now. Companies like box, google (google drive), dropbox, skydrive are working and investing heavily on cloud based services.

Box-Notes-another-Real-Time-Collaborative-Editing-Tool

Is Box-Notes worth?

Well, the service is just launched and is currently under closed group of users. It’s not the right time but there is something worth noting. Box is not for those who wish to have better service at low cost or free. Worth or not-worth depends on the usage and need. If you don’t have much data to share between clients or team then sadly you don’t need such high quality syncing service. Google Drive is sufficient for you need, where you get good space to store files.

But if you have a team managing a project then such cloud based service, where you can write notes and team up with others to edit a document is worth.

Is box the only service offering Real Time Editing ?

Well, don’t rush to get box-notes. There are other services too which offers almost same features and functionality.


Google Drive is one of my personal favorite. We can collaboratively work while editing document (Yes, Real Time – Where other users can see each other’s cursor ) and sharing files. Not to mention the power of google scripts (if you are a web-developer).

Skydrive: A similar service by microsoft.

Dropbox: Cloud based service with syncing but no real time editing tool.

2 Ways to Transfer Files Between Computers Mobiles over Wifi



Transferring files between computers is a big hassle and with so many options we don’t find any best or better way of it. Companies like google, microsoft, drop-box are offering cloud applications to transfer files between different various devices. This is a better way to transfer files but in all situations. No single technology is better for everything, that’s why we have options.

What if you need to transfer files between computers or mobiles over wifi. What’s the best, simple and quickest solution do we have?

Transfer Files Between Computers Mobiles over Wifi

Transferring Files via Desktop Software

We have got many options for this but the best we have found so far is AnySend. AnySend is offering very simple UI and simplest way to send files over wifi and over internet too. You need to install it on every device, and to use it over wifi all your devices like android phones, mac or windows must be connected to the same wifi. That’s the only configuration required.

Have a look at this video to know how simple it is:

AnySend requires to be installed on every PC, mobile device to be used. But what if one of your friend came in and needs a file from your phone. Will, you say that install AnySend first and then only I’ll send you file. That’s not good techie answer. So, our second option arrives.

Transferring Files over Wifi on Browser

For this we have to install a small software (AirDroid) on the phone. Run the software within phone and it’ll generate a url for accessing your file. Anyone under the same wifi can access that URL. Just punch that url along on any browser that will open your phone’s files on other device. That other device can be anything – Windows, Mac, Android.

AirDroid works as a file serves and offers a nice and clean interface to interact. This is one more nice way to share files over Wifi.

AirDroid is not just a file server, it offers lot more features like sending text messages ( SMS ) from desktop browser to anyone via your phone. Control your phone on desktop via Airdroid is quite easy and fun. The only problem I have found that your phone should be active on wifi and that consumes lot of battery. If you are good with this battery issue then AirDroid is the bestest solution.

If you don’t like airdroid for some reason or it’s creating some kind of problem the there is one good alternative of it: WiFi File Transfer. It is quite similar to airdroid but lesser features.

Internet should be free but it should be safe too.
