New Tools

  • PageBull - Visual search engine
    PageBull is a new search engine that displays the results of a search in the form of images (screenshots) instead of text, which can give the user a better idea as to the relevance of each of the listed sites in relation to the search term entered. In order to cater for various screen resolutions, results can be displayed in three different formats (3x4, 2x6 e 4x3), each giving up to 12 results per page. Search keywords are highlighted in yellow on each of the screenshots returned. There are also useful and easy to use functions for obtaining the textual description of sites and for zooming to a larger view of screenshots.

  • File conversion with Media-Convert and Zamzar
    For those who cannot or do not wish to install complex file conversion software in their computer, there are a couple of good free web sites that allow you to fulfil this task effectively. Both Media-convert and Zamzar allow you to convert text, images, music and video from one format to another (obviously your source and target format must be both within the same category). Of the two, we found Zamzar easier to use, having a less cluttered interface. However, Media-convert, incorporates a greater number of formats and includes conversion of ring tones, spreadsheet files and databases.
