Internet Tips, Tricks, Great Web Sites & Web Services

TinyURL : Allows you to turn a long Web site URL into a much shorter one. 2. : Social Bookmarking service allows you to save all of your bookmarks online and access them anywhere that you have an Internet connection.

Install it from and your bookmarks will be backed up and synchronized from any Web browser you have this installed on. 3. Foxbright : (The PHASD CMS system for building a free classroom, department or school Web site). Check out our How-To’s page for tips and tutorials on using Foxbright, or attend one of our many training workshops to learn how to use it. 4. The WayBack Machine : http://www.archive.or
