Last month Browserling's programmer tools collection reached 200 tools, making it world's largest collection of useful tools. Just now I added 25 more tools and now there are 225 tools total. Each tool does just one thing and one thing only. There are no ads, no config options, and no nonsense. All tools are free. All tools work the same way. Press button, get result.

Here are some of the latest additions:

And a dozen tinier tools, such as convert hex to gray code, convert hex to binary coded decimal, etc.

Coming up: New design for individual tools, widgets that let you embed tools in your websites, file upload support, and more tools.

Until next time.

I've added another 50 tools to Browserling's developer tools. Now there are more than 200 tools. This makes it world's largest online collection of useful tools.

I created these tools because I got tired of other online tools with ads, popups and stupid configuration options that no one needs. Browserling's tools are ad free, there are no popups, config options, or other crap. Each tool does one and one thing only, and all tools work exactly the same way. Press button, get result.

Here are some of the new tools:

Coming up: New design for individual tools, widgets that let you embed tools in your websites, file upload support, and more tools.

Until next time!

I was watching videos about my favorite topic, UNIX history, and found a talk by Hendrik Jan Thomassen. He's the UNIX pioneer in the Netherlands and has worked with Thompson and Ritchie in the past. He says the real reason why UNIX commands like ls, cp, mv, etc., are short is because PDP11 console keys were super hard to press. You'd get knuckle pain if you typed too much. So to save your fingers, all the commands were designed to be as short as possible. True or not, that's a fun story.

Here's the fragment from the video:

Here's the full video From UNIX to Linux, a time lapse of 45 years, with a bunch more fun facts.
