At Browserling we're building a network of online tools websites. Each site in the network focuses on one and only one tool category. Each tool does one and only one thing. The first eight websites in the network are Online CSV Tools, which is all about working with Comma Separated Values files, Online TSV Tools, which is all about working with Tab Separated Values files, Online JSON Tools, which is all about working with JSON data, Online XML Tools, which is all about working with XML documents, Online YAML Tools, which is all about working with YAML configs, Online STRING Tools, which is all about working with strings, Online RANDOM Tools, which is all about doing random things, Online BINARY Tools, which is all about working with binary zeros and ones.

Today we're releasing the ninth site.

The ninth site in our network is Online PNG Tools. Online PNG Tools is a collection of simple, free and easy to use utilities for working with PNG images. There are no ads, popups or other garbage. Just PNG utilities that work in your browser. Load a PNG and instantly get result.

According to Alexa, Browserling is now a top 40k website in the world. 10k positions up from 50k a few months ago. It another small step for a ling, but one giant leap for ling-kind.

My goal is to make Browserling a top 10k website and beyond. Thanks for following along my adventure and see you next time!

Who will win? Don Knuth, the great literate programmer -or- Doug McIlroy, the master of Unix one-liners?

Epic computer science battle between Donald Knuth vs Douglas McIlroy. Who will win?
Donald Knuth vs Douglas McIlroy

(For those of you out of the loop, Knuth once wrote a 10 page program that sorts words using literate programming, and then McIlroy did the same with a Unix one-liner.)

See you next time!

I just hit 1000 days of non-stop commits to Browserling.

I'm stopping at this commit streak. This was a great accomplishment but it no longer scales as Browserling is growing at a light speed:

To build a truly great company there are are many other tasks besides programming that I've to do as the CEO.

See you next time!

Last month Cameroonians discovered that they could use Browserling to easily bypass government censorship and get back online and use social media websites. I did a write-up about it in my previous blog post.

TLDR: Government of Cameroon blocked Internet access to two English-speaking regions of Cameroon. A local tech leader and my blog reader, Godwill Tetah, asked me to build a custom version of Browserling for Cameroon so that they could use social media and get back online. I created a service called "" and offered it completely free to people from Cameroon so that they can use Twitter, Facebook or and any other blocked resources.

Today I heard from Godwill and my other new Cameroonian friends that the government has lifted the censorship and they have full access to all websites. I'm happy I was able to help Cameroonians at least a little bit to restore their Internet freedom.

Until next time!
