At Browserling I want to make developer's lives easier so I decided to create world's largest collection of web developer and programmer tools. I found that I was often googling for things like "javascript beautifier" or "xml prettifier" and I'd often end up on random garbage websites with ads and tools that don't work and that have tons of options that no one needs.

So I created my own tools. No ads, no garbage, just plain text tools all in one place. Press button, get result.

I just added 13 more tools that you may sometimes need. Browserling's tool collection now has 35 different tools and more tools are coming.

Here are the new tools:

  • Generate MySQL Password - Generate a mysql or mariadb password (convert plain text to MySQL PASSWORD type.)
  • AES Encrypt - Encrypt plain text using AES encryption algorithm. (Useful for quickly sharing private data on the internet.)
  • AES Decrypt - Decrypt AES encrypted data to plain text.
  • RC4 Encrypt - Encrypt plain text using RC4 encryption algorithm.
  • RC4 Decrypt - Decrypt RC4 encrypted data to plain text.
  • ROT13 Encode/Decode - Encode and decode strings and text using ROT13 algorithm.
  • MD5 Hasher - Compute MD5 hashes of strings and text.
  • SHA256 Hasher - Compute SHA256 hashes of strings and text.
  • CRC32 Hasher - Compute CRC32 hashes of strings and text.
  • MD4 Hasher - Calculate MD4 hashes of strings and text.
  • SHA1 Hasher - Calculate SHA1 hashes of strings and text.
  • SHA512 Hasher - Calculate SHA512 hashes of strings and text.
  • Text-to-Hex Converter - Convert strings and text to hex (and format it.)

And here are all the other tools:

Next few tools that I'm adding are csv-to-json converter, json-to-cvs converter, bcrypt() password generator, bcrypt() password validator, and more hashing tools. I've also asked my UI/UX designer to create a nice UI for the tools so that's another change coming soon.

Until next time!

Merry Browsery Christmas & Happy Browsery New Year Everyone!

Merry Browsery Christmas & Happy Browsery New Year

Enjoy the holidays and see you in 2016!

I decided to create a collection of tools that web developers and programmers often use. I found that I was often googling for things like "json beautifier" or "url escaper" and I'd often end up on random websites with ads and garbage tools that don't work or have tons of options that no one needs.

So I created my own tools. No ads, no garbage, just plain tools all in one place. Press button, get result. Here they are:

Right now I've added 18 tools that I often use, and I'll be adding more tools every week. Soon this will be the largest collection of online programmer tools.

Next few tools that I'm adding are HTML minifier, HTML beautifier, and Base64 encoder and Base64 decoder.

Update: Just added base64 encoder and base64 decoder:

  • Base64 Encode - Convert ascii/unicode/utf8/utf16/utf32 strings to base64 strings.
  • Base64 Decode - Convert base64 strings back to original strings.

Another Update: Just added HTML prettifier and HTML minifier:

Follow me and @browserling for updates and until next time!

This blog post is a repost of Announcing Browserling's Web Developer Tools on Browserling's Cross-browser Testing Blog.

I just posted a new cartoon called Full Stack to Browserling's Webcomic and it went viral! More than 1,300 Facebook shares and over 10,000 views in a single day!

Frontend vs. Backend. Full Stack.

This is what going viral looks like traffic wise:

Hooray for viral marketing, and until next time!

PS. My record in going viral is getting 100,000 visitors in 1 day on the launch day.

Exciting news! My company Browserling was featured on Product Hunt and it got over 500 votes, making it the product of the day! If you haven't heard about Product Hunt, it's a place for product-loving enthusiasts to share and geek out about the latest mobile apps, websites, hardware projects, and tech creations.

In this blog post I want to quickly summarize what happens when you get on Product Hunt.


Browserling on Product Hunt

The immediate effect is very similar to getting on front page of Hacker news or Reddit and you get a sudden spike of traffic. However unlike HN and Reddit, Product Hunt's traffic lasts for several days (as long as your product is visible on Product Hunt's home page), and if you make it as the top product of the day, you get featured on their mailing list, that sends more traffic.


Browserling was product of the day on Product Hunt, Oct 18, 2015.

Overall, I had 7-10 days of 2x-3x daily average traffic thanks to Product Hunt and I got tons of tweets, several writeups on various tech sites, 800% more signups and 300% more new customers (compared to daily average).


Product hunt's traffic spike on Oct 18, 2015.

I had to spin up a bunch of extra cloud servers to handle all this extra traffic. Be prepared that a day after you get features, Product Hunt's mailing list goes out so you'll have another sudden spike of traffic. I didn't know that but I've real time Google Analytics open 24/7 and noticed that.

I've to run now. Other than that if you've a cool product, you've to get it on Product Hunt. It's a great site. I didn't find until 12 hours later that Browserling was submitted. And when you get on PH make sure to monitor Twitter and PH's comments and engage with people who're interested in your product.

Until next time!
