  • TinyChat is a free service that allows you to create a free chat room that is accessible by anyone with a browser. Simply create a chatroom from the homepage then send the link it gives to you to anyone you want to chat with. After you leave the chat room, all the chat data is gone, so its perfect for secure chats.
    Why would you use this? Its the easiest way to have a group chat with multiple people. No more worrying about who has what messenger, or what everyones screen name is. Just send them a link! Its also a great way to talk with people who are not the most computer literate- Now you dont need them to install any programs to talk with someone!

  • This is an education focussed version of the popular RSS aggregator Pageflakes. It comes preconfigured with a wole host of widgets though these can be easily modified and added to from the Educational Gallery. By default, all your pages are private. Of course you can have as many pages (tabs) as you want.
