Convert the masses

01 Apr 2011

If you’re anything like me, you hate the idea of downloading unnecessary programs. After all, they usually just clog up your folders, slow down your PC and of course, there are always viruses. There are, of course, many programs that really are handy, that I’d hate to have to live without, such as file converters. If you want the power to convert any file to any other type of file, but you also want to keep your hard drive clear (not to mention the difficulty in finding decent convertor freeware) here’s the can convert just about anything to just about anything else and there’s no download required. Simply open up in your browser and convert any audio, video, image, document or E-book to any format you could desire. Best of all, you don’t even need the actual file to do it – you can just enter the URL of whatever you want and download it in your chosen format.
