DATE SITE OF THE DAY
9/1/17    TOS;DR
   Terms of service are some of the worst text it’s possible to find on the internet. They’re dry, bland, unreadable screeds of legalese not intended for human consumption. TOS;DR takes terms of service and digests them into something succinct and meaningful. Great for people who want to take a more active role in the services they use, and how those services use their data.
9/2/17    Google Translate
   The web is bigger than just English, and Google Translate is a great tool for exploring the parts of it that exist in other languages. Available as a browser extension, Translate leverages Google’s machine learning to convert seamlessly between languages. The results aren’t perfect, but they’re good enough to get by (and getting better with every update).
9/3/17    Zomato
   A foodie’s resource for local restaurant reviews, Zomato is great for discovering hidden gems in your neighborhood — and finding out which expensive restaurants aren’t worth your time.
