Most refer to the internet as a gold mine of knowledge but it can also be one of the best places to kill time. It secretly contains websites that are so interesting; it will be dawn before you know it. Here are our top picks for the best and most interesting websites that will help you pass the time and teach you a thing or two without getting bored.
This is a long list so if you want a quick overview of all the websites included in this list, use our table of contents below. You can tap on a name to jump to and learn more about that website.
Way back Machine:-
The Way back Machine is our favorite website to visit when bored. It differs from what its name implies, i.e., it is a website, but rather a search engine that can be used to find websites and find out what they looked like in the past. If you’re a ’90s kid or just want to experience what the Internet looked like decades ago, Way back Machine can help stir up some nostalgia.
ChatGPT has taken the internet by storm unless you’ve been living under a rock. The AI chatbot developed by OpenAI is set to revolutionize how we use the internet. ChatGPT is one of the best websites to spend time in 2023. You can ask the AI chatbot about anything and be prepared to be surprised by the answer. If you are unsure of what to ask, you can give these chatgpt prompts a try and blow your mind.
Sometimes when you’re bored you want to do something that’s pretty useless, but still a lot of fun. If this sounds like your interest, Patataap fits the bill perfectly. This website does one thing — plays sounds and animations based on the keys you press on your computer keyboard. So, you can start typing random lines on your keyboard and Patatap will reward you with fun sounds and animations. It sounds a bit ridiculous, but it is very addictive, especially if you enjoy typing.
Let’s just say that if we had this website as kids, we’d probably use it 24×7. The point of 29a.ch’s Neon Flames tool is that it lets you draw your own nebula. There is this black canvas that simulates space. To draw the cosmos to it, the website offers you a bunch of different colors like red, green, blue, black, white, purple etc. It doesn’t end there. You can change the intensity of these colors, their spawn settings, and more. If you are someone who loves to color or play with colors, this is for you.
As many of you may know, 2048 is a game where you move squares of 2 across a 4×4 box to combine these squares to reach the highest possible number. If you can score 2048 by playing smart, you will win the game. Now, the game might seem really boring at first but once you start playing and lose track of time, you’ll be surprised how immersive it becomes.
Browser games can be a lot of fun, and Drench is a browser game that will help you kill hours at a time. In Drench, you get a board full of different colors and you have to ‘drench’ the entire board with a single color. The challenge is that you only get a limited number of turns to finish the board, so you have to think carefully about how you proceed with the objective. It’s a fun way to spend some time on your computer, and once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty cool for some odd reason.
If you are an avid bedizen, you may have seen those trippy videos of artists where they zoom in on one painting to reveal multiple things, loop in to reveal another painting, and it never ends. Zoom Quilt is a similar website that zooms through multiple images and never ends, or does it? There’s only one way to find out.
This Person Does not Exist:-
If AI and deep-nets fascinate you, this is a website that will either make you very excited, or have nightmares about whether ‘The Matrix’ is real, and if you have, at some point in your life, taken the blue pill instead of the red one. Either way, the website uses GAN to create fake people and display them to you. You can refresh the page to see a different face.
Little Alchemy 2:-
This one is a fun little time killer. As its name suggests, the website deals with the process of transformation you achieve when you start mixing different things. You start with earth, fire, water and air. The goal is to create as many different materials or objects as possible. For example, earth and air will create dust. There are no rules, just mix and match your creations and create new ones that you won’t even know where your time went.
This is by far the funniest comic strip website I’ve ever visited you never guess what the ending or punch line of the comic will be. But one thing is sure, you will laugh every few seconds.
