What We Like
  • Loaded with educational content.

  • Answers available on any topic.

  • Free to post answers.

What We Don't Like
  • Cluttered website design.

  • Includes content from marketers.

Yahoo Answers has been the general go-to site to crowdsource answers to questions, but they're not always terribly useful, informative or even correct. Quora, on the other hand, has a much higher quality community of members with knowledge and expertise in every topic under the sun. Search for questions, create your own or offer your answers to others.

Rotten Tomatoes is the place to go for everything movies and TV. It's particularly helpful in gauging whether something is worth watching, thanks to the reviews this site offers. In addition to that, you can also watch trailers, see what's hot right now, catch up on movie/TV news, and more. It's basically a couch potato's dream come true.

It basically helps you cut down on manual tasks by automating them. Super useful if you use a lot of online tools.

What We Like
  • Beautiful website design.

  • Find showtimes and movie tickets.

  • Filled with informative movie info.

What We Don't Like

Here's another for the movie and TV-loving couch potatoes. Or at least for those who can never remember actors' names.

This is where you go to find out more about a particular celebrity.
