There are so many Online Tools for Productivity on the internet that could potentially help you to be productive and get things done faster. Some of these tool listed in this post are tools that I have personally used and can testify to their efficiency.

Here are a few reasons to consider using online tools instead of the traditional software application on your phone or PC.

  1. Takes zero space on your PC or mobile
  2. Gives you the advantage of doing all your work in one space instead of opening multiple apps.
  3. Allows you to enjoy the free versions of paid apps.
  4. Conserve your battery.

Now that we know the benefits that come from using online tools let me share a few of my favorite Online Tools for Productivity.

1. Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 used to be the popular Office that we all know. However, The domain or website URL remains the same This is the traditional office package you have installed on your PC however this version is completely free and is cloud-based.

That means if you want to run Office but don’t have it installed on your PC. you can head over to and start using the cloud-based software instead.

It automatically synchronizes with your One Drive storage, so do not fear losing your files. You can download your files after work and use them offline if you desire.


This is one of my favorite online tools that I use now and then. As the name goes it allows you to resize your images online and download them onto your computer for use.
