If I had a dollar for every browser-based text editing tool on the market I would be a happy man. But, of course, some are better than others and some are a downright waste of time. TextEVO is a free set of online, cloud-based text editing and manipulation tools that offers something that many of the others don't. With this smart and time saving app you can simply type in the URL of the web page you are editing and TextEVO will extract all the text and allow you to edit it easily. as you can imagine, for researchers basing their work on material on the net, this free application could well be a Godsend.
TextEVO is a free online text editing and manipulation tool that makes light work of extracting and cleaning text from various sources - and that includes your favorite websites. This productivity app uses a clean easy and simple to use interface and lets you load or type text into the main area. Then you can simply select the appropriate text modding actions from the menu and the app will do the rest. There is a spread of actions that are categorized under 'Remove', 'Replace', 'Insert' or 'Sort' text and any selected action is performed instantaneously across all lines of text - potentially thousands if it's a long piece. This tool is web based and does not require any software to be installed. All text processing is done locally and stored on the user's web browser device or PC. Additional features include real time line, word or character count, a display of top 10 most used words as well as an undo or redo function. TextEVO provides a number of text box modes ranging from full to minimum screen text editing. TextEVO is integrated with Flickr and automatically changes the background image every 30 seconds or so to reflect the content in your text!

While we've seen a heck of a lot of these types of applications over the years, TextEVO seems to be one of the better ones with something to offer that many of the others don't. The fact that you can just type or past the URL of the webpage that you want to edit into the system and edit it right away is a dream to the likes of researchers. Add this to the fact that you can edit any number of pages and manipulate your text so that it looks great on the page and you'll realize that TextEVO is one of those 'must-have' apps that you wish had come as standard issue with your computer in the first place.
