Get the most from the Internet

Posted on December 1st 2011 - 08:23


Top website recommendations help you get the most from the Internet 

In your younger days you probably thought that by the time you were in your 50s or 60s, the pace of life would probably drop to a sedate amble and your only concern would be deciding which restaurant to have lunch in next. But times have changed and people over 50 now have exceptionally busy lives, with more people continuing to work and added pressures such as looking after grandchildren becoming more common. However, a large percentage (as much as a third) of people in this age group are not getting the most out of the Internet to help them with their hectic lifestyle.

With the ability to go shopping, get advice, book holidays, do your banking all just a click away, using the Internet can easily add an extra few hours of leisure time to your day, but in order to do that you first need to find the right websites! That’s sometimes easier said than done, because there are literally millions of sites out there, and even with brilliant services like Google and Yahoo, finding the best sites isn’t always straightforward. Until now!  

A new site, www.oftenonline.com, enables users to quickly view the 10 best sites in a huge range of categories, from ‘Property’ and ‘Money’, to ‘Travel’ and ‘Shopping’ in a clear and easy-to-use format. As well as saving time, this also allows you to bypass fake and intrusive websites that sometimes crop up in search results and damage your computer, ensuring trouble-free surfing every time you use the internet. 

OftenOnline removes the fuss and fiddly bits that can make using the internet tedious or daunting, enabling you to find the 10 best sites in the categories you’re interested in as voted for by OftenOnline users. And using OftenOnline couldn’t be easier. 

From the home page, just click on the broad category type, e.g. ‘Travel’, and then choose the type of travel site you want to find from the list that includes: Cruises, Car Rental, Holidays, Travel Information, etc. Each one of these categories presents you with a top ten list of websites that are guaranteed to be safe. Then just click on the link that best suits your needs and away you go!

The internet is for everyone. And whether you want to increase your confidence as an online user or simply want a quicker and more reliable way of finding new websites, OftenOnline can help you get the most from what the internet has to offer.
