Kate Russell gives us her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.


WINKBALL (www.winkball.com)

This video messaging site, which has come out of a British university, has a friendly and intuitive interface.

You will need a webcam to record and post messages, and videos can also be uploaded from an external source.

The site has a "wall" similar to Facebook where a growing number of users post their views and opinions on specific topics.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC KIDS (http://kids.nationalgeographic.com)


The content is laid out clearly in a bright and appealing way for the younger net surfers.

They can learn about people, places and animals through videos, photos, illustrations and text.

There are fun educational games to be played, and projects and activities to be done away from the computer.

DEEZER (www.deezer.com)


An offering of music catalogues from some of the biggest global record labels and over a thousand independents, for you to play on demand, and for free.

The website and its artists make their money from advertising revenue - and songs can be bought if you want to add to your collection.

Like other music sites, there are regional restrictions so some users will get more out of it than others depending on their country.

FRENGLY (www.frengly.com)


This online translation tool can work out the language of what you need to translate.

Just pop the text you want to convert in the top box, then click the language you want to translate to.
