Tiny Websites

One web concept that is picking up these days is to make everything tiny, easy to use, focussed and clutterless. Some interesting tiny websites I found:

1. TinyPaste – Online clipboard.

2. TinyChat – No user name. No login. Just Chat.

3. TinyURL – To shorten website addresses.

Do you use any other tiny service?

Any idea for a new tiny service? How if someone comes up with:

* TinyWiki

* TinyBlog
