You might have sometimes noticed that some websites use terrible fonts and colours or have too many pop-ups, and in general, are annoying. When you encounter sites like this, you don’t even bother trying to read content on it, you simply close the window. But, no website owner wants this to happen, so they pay some users to test their website for them and provide feedback as a viewer. You can be one of those users that are paid to test their websites. You simply surf the web, click around on a site, find some flaws and you’re done. Some websites that will pay you to test other websites are-
