Use less generic dummy text in web designs

Sometimes it may be useful to use less generic dummy text in your designs: for instance, when you want to give your design more context, and see how it works best with the text that could actually be used on a website. Whether you need an ordered or unordered list, a simple paragraph or a headline, just grab it from Kureno's Lorem Ipsum Tool.

Check one or several of the control boxes and click “Generate.” You can even choose between three different content types from a drop-down list: “Design Studio,” “Business” and “Technology.”
