EULAlyzer

When you begin to install a new program and a EULA pops up, you would copy and paste the entire EULA into the EULAlyzer.

It will then give you a complete list of what it thinks you should look at before you click the “accept” button (see screenshot above). Each word or phrase is graded in order of seriousness (the “Interest Level”) and clicking on a particular phrase will take you directly to it in the EULA so you can read it in full.
