If there’s one thing most people consider the Web to be, it’s free. Not just for speech, but of charge (outside of that mammoth monthly ISP bill). But that doesn’t always hold true for Web apps—those online-only applications you access from the Web browser. (via The Best Free Web Apps of 2013 | PCMag.com)
We’ve got a lot of those “freemium” services here amid this collection of 180 useful, Web-only apps because, well, they’re too good not to include. In a ‘free starter package,’ you get usability and a thorough introduction to a product that you might not otherwise ever try—and some of them you may never have to upgrade, as the free tools are good enough. But among the 180, you’ll find 72 products marked with a seal to indicate they are utterly and totally free. As in, they have no cost at all. No premium versions, no extras needed. (OK, so you may need to create an account with the company that provides the service, but “free” is a relative term, kids.)
We’re talking full office suites, complete image and video editors, small biz collaboration tools, readers of books and RSS feeds, backup services email clients, Internet radio, and more. There are 26 categories of Web apps to choose from in this story.
