Web applications have come a long way. They used to be amateur imitations of their desktop counterparts, with only one or two functions and not at all practical. But my, have these web apps grown. Web apps these days have become so powerful and useful that in some cases, they’ve begun to replace desktop software.

Desktop programs are great and all, but they don’t provide the same benefits as web apps that make use of cloud computing. With most web apps, you only need a browser and an internet connection to access all your data online. That beats having to install annoying programs any day. To give you a better sense of how useful web apps have become, I’ve compiled a list of web tools and apps that can very well replace some desktop programs. I hope you take the time to try them all out. You’ll be surprised how well they work.

Without further ado, here are some great web alternatives to the popular desktop programs we all love.


When I was a young boy I always wanted to grow up to become a professional website designer. A few decades later reality hit and made me realize that my dream would never come into fruition. But, I wasn’t depressed at all because I found Greasemonkey. With Greasemonkey I could become a web designer for any website, making tweaks with a few lines of code. I could customize any website I wanted, getting rid of the stuff I didn’t like, and adding new features to my favorite sites.

Greasemonkey is a free Firefox extension that lets you insert bits of Javascript into the website you’re looking at and has made my browsing experience a whole lot better. It’s extremely customizable and can be made site-specific. If you know how to code you can create your own script, but if you don’t, you can head over to Userscripts.org and find a huge repository of Greasemonkey scripts. Greasemonkey scripts can be used for all occasions, and I’d like to share a few of my favorites. Each of these scripts has improved my browsing experience in some fashion so I hope they can do the same for you. Enjoy!
