I maintain a list of products that respects people’s data, and are user-friendly.

Generally, I add products that are a good alternative to Google’s tools, to help people switch.

I do not have specific requirements yet for products I add to the list. Some are open-source, some are Free/Libre and Open-Source (FLOSS); all products tend to be user-friendly” so people switching from Google can adopt them smoothly.

I added:

  • Web-based spreadsheet: EtherCal
  • Web-based word processor: Etherpad
  • Polls: Framadate
  • File transfer: Drop
