Why should you use WebCatalog?
Over a billion people use the internet every day. The Internet gives us access to various services that makes our life easier. Over a billion websites are running on the internet.
To access the website, you’ll have to enter its URL in the address bar of the browser and hit the enter key of the keyboard. When you do so, an HTTP get request is sent to a remote server. The server responds to the request by sending the HTML, CSS, and JS code of requested page.
If a page is large, it may take some time to open in the browser. If you’ve accessed the website earlier, the browser may have saved some of the assets of the website on your PC to make it load faster. The assets include CSS, JS, and image files. When you clear the cache with a tool like CCleaner, Atomic Cleaner, the browser removes the assets from the PC.
Web apps are developed to address the above problem. The code of a web application resides on your PC. Hence, the app opens quickly on your computer.
WebCatalog lets you access your favorite web services faster. You can discover and install new apps from a single window. WebCatalog is an open-source software. Download the program here on your Mac, Windows or Linux PC.
