Hi people! As you might already know we recently moved to a new server and things seems to be working really well now. Unlike our previous solution everything should scale well if we hit another traffic boost in the future. In other news, we just uploaded a new version of the site with some nice fixes and features!
Here is a short summary of what’s new:
- The lists of alternative applications has a new design and now shows the icon, tags and a new button for liking the application.
- The urls to applications and users are a lot prettier than before which makes it a lot easier to post links to AlternativeTo. The new format is alternativeto.net/desktop/application-name andalternativeto.net/user/username
- Tabs have been added to the user profile page. It lets you browse the applications the user likes, all comments he or she has made or the applications he has added to the site.
- If you search for an application and you get it exactly right, and there are no other applications containing that name, you will be transported to it’s page instead of the search results.
- If RSS isn’t you thing, you can now subscribe to new applications via email.
