In these pages, we present software and web applications made by the Preferencesoft company.
Some applications are in the Windows store, and can be downloaded directly from the store.
Most of these applications run exclusively on the Windows platform. We also design web applications that can run on all current browsers.
We will now explain the difference between the types of applications.
Let's start with the classic software.
The software requires an installation on your computer to run.
These programs depend on the operating system and sometimes versions of the system.
If your computer has the Windows 10 system, you can download a software in the windows store or another source.
In the latter case make sure that the software is signed by the Publisher.
Once installed, software can access your personal data, provide data to the outside...
Other applications made their appearance with the development of the Web technologies: these are the Web applications.
No installation is required on your computer, simply open an internet browser and connect to the address of the application.
Can be given as examples of web applications the wiki, blogs, search engines.
But there are web applications that are more like usual software, like a unit converter, a calculator, a calendar, or the search tools in a dictionary.
The web applications are often less ergonomic software, but may be sufficient when it comes to research into databases, online games etc.
