    Very useful, but much more limited in comparison due to the privacy focus.

    Can be used as the very first stop in finding alternative software and services before checking the rest here. What's listed there is usually of high quality, and respects your privacy of course.

    There is no overlap in functionality of alternativeto.net and PRISM Break to qualify either as an alternative to the other.
