Free Web / Cloud Microsoft Office Visio Alternatives

As Visio is Microsoft's commercial solution for professional diagramming and workflow drafting, it has many alternatives just like other parts of the Microsoft Office Suite. These alternatives share many of the features found in Visio, such as support for scalable vector graphics files so that your charts and diagrams don't suffer any loss in quality when resized.

If you would rather use alternatives to Visio that are free and web-based, there are viable options that can be used to replace Visio with minimal loss in functionality for major amounts of convenience.
