Top 5 Open Source Software for Your Small Business

Gone are the days when everything has to be done manually because there was no other way. With the invention of the computers, tasks that used to take too long takes only a fraction of the time now.

Web browser for your internet activity

Almost all people in the city are connected to the internet, one way or another. Some even get connected while mobile. Even the grade school kids are flocking the internet shops playing their favorite game. It is safe to say that small more business owners are getting online today than yesterday. The internet, though, has been a great source of malwares and viruses. Unless you’re using Linux or a Mac, you are likely to be infected especially if you do not have virus/malware detector/cleaner. Among all the browsers available, Mozilla Firefox is totally open source, non-commercial and independent. Google Chrome loads faster but has the tendency to send false malware alerts blocking your site first before sending you a notice. Unless you’re on Linux, use Firefox.

You can also move your OS, applications and all files to a larger capacity hard drive or even to a different machine with just one click.
