If you are hearing term Comparison Matrix for the first time, then it is a analytical way to describe and compare various attributes and characteristics of different items. In simple words, for a particular goal comparison matrix helps you choose best option!
In this post I am sharing list of such comparison matrix sites which I have bookmarked and using from long time…
#1. Blogging Softwares – WeblogMatrix can be used to compare many self-hosted as well as downloadable blogging software at once. Do not forget to check its search feature if you want to find a solution as per your requirement.
Check one of the hottest comparison – WordPress v/s Blogger.
#2. Forum Software – ForumMatrix can be used to compare various forums aka bulletin board softwares. It also have a search feature but most important is its choice wizard feature which I think every comparison matrix site should provide.
Have a look at phpBB v/s bbPress – comparison of two free and open source forum softwares. One of these will be soon used for Devils Workshop forum!
#3. Wiki Softwares – Wiki Matrix can be used to find best wiki software. In terms of options, it beats all other comparison matrix sites with search option, choice wizard and markup comparison facility.
#4. CMS Software – There are many CMS (Content Management System) comparison sites but CMS Matrix is the best and only place I use. You can compare more than 850 CMS here. It have a search feature also but no choice wizard interface.
With 850+ CMS there you may find its hard to find best.Try comparison of Drupal, Joomla & Mambo – best 3 free & open-source CMS softwares. Also please share your finding as I am confused between these three CMS from long time.
You can test comparison of Pidgin, Trillian & Miranda or read our review on them.
This is one my most favorite topic so I often write about them in messenger channel.
