 +====Avira vs Kaspersky====
 +
 +I use Kaspersky as an anti-virus and, so far, have had a good experience with it because it efficiently protects my PC from viruses and spyware. Avira is an open source antivirus which has received many reviews attesting that it is very capable of protecting against many malware threats but still not as effectively as its proprietary counterparts such as Kaspersky. ​ The fact that Avira is free and can protect one’s PC at almost the same rate as proprietary antiviruses which one has to pay for makes me think that I could easily switch to Avira in the future and save some money. Additionally,​ Avira being an open source antivirus makes its software easy to study and modify for improvement by a lot of different programmers. This makes me believe that, in the future, it can easily gain great features that will permit it to be ranked on the exact same level as proprietary antiviruses or even better.

 +====VLC Media Player vs Windows Media Player(WMP)====
 +
 +VLC is one of the open source alternative to Windows Media Player for opening media on one’s PC, I have used both WMP and VLC and find that they both have pros and cons. WMP which is Window’s proprietary software has the advantage of having a more organized file storage, and playlist creation compared to VLC, also I find WMP’s design and set up more attractive than VLC. However, WMP does not easily open any types of media files. VLC, on the other hand, is great at opening a wide array of files despite having a dull design and set up and a lack of good file organization. ​ The fact that VLC can open almost any type of media files on my PC gives it a great advantage over WMP, so I would make it my main media player.
 +
 +
 +====Chrome vs Internet Explorer(IE)====
 +
 +Chrome is one of the open source alternative to internet Explorer for web navigation. I have used both and find that I would choose Chrome over Internet explorer mainly because it is faster. It takes me less time to open up a web page using Chrome vs using Internet Explorer. However, IE’s newest version has greatly improved its browsing speed compared to its preceding versions. Another great feature of IE is that, it has one of the best privacy features which I find reassuring. Chrome, on the other hand, has the advantage of using one’s Google account to have a more personalized and unified browsing experience which I find very convenient. So,overall, I would go for Chrome because of its swiftness and the ability to use one’s Google account.
