15 great completely free web apps that you can use on any operating system

Another advantage of webapps is that they are platform agnostic and we can use them on Windows, Linux and macOS alike (sometimes even on Android or iOS), hence many developers prefer to create their apps for the web to support more users and have to invest less time and resources.
