Passion and Work
We believe that passion and work are really important to build a great and innovative web application.
Free Powerful Platform
We would like to build a crowdsourced comparison engine, flexible to compare everything, freely and easily updatable by everyone without any technical skills.
We want to provide an innovative comparison engine, that is much more than a simple price comparison site. Everything can be compared (not only products or prices), there is also a visual comparison tool directly embed within tables.
All user-generated data are released under open licenses to share more easily and freely information worldwide (exactly like the Wikipedia encyclopedia does).
Power of the Community
We believe that collaboration and community are the most powerful thing to maintain an huge amount of various and interesting data.
We think that world is multicultural, so we build a multilingual platform since day one: it is easy to translate comparison content into several languages. For the moment, we support the languages we know but we plan to enable other languages later.
