Title: Free Online Converters: A Useful Tool or too Good to be True?

Free Online Converters A Useful Tool or too Good
to be True?

  • Nothing in life is free. Weve all heard the
    saying before. Nothing in life that is worth
    having is available for nothing. On the same
    hand, weve all heard the phrase the best things
    in life come free. Which is it?

3
  • While its true that there are a good number of
    free online converters available onlinemillions
    in factthe question still stands Is it a good
    idea to use one of these free online converters?

4
  • The first question we need to ask ourselves is
    why a particular website would offer its services
    or software for free. How does the owner of the
    website or the developer of the software stand to
    benefit from this sort of liberal distribution?

  • The first answerand by far the most heinousis
    compromise the users data or otherwise degrade
    the browsing experience. Some online converters
    operate by sending their users an e-mail
    containing either a link to their converted files
    or place them for download directly in an
    attachment.

7
  • When a user provides his or her informationsuch
    as an e-mail addressto the site, that contact
    information is either shared with or sold to
    third party advertising companies. The user then
    receives unsolicited advertisements or other
    unwanted contact in their inbox.

8
  • The second answer might be that the free
    conversion software is simply the work of a
    programming enthusiast that genuinely would like
    to share his or her work freely online for the
    benefit of others.

  • These types of programs are often described as
    open source. While open source software is
    often excellently written and very safe, by its
    very nature other programmers with either a lack
    of technical skill or malicious intent and
    negatively alter the way that this software
    operates and offer it on their own site.

11
  • A general lack of quality control could lead to
    unstable and potentially hazardous software that
    might be better left alone.

12
  • The third answer is one that is commonly seen by
    reputable software companies on the Internet a
    free trial version of their conversion program is
    available to consumers to assist in a more
    informed purchasing decision in the future.

13
  • While many free trial versions of conversion
    software are limited in the number of features
    that are available, many are fully functional.
    This allows consumers to see first-hand what
    exactly this particular program is capable of and
    if it will meet their specific needs.

14
  • Of course, the goal of these software companies
    is that the consumer will choose to make a
    purchase at the end of the trial period.

  • My intention for writing this post is that my
    readers will come away with a better
    understanding of why online file converters exist
    and how to distinguish between various types of
    online file converters.

17
  • By keeping in mind the particular goal of the
    software publisher, I trust that you can make the
    best decision possible when it comes to selecting
    an online file converter.
