What is the difference between WebCatalog and Singlebox?


Both WebCatalog and Singlebox are products developed and distributed by Atomery. And they are both designed to help you enhance your web experience and organize your web tools better. In fact, both apps share many similar features and are developed in parallel on the same code base.

The only major difference is that:

  • WebCatalog lets you run multiple web apps in different windows like other desktop apps like Microsoft Outlook or Photoshop. Each app will show up on your Dock (macOS) or task bar (Windows) and you can switch between these apps using familiar keyboard shortcuts such as Cmd+Tab (macOS) or Alt+Tab (Windows). In technical terminology, WebCatalog is also known as site-specific browser creating tool.
  • Singlebox lets you run multiple web apps in a single window. Each app will show up on Singlebox’s side bar as workspaces. The concept is similar to how apps like Slack lets you open multiple workspaces in their apps. With this concept, for example, you can open and switch quickly between multiple Gmail accounts, multiple Discord communities, etc.
