    Nice article I didn't know about i2symbol! I came across Bitrix24 last week and I'm using it now in my business. It's a complete company intranet tool that works in real time.

    Do you use Cloudflare on Makeuseof as it is essential and works great I'd recommend it .

      CloudFare is a useful service. We were very interested to use it on MakeUseOf at the beginning but decided not to use it as it would make our content delivery highly dependable on the uptime of the Cloudfare
