What topics can I ask about here?

Web Applications Stack Exchange is for power users of web applications.

If your question generally covers …

  • Using Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Google, or any other website which behaves like an application
  • Features of browsers which are directly related to the use of a web application (Greasemonkey scripts for a web application, etc.)

… then you’re in the right place to ask your question!

What about other Web Application related questions?


Please note that the following subjects are considered off-topic here:

  • Web browsers, including features and browser extensions/add-ons
  • Creating or developing web applications
  • Desktop software
  • Applications for mobile devices such as the Android or iPad
  • Hosted scripts such as and phpBB
  • Web applications containing adult content
  • Web application recommendation requests, Software Recommendations may be suited - please review their policies before posting
  • Bookmarklets

For desktop software and general browser questions please ask on Super User.
For software development questions please ask on Stack Overflow.
For managing and maintaining your own hosted web application please ask on Webmasters

For more help, see "What types of questions should I avoid asking?"

Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.
