I’ve been inadvertently redirected to alternativeto.net a bunch of times, but for some reason it didn’t stick with me as a powerful resource… that is until just now. Being Canadian, I find myself always looking alternatives to American sites and services that my IP is blocked from visiting (Hulu and Pandora come to mind immediately).

You don’t need to be Canadian to need an alternative; the site is great for looking for better versions of your favourite applications or to discover some new resources without a need for an alternative at all.
