WebGazer supports free and open source software

At WebGazer, we deeply appreciate the power and impact of open source software. As a token of our gratitude, we offer our services for free to open source projects.

Our commitment to free and open source software

Open source software is the backbone of innovation and collaboration in the tech world. It enables developers from around the globe to contribute, learn, and build upon each other's work. We recognize the immense value that these projects bring to the community and the world at large. By providing our services for free, we aim to give back to the community that has given us so much. We believe in the principles of transparency, community, and shared growth that open source embodies, and we are dedicated to supporting these values through our commitment.
