I joke with friends that Jetpack has become like the operating system of WordPress.
This isn’t to knock the good work the people at Jetpack are doing (because they are doing good work, are actively engaged in the community, and continue to iterate on the product).
But there are times where people don’t want to install Jetpack. Instead, they prefer to use third-party tools for whatever reasons. To each their own, right?
And there are quality Jetpack alternatives.
