I design brochure-type websites and purchased BannerZest Pro to be able to add small flash bits to my sites. I'm pleased with it overall. Here's one of the sites I used BannerZest on and, combined with Google AdWords, this company has had been receiving some good sales leads after I added flash to the site: For one thing, not everyone loves flash-heavy sites, but I can add just a bit of zest without being overpowering with this application. For another, Adobe is just too expensive and the learning curve is too steep for me anyway. My only suggestion/complaint is that the I can't add html links into it.

After complaining that I could not add html links in my review, I found out that I could under the Media tab.

Regarding the previous posts, I have not needed customer service or support so can't comment. All the questions I've had were addressed using the Help feature. I consider that a major asset anyway ... I don't have to spend time contacting someone by phone or e-mail.

We've used MYOB First Edge for a year now for our bicoastal construction business and could not be more satisfied. For construction, the job costing feature can't be beat. That's usually the most time consuming part of construction accounting.

Other features include: awesomely customizable reports, numerous ways to search for transactions, and the ability to import and export data as needed (including importing bank statement info if you have online banking). There are tons of features we don't even use, such as the ability to accept credit cards. But we like knowing that if we expand into retail MYOB First Edge will already have the additional features we'll need.

The demo version works just like the full version. I think the time limit was 30 days, but we bought the full version after only about three weeks. The price is great too, especially for such feature-packed software.

This works GREAT and has saved me uncountable hours.

Speaking as a graphic artist who learned to do some html coding and manage a few Web sites, mostly for nonprofits, this little gem is invaluable when I need to make a change to a lot of pages at once. I'm always having a client come along and want to change (for example) its Web site background from one shade of gray to another. Rather than opening up thirty pages and manually changing 51, 51, 51 to 153, 153, 153, I can do it in seconds with Easy Replace. It's easy for a non-techie like me and has worked perfectly at all times.

I try a lot of shareware, but almost never consider any of it worth the price. In this case, it was worth buying.

Does not work with my new Intel Mac. Too bad. I really enjoyed this fun little piece of software.
