We've been users of Sandvox from the first beta release and have watched it evolve into the top notch program it is today. Simply put Sandvox 2 is one of the fastest ways available to develop and deploy a professional looking web site on the market today. From new users to experienced web pros, you are only limited to what you can do with a Sandvox 2 site by your knowledge and skills. New users can create a site their friends will envy in a matter of hours, and web pros can create a top level site full of all the current trends and functionality, and easily customize an existing design, create a new one, or go with a third party design to give their sites that stylized unique look.
We've been very impressed with Sandvox and the cool web sites it can create! Anyone can get a great looking professional web site up and running in hours with Sandvox with no previous experience required.
Sandvox's user interface is very intuitive and new users will feel comfortable with it quickly. More experienced users can add in additional code to site pages or edit their design's css styling on their sites giving the user the ability to do literally anything on their site pages.

We've been using this program for over 3 years now and use it every day in coding and creating design templates. In our opinion this css editor from macrabbit.com is the best around. It's rock solid in performance, fast, efficient, and produces consistent killer CSS code helping make our jobs a little less hectic. The auto complete feature is a huge time saver for us too. The built-in validation feature is an added plus too. For us, CSSEdit is an indespensible tool in our design development software arsenal and one we can highly recommend using.

Imagewell from xtralean sfotware, is a small, but powerful, image editing application that lets you quickly resize, crop, watermark, edit your images, take screenshots and then instantly upload them to the web, save to your computer or email them to a friend. ImageWell also lets you annotate your images with text, shapes, arrows and lines, quickly and easily. We like it because it's fast and very easy to use. Don't let it's simple user interface surprise you as there's a lot more to this image editor than first appears.
