    Hi. Great list.
    There is a small error, though – the name on the link for #11 and #12 is the same – the one for #12 is wrong – it’s the same as for #11. Should be fixed 🙂

    Great list, some of these I hadn’t heard of and will definitely give them a try. Stumbled and bookmarked.

    BTW, #12 should be labeled Browsershots instead of Easy Web Form Builder.

    Some of these items are so good, they’re pretty much required, however, some of these things, such as the rounded corner generator, webs, sampa, and are a step away from pure evil.
