    I can't beleive that [link=http://www.pixel2life.com/]Pixel 2 Life[/link] didn't make the list. It's by far the most complete site I've found dedicated to webdesign. They have a gigantic database of tutorials for dozens of software to aid in the design of websites.

    Shouldn't "CCS" and all the subsequent links below it be changed to "CSS"?

    Nice list...I just now saw this thread...I don't know how I missed it.

    The SWsites.net link does not work...At least it didn't for me.

    Thanks. Not sure how I missed that one...[face_beatup]

    Obviously the site no longer works, so I removed it.

    I'm surprised the Mozilla Firefox Extension [link=http://fireftp.mozdev.org/]FireFTP[/link] hasn't been mentioned. Its probably the best Free FTP program out there, at least if you use Firefox, IMO.
