    Yeah I don't really understand all the pushback on pricing here. If you're a freelance designer, $25/mo is like 0.2% of your income.

    If Pastel can:

    • Save you 20 minutes per month (0.2% of 160h/mo),
    • Make you 0.2% more productive, or
    • Let you charge 0.2% more via better client communication

    ...then it's totally worth it. And I can totally see how Pastel can easily do these things.

    I feel like most people chiming in here just aren't your target customer and don't understand how difficult it is to build any kind of real SaaS business off less than $20/mo.

    Site looks great, love the video demos. Keep up the great work!

    You mean you don't like doing layout using nested tables?

    I'm probably biased because I used to work at Facebook but I feel like FB is actually a lot better at acquisitions. Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus were all big acquisitions that have definitely not died. I'd love to hear some recent counter examples.

    Did you take that with Quicktime?

    I like the attention to detail where if the mouse goes out of the browser window it animates back to a default state. Though once the mouse reappears in the window it snaps rather than animates to the new state.

    This is really interesting! What would be even more interesting is seeing the results to this survey every month/quarter to see how things are trending over time. I would guess that jQuery usage is trending downwards.

    OS X. A lot more Windows here than I thought.

    I think this was on purpose to make it seem behind the white face.
