Webware 100 Editors' Choice: Aviary

Site: Aviary
Category: Editors' Choice, Technical Achievement

Aviary started as a photo editor built into a browser, but since we first covered the app its developers have rolled out a vector editor, a color palette editor, and a tool for creating visual effects. All are delivered through Flash apps in a Web browser. The apps force you to reconsider ever using traditional software again.

The Aviary team also built in unique collaboration dn remixing tools, so artists can lend and borrow graphics and maintain intellectual property rights in the process.

Who needs software? This is a layer-based image-editing application running in a browser window. It's pretty snappy, too. Rafe Needleman/CNET
