Our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award for Mac web design software goes to Karelia Software’s application, Sandvox. The intuitive usability and a few "wow" features put Sandvox on the top. The software is very easy to use and boasts a host of fantastic features. Although Sandvox features are quite similar to other top web design software for Macs, Sandvox seems to be a step ahead of the game. For example, most design software will have templates, but Sandvox templates offer better variety and style. Sandvox 2012 - TopTenREVIEWS

This text offers a unique hands-on approach to research by featuring engaging and relevant exercises, as well as behind-the-scenes glimpses of feminist researchers at work.
