Web-Based Accounting Services Rated and Reviewed

The winner was NetLedger based on its ease-of-use and simplicity. The magazine said it was straightforward, and while it lacked some of the higher end features associated with MAS 90 and Flagship, it was more responsive in the long run, ran faster than other programs and blended well with both Netscape and Explorer.
