You've probably heard of lots of these brands and there are a few obscure ones, but overall this is a pretty comprehensive list from Capterra of the who's who in accounting software today.
Feel free to comment on of the metrics and pass along to anyone who's still using paper ledgers.

I would like to suggest Handdy Accounts to this list. It is a simple & jargon free online accounting software. It includes a lot of pragmatic features to organize and simplify accounting. It generates reports in seconds and shows your data in charts and graphs; Most of all, it has unlimited free versions!
This a very comprehensive list I must say. I have used many cloud based accounting software. I like Invoicera. It is a great product with some of the better features.
Another web based accounting of worth listing here is StraightBook http://www.straightbook.com , this accounting software is a choice for most African businesses since it meets its business environment but its also catching the worldwide market.
It has all essential features like Sales Management, Purchase Management, Budgeting, Inventory control, Banking, Expense Management, 300+ business reporting, Advance Payments Management, Credit Management etc.
Its a web based accounting software with more features than the big names like Xero, FreshBooks, QuickBooks Online, Wave etc
