A few weeks ago, in my list of overrated Web building products and technologies, I promised to balance my nattering negativity with a list of underrated Web building players.
At first I thought I'd have to scramble to come up with the full list. After all, every writer knows it's more fun to be a critical curmudgeon than a pandering Pollyanna. But once I started thinking about all the cool things happening on the Web, the only hard part was winnowing the choices down to just 10.
Like the overrated list, this is an eclectic collection. Some items made the cut because they're largely ignored by the press or by Web builders. I've recognized others because no matter how popular they are, they're even better than we realize. Check 'em out, I'm sure you'll find a couple of your favorites.
