It is the best link between the compiler and the programmer you can get. Especially in the development of large applications with PowerBasic, it is an indispensable tool for me.
I find with version 3 that FireFly just keeps getting better and better. The new version has a great look and many useful new features, such as the FireTextBox edit control and the XP Themed Button by José Roca. It is just what I wanted.

Fantastic, Powerful, User Friendly and Absolutely the best RAD tool available for PowerBasic programmers. Easily and quickly develop GUI windows for your PowerBasic programs. And, when FireFly-3 is teamed up with SQLITE (or your favorite database engine), it allows the PowerBasic programmer to rapidly develop complicated database applications.
Paul Squires provides excellent support for his products. When ever I have had a question, Paul has always been there to provide an answer or to help us find a solution. You simply won't find better support anywhere.
If you program in PowerBasic, FireFly-3 is simply a must have tool.

PlanetSquires has created a new homerun product with FireFly3. I have done lots of programming in a career that spans a few decades, and FireFly3 is by far the best tool I have ever used to develop software when used in combination with PowerBASIC. FireFly3 leverages the sweet spot of making the user interface design easy yet staying out of the way for the serious programmer to get down close to the Operating System ... and it can handle HUGE programs that top hundreds of thousands of lines of code with ease.
Speed, ease of use, not too complex, packed with lots of controls, and a price that is not much more than a month's worth of StarBucks' stops you cannot find a better tool, period. Coupled with Paul's dedication to support why would you want to use something else?
