      "This is not an app for beginners. I found it pretty hardcore and I'm a professional designer, so I can imagine it can seem downright alien to most people. But there is a lot of good things there, and I found the interface clear and effective. And if you work a lot with JavaScript, I assume it could become one of your go-to applications."

      "My nephew likes to program and is always working with JavaScript. Recently he was looking for the best JavaScript libraries for color manipulation. A coworker of mine recommended Async.js. Well, after checking it out, both my nephew and I were left underwhelmed. The site didn't perform like it was promised and we both feel it leaves much to be desired. I would definitely look elsewhere."
