If you'll excuse the pun, Fang is pretty long in the tooth. I don't use it

What’s your opinion of Fangs? The tool hasn’t been updated for a long time 
now, and I’m not sure it works with the latest versions of Firefox.

An informal question, what accessibility tools do people here trust
most these days?

I’m reviewing the accessibility section of UITest.com and am not sure
it’s up-to-date.

(Direct feedback okay if you happen to run any tools you like to see
listed there, or if you have any general feedback.)
