Regular readers of my reviews will know that I regard ease of use and simplicity as the benchmark for top class software and with Just Tabs that is just what you get.

This piece of software which creates navigation tabs either horizontally or vertically is superb in its simplicity and ease of use whilst producing a highly professional result. If you look at the screenshot above, that is basically it. No complicated procedures just change all the self explanatory settings to suit and generate to temporary View for the WYSIWYG result. Not satisfied with what you see? Just make the changes like adding bitmaps, change bevel etc and regenerate until you have what you want. When you are satisfied just generate to the Output Directory, which you chose in the configuration, and it writes the html code for you to that directory. You can either leave the HTML as a set of themed pages or if you are able to hand code it is very easy to change it to a tabbed navigation bar. Alternatively you can use one of the 14 preset profiles.

It literally took me about 10 minutes to feel really at home with this software and produce the same effects as the Big boys and that is why this gets a 5 Star Award.
