Good Regex Tester (RegExr)

Hi guys,

if you want to quickly test your regular expressions, here is a free online-tool called RegExr that i find extremely helpful:

You can simply enter some text, write a regex and this tool then highlights all matches in your text.
It also has "before and after" preview feature for search and replace regex-actions.

If you want an offline version of this tool, you can also download "desktop version" (the link is at the bottom right).
(you'll need adobe's AIR to run the tool

Very nice. I particularly like the community sharing aspect of the site, makes it a lot more usable for noobs. Thanks for sharing, this one's a keeper!
