This will be the second year where I name my Top Free Web Tools. Last year I named my My Top 12 Web Tools of 2006 with a series of posts at the end of the year. I was going to repeat that effort with 12 new tools for 2007 but for some reason that just didn't feel right because I still use so many of the tools from the previous list. It also didn't feel right to include most of the tools again on the list because many of my top tools are the usual suspects and would just be a repeat of the 2006 list.
Therefore, I've decided to move some of the tools from the 2006 list into Barry's Free Web Tool Hall of Fame (coming soon) and then add 10-12 new nominees for the Hall of Fame, with their potential induction to be determined at the end of 2008 after I have enough time to see whether they rise to the top or not.
To recap: Here are the Top 12 Web Tools for 2006:
