Using CircuitLab to Design Projects

I ran into this online circuit design program, called CircuitLab, on a few blogs and forums, and have been playing around with it myself. There are many who are more technically-minded than myself (Fred W0FMS comes to mind), but I’ve had some initial luck playing around with it. It’s very visual and easy to use (on Firefox, at least). I’m curious if others have tried it and what your reactions are? I know that this isn’t the first circuit simulation program out there, but it seems ridiculously easy to use.

    I also experimented a bit with the web site. Very nice visual editor, but the circuit simulation seems very crude. I was not able to simulate a simple voltage doubler, and the error message did not tell me anything useful about the error. Also, the fact that you need to enter the step size of the simulator is very unfortunate; it’s not an easy parameter to set. The simulation does not seem mature (or useful) at this point.
