        eValid Ver. 3.2 Pre-Release Evaluation Key Available

The main goal in eValid's design was to have a system focused on
every aspect of WebSite testing done entirely from the user's point
of view.  The eValid test suite has everything needed for client-
side analysis, testing, validation & verification, timing/tuning and
loading of WebSites.

eValid is entirely new technology.  The test functions are 100%
built into a web browser.  Unlike older client/server methods eValid
delivers efficient, accurate, repeatable, and unambiguous results --
results that accurately reflect what real users experience.
