Regexr is now...sexr?

I'm a big fan of the use of regular expressions (regex), and a great resource that I've been using for the past 4 years has been the regexr site, run by Grant Skinner of CreateJS fame. One issue I've always had with the site is the slowness of it; the site used a rather large Flash app to run the regex evaluator, which just wasn't as good as it could have been.

Well, sometime in the past week Grant updated the regexr site and it's perfect. It's not a beautiful site, because it's not supposed to be; it's a tool, and a really useful one at that. It uses HTML5 and Javascript to conduct all regex now and it's lightning fast. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll like it!
