Which prototyping software is best for interactive prototypes? Axure, iRise ... other?

I want to find a great interactive prototyping tool.

Note that I said "interactive."  Interactive wireframes are fine; but static wireframes are not.

Clean, production-ready code is not necessary. I don't need collaboration or documentation features.  Flow diagrams are only a plus.

Which tools should I spend the time to research?  iRise?  Axure?  Others?

Web Information Visualization Tool


I am surveying tools for interactive web information visualization, which is not too technical for class project but still feasible enough to be applied to practical project.

I guess Flex or Flare would not be compatible anymore alogn with the declination of Flash ActionScript (is this correct...?). Then Processing would be a reasonable tool to start information visualization with? What do you think a good interactive visualization tool that can be applied to senior design course project with technical compatibility as well as design flexibility?

Looking for A/B Online Testing Tool advice

Hi everyone,

could anyone recommend me a good on-line tool for (probably crowdsourced) A/B testing?

I need to A/B test some design mock ups (not coded pages) and all tools I found so far provide rather testing of the coded pages.

Thanks for any ideas :)

Adobe Fireworks for wire framing

Recently I have been getting increasingly frustrated by the
limitations of Omnigraffle and the complexity and bugs of using
Visio, not to mention having to switching between operating systems
to use Visio when i am a mac user.

So I am very interested in the increase in talk of people using
Fireworks for wire framing, what i read about it makes perfect sense
with the ability to share layers across specific pages, making
symbols to reuse across the document, so a footer for example can be
a symbol, you edit the symbol and the footers across the sites pages
will update, not to mention master pag

Methods for Documenting RIAs

Greetings (my first post)!

As we continue to adopt asynchronous models of interaction (AJAX,
Flex/AIR, etc), documenting these has become much more complex and
dynamic. Would anyone mind sharing ideas or links?

So far, the best I've heard has been to rely more upon Wireframes and
Prototypes to communicate rich interaction -- however these still
feel insufficient for some reason...
