FlameRobin doesn't run on Windows Server 2016.  I built a commercial replacement using Lazarus and IBX components, that users of FlameRobin will find "familiar".  FireBolt is Windows only and English only at this point.

This is not free? I cannot even find the price there.
No introduction, no presentation, no snapshots, there is a tutorial (tips and tricks) which is not free of charge (although for that we can see the price - less then four Canadian dollars).

Do we have to register just to see the price? Do we have to buy the "Tips and tricks" just to see what this actually looks like?
I suggest you'd better change this. Try to make an appealing presentation if you want to sell the product.

I would not call it a replacement, FlameRobin is Free & Open Source and cross-platform (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Solaris)...
Linux Mint 18.3 - KDE / Windows8 / Lazarus 1.8.2 / trunk -qt

Good points all.

I'll edit the post title.

No, it's not free.  But it's cheap.

There is a "Buy Now" button which should show the price in PayPal, and you can just cancel out.

The Tips and Tricks shows all screen shots, explains everything, and makes you an expert before you even get the product.

I'm looking for an "Evangelist" for FireBolt.  Some one who uses, or has used, FlameRobin, but would like to get a free copy of FireBolt, licensed to them for tryout and reviewing purposes (and continued use, if they like it), in exchange for:

- Good press, and good reviews if they like it.
- Let me know (only) if they don't like it. (and uninstall it and don't use it if I can't make it so they like it)

FireBolt follows a strict design philosophy, which I want to adhere to, however if the Evangelist/Reviewer finds bugs, I will certainly fix them.
