Free Refactor for ASP.NET Software from the makers of CodeRush

I'm a huge CodeRush fan, as you may know. CodeRush take a while to really grok, and some folks don't want to spend $250 on it. They also offer just Refactor! Pro for $99 with 75 refactorings (CodeRush includes these, plus the underlying engine) for those who really just want the refactorings.

If you don't use either of these, and you want a FREE Refactoring tool for ASP.NET, run, don't walk over to the Refactor! for ASP.NET (Beta) and check it out.

(Note that the ASP.NET refactorings in this tool are included in the Refactor! Pro updates, so don't install this tool if you already have Refactor Pro.)

I loves me some free tools.

I had to install it to find out what it does. The web page had no features list. Not typical of DevExpress.
