I just discovered CircuitLab, a online electronics simulator. I haven't had time to play much with it yet, but it looks very promising from what I have seen so far. Especially considering that they just launched the site.

I just use this one .... http://www.falstad.com/circuit/ but that one might have advantages too

Good find Jorn, thanks

Quite Fun.

Here's a Boost Circuit.

(Hint Open/Simulate/Time Domain)

David - a Java App is not an Online simulator - it still has local file save etc - Circuit lab allows circuit sharing - a real boon for this Open Source Hardware - try mine above!

now show me the link to your falstad circuit?

See the difference?

I like the way the java one works the as in the way it lets you visualize the movement of current in the circuit.  It's a preference thing.  I don't know why.  Maybe this one will grown on me.  I'm certainly liking this sharing feature.  Most of the stuff I make is very simple though.

Davis - yes, the live DC simulation is interesting, however for any live circuit, it's value is limited.

It's the ability to share circuits which rocks. This will become a standard - not for designing circuits - but for "Publishing" them.

Imagine if every circuit at OpenCircuits was live, editable, and could be simulated under specific loads?

Circuit Lab Rocks. Very neat interface. I agree - the Java app is not actually a simulator. I would say its more like an emulator.  I came across another cool product at http://www.DoCircuits.com It has the feel of real looking devices and components.
