    1. This is a javascript electronic circuit simulator. When the applet starts up you will see an animated schematic of a simple LRC circuit. The green color indicates positive voltage. The gray color indicates ground. A red color indicates negative voltage.
      Circuit Simulator vs CircuitLab opinions
      Most users think Circuit Simulator is a great alternative to CircuitLab.
      you cannot even select an lm317 to draw a circuit with. and i can't draw an lm317 out of it's internal elements myself if there is no schematic with value's available.
