Bayside Sniper II is, without question, the best auction sniping program I've used to date. That includes the once laudable and highly touted [...], a program that changed ownership, became bug riddled, and is now a mere shadow of its glorious past.
BSII is easy to install and configure and has tons of cool features: a colorful and customizable interface, icons and context menus for entering bids in Internet Explorer and Firefox, bid groups, sound and animated alerts, email bid result notification/with remote access, an eBay feedback feature, auction item backup, and operational logs. The feature list goes on and on. The author of this software has also put together a well written and attractively illustrated 40 page help file that prints up nicely. On top of all this Bayside Sniper II goes for a one-time fee of $14.95 .... a steal at that price. Lastly, on checking version history I found that this program is still being very actively developed.
