Quickbooks seems to be widely used.
PCWorld (or PCmagazine?) recently did an article about accounting software, and another less costly software was very well received (can't remember the name, sorry).

Quickbooks here. Best deal for the money for me. I know some folks use PeachTree as well but 6 to one...
It really comes down to what you're most comfortable with.

I use quickbooks as well. I wasn't crazy about it, but I got used to it.
Years ago I used Peachtree and thought it was fabulous. I recently downloaded the latest version and was appalled. It's a clone of Quickbooks.
So, I'm still looking for something better as well, but for now Quickbooks does the job.

I initially used QuickBooks but found it to be to big for what I needed. I now use Quicken Home & Business...
This gives you the ability to do invoices, proposal, etc. Also if you are just freelancing you probably only need to file a Schedule C each year so it will integrate with your other finances making tax time easier...

I also use Quicken Home & Business. It has pretty good invoicing and with the click of a button will send an invoice as an email (HTML attachment).
It's pretty lightweight, and minimal investment if you're not sure what you need.

I have been using Simply Accounting for years. I have a new bookkeeper who uses QuickBooks, and that is fine. I do all of my invoicing in SA, and send her a copy of the client invoice so that she can enter it into QB. I only see her once a month and need to invoice more regularly - plus I like to see how much I am on track to make this year.
It is double entry, but I don't "validate" my SA - only her QB has to agree with my banking records...

We use Sage BusinessWorks for main company - but that's much too big for home.
I keep up with web invoicing using PeachTree - LOVE It. It's not as wonderful as BusinessWorks, but it's better than the other small biz accounting packages i've seen.
