WebVoyage (Classic Catalog) Part of Voyager ILS. The older of two official OPACs for Voyager. Interfaces directly with Voyager database (pros and cons). Table-based, hard-coded structure makes it difficult to customize. Looks very dated. Extensive user community, documentation. No longer being developed… Supported?
AquaBrowser Intended to be an OPAC, not an ILS. Does not interface directly with the Voyager database (pros and cons). Better keyword searching. Looks a lot nicer! Very customizable but no documentation. Almost no user community. Changes…..

AquaBrowser Developments As of right now, AB will only be sold as SaaS. The product that we have installed will be supported until at least 2012, but will not be developed. Development will be focused on the SaaS version which will be subscription based. People are not happy.
