Does anyone have a good chord finder?

The chord finder I have relied on for so long is apparently kaput:

http://theguitarresource.com/guitar-chord-finder/

I get a "resource not found" message it its place.


There are loads of sites out there that give the fingering positions if you know the name of the chord, but this one would give you the name of the chord if you put in your own fingerings.

Does anybody have a good replacement they would recommend?

Thanks,
'Nom

I've used chordfind before.

http://chordfind.com/

Pretty handy.  If you've got time, try building the chord you want without help.  Figure out three places on the neck to play it, whatever it is.

Good advice that

Thanks for the link.  I have that one, but apparently the "reverse find" wasn't there the last time I looked at it, or maybe I missed it.  That's what I'm looking for.

I do build my own chords sometimes.  Problem is I don't know what to call them when I'm done.  The chord finder helps with that.

By building them, I mean as in "I know I need a Bm7 here.  The exercise is to find out what is in a Bm7, and then find them on the fret board.  It's an interesting challenge.

This one has chords I cannot find on other sites and has chords I've 'come up with' for my own songs:
