Web-based small business accounting app?

One of my projects for the new year is to get my accounting act together. It's always a huge rush at tax time to get all the numbers together, and every year I say I'm going to do it right, but this year I'm really going to do it.

So what are my choices? Everyone says I should use QuickBooks, and I almost ordered the software yesterday, but it really isn't what I want.

I travel a lot, so I'd want to have the software installed on my desktop computer and my laptop, and to keep the two synched. But then I realized what I really want is something that works like my bank's bill-pay site. It's so incredibly easy and fast, and I can log on anywhere.

So I asked a few friends if anything like this exists -- a web-based small business accounting app -- and apparently what I want may not exist. Could this be right? If so, it's an amazing oversight. It must exist. Please let me know.
