Software for pixel artists?

:iconoperia:

So for the past year & a half, I've been experimenting with a pixel style and animating with it. Now, I want to branch out, try some new software and perhaps some more complex animations.
At the moment, I can't do anything much harder than this;


Currently, I use Adobe PhotoShop Elements 9.
It's a good software in my view, but the process of animating with it is quite difficult :hmm:
I've never tried any other software for pixels besides MS Paint (which doesn't really support animations)

Does anyone know of a good software for pixel artists? Preferably internet or free download, but I'm open to all suggestions.

A lot of people have recommended that :)
Personally, I can't figure out how to work it ^^;

I still suggest Animaki, especially if you want to make more complex animations. :)
