Great New Tool – KompoZer

Filed under: web design — Tags:

I recommend open source software for most all applications. Many are very good quality and are free. That way you can always try it and then decide if you need a pay for program.

KompoZer (formally NVU) is the open source world’s answer to Macromedia’s Dreamweaver. It’s available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux and I love the fact that it doesn’t even need to be installed, just unzip the files to anywhere in your computer and just run the program from that folder.

KompoZer is a fully featured what-you-see-is-what-you-get web page editor, enabling you to create web pages without having to devote months to learning HTML. KompoZer includes an integrated FTP site manager, a style sheet editor, tabbed workspaces, and all the features you’ve come to expect from expensive fully-featured web page editors. KompoZer also features integrated support for HTML code validation, to help you make your HTML as clean and light-weight as possible.

Because KompoZer is built based on the Gecko rendering engine that also runs the Firefox web browser, you get a live preview: what you see is what you get.
