about KompoZer Jun 2011

Should really have an option for simple image editing. Simply being able to resize a picure from a digital camera before uploading to the web site, would work wonders. Also, I could not get the latest version to connect to my site, even if Seamonkey Composer connects to the same site willingly...

about KompoZer Jun 2011

I used to use Dreamweaver but when I tried to revamp an old web site I learned my version of Dreamweaver was not really compatible with CSS. I stumbled on Kompozer by accident and really like it now. First, it is free and that is always good. Beside that it is also feature rich for a free application. The web site said there are some bugs in it but I haven't found any yet.
