    2. Web-browser, advanced e-mail, newsgroup and feed client, IRC chat, and HTML editing in one application. Itis built on the open source Mozilla Gecko engine, the same code which underlies Thunderbird and is the base for the Firefox browser.

      SeaMonkey vs BlueGriffon opinions
      This alternative is disputed. SeaMonkey is still a legitimate alternative to BlueGriffon, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      SeaMonkey is a browser; similar to Thunderbird or Firefox. While it does contain some web tools, it contains NO more than something like the inspector in Firefox, and is no where near as robst. It is not a WYSIWYG editor like BlueGriffon.

      davidmartincodes SeaMonkey is my typical "go to" for WYSIWYG editing of HTML. While it is a browser, it contains a "Composer" feature that opens the WYSIWYG interface. It might not be as robust as BlueGriffon, but I'm not going to use a WYSIWYG editor for a robust project.

    6. KompoZer is a complete web authoring system that combines web file management and easy-to-use WYSIWYG web page editing.


      The project seems to be discontinued. Latest stable version, 0.7.10, was released on 2007 and last development version, 0.8b3, on 2010, but the program is still downloadable from the official website.

      KompoZer vs BlueGriffon opinions
      Most users think KompoZer is a great alternative to BlueGriffon.
      It is the same code, but all features are free. It is WYSIWYG editing. The only bad thing - it is no longer being developed.

      openElement vs BlueGriffon opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Philip_Goddard OpenElement works only with its own project files. You can't simply open your existing web pages in OE. So, rather than OE being a replacement for BG, I would have to re-create my big website complex in OE from scratch, albeit importing the text and bits and pieces.

    9. As simple as stacking Blocks Blocs works on the concept of stacking predefined sections to build fully coded web pages. It’s an incredibly fast and natural way to create.
