interface = bad.

performance = bad (it lags even using a intel i7)

features = most are available if you purchase the corresponding add-ons.

stability = i am trying the latest version, i added a "style" tag and it deleted it. why?, who knows.

It's a crude alternative to Dreamweaver and almost one year without updates.

I prefer to have split view when working with code but BlueGriffon does not seem to have this. This is deeply disappointing because I find it extremely irritating to switch between views, it disrupts workflow for me. Apparently, it used to be available as a plugin you had to buy called ActiveView but that no longer exists and it looks like all previous plugins don't work for this recent version (2.1.1) according to their site. So, I'm a bit iffy about this program especially when you also have to buy the user manual, plugins I understand, but not the very thing that helps you use it.

I have tested most of the other HTML WYSIWYG apps. I prefer BlueGriffon. It doesn't add unnecessary code to your HTML. The HTML generated can be verified by validator.w3.org. I mostly write HTML with a text editor, but when I want WYSIWYG this is the one I use.
