From what I saw by news on the developer's site, the core program hasn't seen active development in about two years. At the source site (http://sourceforge.net/projects/kompozer/) there has been recent activity and updates. Haven't tested it yet on Linux, but ran into issues as well on OSX 10.8.3. Until I can test the actual program that will run in some environment, I won't review it, but if I did, I would not rate it as acceptable based on performance issues in OSX. At present, it likely won't do any better in the coming OSX 10.9

ADDENDUM: The interface could use some work, but there are obviously limits for a cross-platform application which must be left simple enough to adapt to multiple environments/GUIs.

ADDENDUM 2: It appears the main developer has moved over the Mozilla OS team and is no longer actively working on this project. Several of the adjunct members for proposed future plugins are also gone, including some of their site's domain names now being up for sale. You should probably assume that at present this is as far as this software will get.

It may be good if you have Snow Leopard but it's not good with Lion or Mountain Lion.

This is by far and really by far the best free html editor for OS X.
It never failed/crashed and is packed with all the features you need.

A pity it isn't developed anymore (so it seems).

I can build a simple website with KompoZer, or make an eBay listing using this software, with exceptional speed. While I like the features of BlueGriffon, and both programs share basic features, KompoZer is relatively easy to learn and use. It hasn't changed much over the years, but that's mostly a good thing, and there's good programming behind this application. I use it regularly. The price is unbeatable.

I was a fan since the old NVU days, but KompoZer fills the job capably. The design is perhaps a bit utilitarian, but if you need to produce a simple website or auction listing, this is easy to use. I haven't yet used BlueGriffon (which is also free), but it's easy to like KompoZer's simplicity.

Works great for me, I used to work with NVU but that was not an easy app.
KompoZer is still a work in progress, but it's already way better than the old NVU, and the best thing... It's FREE.

Crash and buggy.
When using open menu will hang.

Same bugs on Windows version.

Linux version full of bugs too, almost unusable.

Plus it is an unintuitive software, back to dreamweaver and Flux.
