I can see the potential. It would be better if there is a split-screen option so that coders can see the changes immediately. As Yavari said making a CSS script editor is not that expensive and Kompozer has it already for free. This makes you guys in a bad position if you guys want to be the best free website builder. Plenty of paid add-ons can only get you less customers because there are a lot of builders that such as RapidWeaver and KompoZer have already included those for free. Keep it up!

Die Übersetzung im Menü -> scheint nicht so gut geglückt. Hier wählt man Eltern, Kinder und Geschwister?? Was stellt man sich darunter vor?

A promising program. It does feel like a bait and switch, though, in that the program is purportedly "free," but comes with a number of so-called "commercial add-ons." Kompozer, on the other hand, comes with many of the same features (like a built-in CSS editor) for free. The add-ons aren't terribly expensive in comparison with other web-design software, but if you're looking for truly "free," then Kompozer is the only way to go. It feels a bit like a bait and switch when you click on the CSS editor, only to have the application tell you that you need to buy yet another add-on. Feels a bit more like trialware than freeware, and should probably be labelled as something more like trialware.

Today I needed to do an easy webpage with some links to download .pdf files and decided to try this BlueGriffon.
I have done the page quite easily. Some minutes of use were enough to see how sophisticated and powerful this is. Also a surprisingly modern and effective interface.
Only problem is that you have to explore it by yourself since there is not a single page of documentation and not any kind of help files. I guess I will keep using this for an easy page now and then, for something more demanding I will keep using RapidWeaver at least until the BlueGriffon can give us something to read.

Has potential. There really needs to be a Project Manager to manage multiple pages and a way to make a menu bar.

With paid web editors, there's a wide variety of software - some quite pricey. The situation with free software, however, comes down to KompoZer and BlueGriffon. But it's clear that BlueGriffon has more current technology, as well as a user-friendly interface - even though their features are similar. Both use a WYSIWYG interface, and both are relatively easy to master. BlueGriffon, though, seems a bit more polished.

Colour me impressed! This is a great piece of Software and much better than one time a year updated and permanent-beta KompoZer. Well done!
