This shows how “in touch” I am. This gem of free software totally slipped under my radar.
Nvu is a WYSIWYG(ish) web site editor, very similar to Dreamweaver. Nvu is released under “the MPL/LGPL/GPL tri-license” which means you can download, muck with it, distribute it, all for free.
What’s really nice is the underlying rendering engine is based on Mozilla Composer. So the rendering of the page is rock solid.
I’ve received a ton of e-mails in the past about how the Skidoo layouts break in Dreamweaver. Well they don’t break in Nvu.
The only thing I’ve found in my testing thus far is my half-finished drop-down menus don’t render in Nvu the way they do in FireFox. But when compared to any other editor out there (DW/FP) Nvu blows them all away.
So check this out. Use it. Love it. Force all your friends and enemies to use it.
But seriously, go download Nvu and give it a try.
