Featured Freeware: KompoZer

If you dislike that achy, bloated feeling that other HTML editors can give your computer, KompoZer may be the freeware cure you need.

If you dislike that achy, bloated feeling that other HTML editors can give your computer, KompoZer and its portable edition might be the freeware cure you're looking for. An open-source Web-development tool built on the NVU architecture, KompoZer aims to improve upon the NVU's bugginess.

It does a fairly admirable job of that, while not being bloatware. Major editing buttons live on the top three-tier toolbar, including a one-click Publishing icon as well as one-clicks for Image insertion and Table and Form creation. Font tweaks like Size and Style live in toolbars just below that, making for easy HTML editing. A Site Manager, including File tree, is anchored on the left, although it can be collapsed, and the WYSIWYG standard means that KompoZer can compete more than adequately with other, better-known editors. "Professional" users might find the lack of polish unappealing, but it tested bug-free for me. Your mileage may vary.
