"Surprisingly unusable"

November 26, 2013  |  By tlcoles

 |  Version: Amaya HTML Editor 11.4.4

Pros

Free from the reputable W3C

Cons

An impressively poor UI

Summary

I was looking for a simply WYSIWYG solution for quick blog markup because the built in tools of the provider wasted too much of my time. Amaya is backed by W3C so I figured it would get "simple for most users" right. Wrong. The UI creates more confusion than necessary for those seeking a fast and easy WYSIWYG solution. And after noticing what I think were a couple of bizarro bugs I started the search anew. I settled on BlueGriffin. (Let's hope it does the job.)

"Not intended as a full WSIWYG editor"

April 24, 2013  |  By Foscolo1

 |  Version: Amaya HTML Editor 11.4.4

Pros

Very good for learning how to hand-code, as it warns of any non-valid code or other errors. It also has numerous maths and scientific functions for those communities. The WYSIWYG editor is OK for minor adjustments, but for anything more ambitious, you'd want to open your webpage in your usual browser, and just edit the souce code in Amaya.

Cons

If you're looking for an easy-to-use WSIWYG editor, this isn't the one for you. Blue Griffon or Kompozer would be much better choices. CSS support is limited.

Summary

A specialised application, not to be confused with a general-purpose WYSIWYG web-page builder.

"Complete waste of time"

February 05, 2012  |  By hermitjim

 |  Version: Amaya HTML Editor 11.4.4

Pros

This program has nothing to recommend it.

Cons

Sprays crap all over your code, no FTP support, remote publishing only via PUT which amounts to zero remote publishing unless you're in a position (and can be bothered) to screw around with your httpd server, just about the worst preview I've seen in any wysiwyg code editor, not true wysiwyg, Ubuntu version flaky as all hell. Appallingly bad interface design - doesn't adhere to any kind of recognisable interface standard.

Summary

Avoid like the plague, complete waste of time. Surprised the W3C crew would release anything this atrociously bad under their brand.
