"No way to set how to open an http link, poor support"

March 14, 2015

 |  Version: BlueGriffon 1.7.1

Pros

I was drawn to the fact that this program allegedly (not been able to try it yet) allows you to edit in both preview and html environments.

Cons

Despite having verified in Firefox that Firefox is my default browser, BlueGriffon required me choose a program to open an http link, in order to install addons such as any sort of ftp functionality at all, to preview web pages in my web browser, or to get to anything at all on the developer web site from the program interface. Search to select program to open an http link with can't find firefox. When I found wehre someone posted online where to find the program to open firefox, I was in business. However the only help is a user guide for which one must pay 7.50 EUROS (which maybe explains the underlying attitude problem?), and posting a question on help forums requires waiting for a moderator to approve it, not at all useful if one has a question on Friday.

The last time this program was updated was 2013. There is no way the developer is not aware of this problem. The developer simply does not care.

Summary

Poor functionality, poor help support, and this bug-ridden program has not been updated in two years.
