    "Disappointing due to Limited features"

    September 20, 2010  |   By galet09

    Version: Nvu 1

    Pros

    I looked at it for around 5 minutes. The html editor might have been easier than what I use now, however their are cons.

    Cons

    You can't use a pre-made style sheet that I'm aware of. The ones that come with custom templates I mean. So I have no use for this program.

    "Fine if you don't actually want to learn HTML"

    June 28, 2010  |   By peavey96

    Version: Nvu 1

    Pros

    On the plus-side, the program is very simple to use. It may be a little confusing to a "newbie" at first, but it is fairly straightforward.

    Cons

    The main reason I don't like the program is that it codes everything for you. If you actually put code in, it will 'code your code,' or, basically, it thinks your code is the text to be displayed on the page.

    Summary

    Honestly, I do not like the program. If you are really interested in learning HTML, look elsewere. To me, this program is the same as claiming to be a web programmer, but only using template sites such as Wetpaint. Again, everything runs on the program as it is intended to, but the program would only really be useful for someone who wants a cheap template site.

    "Works perfectly for me if I do not upload with it."

    May 7, 2010  |   By krystofo

    Version: Nvu 1

    Pros

    I don't know about the latest advanced xhtml etc., but writes very proper html, and also can be plugged into your custom css very nicely.

    Cons

    Kompozer.net is supposedly the current successor to Nvu, just as Nvu was the successor to Gecko and Mozilla Application Suite.

    Summary

    Don't make the mistake of "donating" to or downloading from Nvu which is defunct. Go to KompoZer.net Give them 5 or 10 bucks because it's the best chance of maintaining an affordable wysiwig. No wysiwig is perfect no matter how much you pay. Use a wysiwig to get a page started or to plug in bits and pieces quickly. Or if you don't know what you are doing and don't want to learn HTML, KompoZer is still probably your best chance of getting the job done somewhat correctly.

    "Useful basic HTML editor"

    March 17, 2010  |   By TTDC

    Version: Nvu 1

    Pros

    Nvu 1 is great for creating simple pages and sites, and would be a good learning tool for someone wishing to practice hand coding. Simple to use, efficient, and very handy. Very useful, saved time and expense.

    Cons

    Sadly this product is no longer being updated. No page templates or site templates seem to be available - these might be useful for absolute beginners wishing to give their pages a more professional appearance.

    Summary

    Great for classrooms, small offices, nonprofits. Someone just learning hand coding would benefit from using this product. Works smoothly.

    January 22, 2010  |   By rodleggett

    Version: Nvu 1

    Pros

    It is super easy to navigate

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    I'm not a html writer. I liked the old Netscape Editor and this one is even better. It works great with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Front Page or Trellian Webpage.

    "It is AWESOM!"

    September 6, 2009  |   By djblalock

    Version: Nvu 1

    Pros

    It is DEFINATELY wysiwyg, easy to use, and saves time unlink other site builders I will not mention...

    Cons

    I have not found any so far!

    Summary

    I think it is great for new webmasters and good for people that need to save time rather than getting the codes online not knowing if they will work. I thought I would never switch from an online editor (after about 4 downloaded ones) until I found this.
