Editors' Review

+
Even in the world of instant blogs and MySpace pages, the ability to create a basic Web page from scratch remains important. PageBreeze Free HTML Editor provides a basic set of tools for this task, allowing page designers to work in visual (WYSIWYG) or hands-on HTML tagging mode. It's simple to use, installing quickly and easily, with an interface that will be fairly easy to understand for anyone who has spent much time with Microsoft Word and Internet Explorer. Every Web page you create can be viewed in several ways, showing off the basic code you've written, displaying all the HTML tags you've included, or previewing the way the site will actually look online. The program does lack advanced options such as JavaScript, which would produce effects for links and buttons and help expand page-layout options. Another critical gap is the lack of an editor that would mark mistakes in an HTML page--a bit like a spelling checker in Word. With these caveats, PageBreeze is a capable choice for creating basic Web pages.

"Believe the Reviews!!"

October 31, 2011  |  By msf22305

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

None. Worthless.

Cons

I wish I had paid attention to the reviews that said this thing crashes for no reason and takes your saved worked down with it. Lost a file I created in this program; lost another I made the mistake of opening. User beware!!

"Nice, free editor."

October 15, 2011  |  By mauriceo

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

It's quick, it works quite well. I use it as a quick and dirty editor for simple changes to complex pages. It maintains my scripts, and keeps it nicely in order.

Cons

There is a small ad at the bottom, but smaller than you see on most web pages. Not a deal breaker by any means.

Summary

If you are looking for a quick and dirty FREE program to do page updates, this is it.

"Lost an hour of work"

September 06, 2011  |  By downd1523

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

seem like it had potential as a basic editor

Cons

Saved an existing file under a new name and edited for an hour saving every 10 minutes or so. Somehow, on the last save, the file reverted back to the original!? Lost an hour of work. Nasty bug - very frustrating. NOT RECOMMENDED!

Summary

NOT RECOMMENDED! - Too buggy to use

"Almost as good as CoffeCup and it is free!"

May 31, 2011  |  By charlessmall18

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

Very easy to use, drag and drop, WSIWYG HTML editor. With PageBreeze and the numerous "templates" available for free all over the web, you can produce a very professional looking web site.

Cons

You can't do cutting edge-web, wowie-zowie, everything-is-animated stuff but who needs that kind of "the medium is the message" overkill anyway?

Summary

A very soild program with which you can produce a professional looking, high functionality web site without having any programming knowledge or art & design talent whatsoever. You probably will need to master FTP too, though. Awwwww!

"Do not use for pages with any server-side scripting"

April 21, 2011  |  By Raine Dragon

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

it's free, and it have a WYSIWYG view that can be useful for the non-technical.

Cons

It breaks any server-side scripting inside of the page and it removes tabs and spaces that lead the lines.

Summary

If you are editing any page that has any sort of PHP, Perl, etc anywhere in the page... don't. I had a client edit a page, and it "fixed" the PHP to be better HTML (it it's defense, it was just trying to help).

It also isn't for anyone who indents their code for readability.

That said, if you are making a simple page, or a personal home page, it's a perfectly fine little piece of software. I can't say it's the best that is out there, but it works well enough for that.

If you have a page that was done professionally, or by someone who is more tech-savvy, do not edit that page in this program because it's likely to cause things to stop functioning.

That said, meh, I don't really love it, I don't really hate it. There was a point time (when I was a beginner just messing around) where I would have really enjoyed using it.

"Total Crap"

March 08, 2011  |  By michael1720

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

Fast & Easy to install

Cons

This program will randomly add text to your urls, making them useless. It will also erase you page code at times when you attempt to modify the page settings. Total crap

Summary

After working with this program a few minutes I noticed "strange" things. At first I thought it was because I had started with a blank html page. So I then started from a templete from within the program itself. These "strange" things kept happening and I dealt with it until it finially erased all my code that I had spent around 3 hours building onto from the programs templete. Almost every single time I tried to change the page properties, like text color or link color, the program would freeze while after I clicked the OK button. When it freeze's it also does not accept your changes, thus leaving you with the same thing you started with. Also I had made a simple url to another external webpage and when I selected that url to modify its color, I choose the desired color and clicked OK... while it accepted the color I choose, it also added ";amp;amp" to the middle of my url, thus leaving my url broken and useless (took me a few minutes to figure out why the dang url wasnt working). At first glance, this program looks nice, and clean but beware this is really crap software. (it will eat your code if you play with it long enough) Much better free ones than this. Which is why I am here writing this, to explain my findings and get something BETTER! Ohh if it matters, I have Windows XP Pro, SP3 All automatic and current updates from Microsoft.

"Deleted it after trying"

January 17, 2011  |  By Funwithatoms

 |  Version: PageBreeze Free HTML Editor 4.0b

Pros

It's free to download

Cons

Functionality is extremely limited (frequently used buttons like "insert image" and "insert link" are greyed out. About all you can do is type and save. It's probably free just to get you to get the pro version. Don't bother with this one.

Summary

Functionality is so limited it's not even worth using.
