With the open-source Joomla for Mac you can create and update a website, blog, store, or portfolio, using MySQL and PHP to run your website. Much like modern Web browsers, the software supports extensions that add new capabilities and enhance existing ones. On the downside, additional software is needed to actually install this application, and the learning curve for using these tools is steep.

Pros

Thousands of extensions: You can enhance your work with more than 9,300 add-ons that can do virtually everything, from adding forum modules to integrating image galleries to providing you with powerful text editors and media managers. There are even extensions that allow direct manipulation of website content in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get manner.

Full control: Once you get Joomla up and running, you will be able to log in to the back-end, where you will have full control over your website: You can choose a site template, publish articles, create new administrative accounts, and much more.

Cons

Complicated installation: Once you download Joomla for Mac, you will notice that there isn't a straightforward installation method; you need to use third-party software to get the product running, which can significantly slow down the setup process.

Bottom Line

If you want to build a new website, Joomla for Mac proves to be a powerful and reliable content management system. Despite the messy setup and somewhat steep learning curve, the sheer amount of extensions available for this platform makes it a viable option, especially if you want to build a large website for a company or organization.

Developer's Description

Joomla! is a powerful Open Source Content Management System for building professional web sites easily. It is often the system of choice for small business or home users who want a professional looking site that's simple to deploy and use.
It can deliver a robust enterprise-level Web site as well, empowered by endless extensibility for your bespoke publishing needs. Joomla! is different from the normal models for content management software. For a start, it's not complicated. Joomla! has been developed for everybody, and anybody can develop it further. Similarly to the Firefox browser, the core system can be extended via easily installable add-ons authored by the developer community.
