Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This free blog editor does a good job of letting you compose and post to your blog while browsing the Web, but log-in issues prevented us from accessing all but the most basic features.

ScribeFire's interface takes up the lower half of your browser window, and it can be resized to your liking. You can activate the program by a right-click or by clicking on the status-bar icon, though a hot-key combination would have been a little more convenient. The page design is pretty straightforward and we were able to quickly jump in and start typing in the Word-style notepad. The bookmark feature requires log-in information that we didn't have and we couldn't find where to create a new username and password. A Help link took us to the publisher's Web site, but it didn't offer much help. We also encountered a problem when we tried to upload an image for a post. The option to insert a URL image was there, but the option to upload from a file was inactive. Despite this, we were able to post to our blog without any problems.

ScribeFire gets the job done, but there are still a few kinks that the publishers need to work out before we can recommend it.
