BlueGriffon is one of the most powerful free web page editors available on today's market. BlueGriffon is an application that provides simple means for creating and editing web content from HTML 4, XHTML 1 and HTML 5 files.

Of course, BlueGriffon cannot be compared to a more comprehensive application, such as Dreamweaver, but, keep in mind that, this is a free-to-use alternative to the well-known website editor. BlueGriffon features a simple interface, suitable for the beginner and advanced user, as well. Since the workspace is divided in two sections, wysiwyg(what you see is what you get interface containing insert object menus and buttons) and source(language code editor). So, for every newly created html document, you will be able to insert tables and a large variety of multimedia files, to edit them in multiple ways and to preview and save the result of your work.

An advanced user, who is interested in web development, will surely appreciate the fact that BlueGriffon has its own CSS parser, JSCSSP. This will make the projects recognizable in any available browser. The SVG Editor is a very useful tool for creating and inserting vector graphics into your projects. And the best part is the fact that BlueGriffon is fully adjustable. This means that, while the user is free to customize the interface to meet its requirements, any element of a web page is also editable with the help of BlueGriffon.

Although BlueGriffon is a free application, you must be aware that, in order to enhance its performance, you will have to download and install certain add-ons that can be purchased at a reasonable price. Being free-to-use, fast and accurate, BlueGriffon is one of the best solutions, if you are looking for a reliable web design tool.
