I’ve gone and done it. After almost six years of faithful service to Evrsoft’s 1st Page 2000 I’ve finally said goodbye to my HTML editor of choice and said hello to a new one: Blumentals’ WeBuilder 2005.
Having checked out the beta release of Evrsoft’s First Page 2006 I’m now quite convinced that it is not going to be the product that I had hoped it might be, and so I’ve been looking around for a replacement. I found it today in WeBuilder 2006.
WeBuilder 2005 appears to me to be the update that should be First Page 2006. Here’s what I like, so far:
- it loads really quickly
- it has an attractive, highly customizable user interface (reminiscent in places of the Microsoft Office look)
- The Code Inspector sidebar gives both an overview of your code, but with CSS files also offers a rapid way to edit and build your CSS files.
There’s a whole lot more but you know, what I really want is a fast-loading, highly customizable text editor that offers me a load of useful tools that don’t get in the way of my coding. And I think I’ve found that in WeBuilder 2005. I think we’re going to enjoy long nights of coding from now on.
