What do you like best?

Amaya in their words "is open sourced and... has been designed by W3C and INRIA with the primary purpose of demonstrating new Web technologies and helping users to generate valid Web pages." With it you can design xhtml pages and browse the internet.

What do you dislike?

Amaya has two things against it, its sorce code packages are no longer available and if running the latest OSx of Mac you have to by pass Gatekeeper through system preferences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Amaya is not a simple to use application. It is a program that can be modified to suit your needs if you are an advanced computer user and nice to have. But for someone that is looking for a more simplified click/drag application I would not suggest Amaya.

Loved the concept and saddened it was abandonded.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Amaya is a nice free xhtml webpage creator and does allow for web browsing but has not solved any issues for me nor have I benefited from it as of yet.

What do you like best?

What I like the best about Amaya it's that's it supports HTML, CSS, XML, XHTML, MathML, and SVG in an integrated fashion and is relatively easy to use. I also like the profiles you can set up. The best feature is the combination of browser and authoring tool.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that development has stopped since 2012 and effectively rendered it outdated when coding for HTML 5 as it only supports up to HTML 4. It doesn't work very good on newer Windows devices either. It was glitching to a black screen when I would maximize or minimize when I last used it on Windows 7.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to find something else to use if you need to edit web pages for a more modern web scape as it is not compatible with HTML 5 or CSS 3 or 4. It is a bit buggy on systems newer than Windows 7.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started learning to web development with Amaya so I guess it was a step towards having my own business in the first place.

What do you like best?

Amaya software is simply to use, it reminds me of miscrosoft word 2003 when everthing was much simpler. It allows you to write your essays directly in the browser, that way you can forget of document's file extension incompabilities where you lose important documents or information. you can send it and you will always be able to read it. it just need a browser.Also it allows you to focus on the most important thing, the information. Amaya give you the ability of create templates from previews documents so you can use the same strucute to create another document.

What do you dislike?

the learning curve can be a little hards at first, but with time you get used to it. The last update was in 2012, and it seems that won't be updated any more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

wasn't been updated since 2012.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Amaya to write essays and share it with my colleages.

As we are intaking some new freshers they may not be aware about HTML or may do mistakes.For them we are come up with solutions that first they should know and learn about HTML then use Amaya and try to reduce their mistakes and this is helping us.
