"A very powerful software."

What do you like best?

it fully conforms to the latest W3C standards, including HTML 5, CSS 2.1 and large parts of CSS 3, CSS Mdia Queries, MathML, SVG, etc.

What do you dislike?

There is very little help documentation, so using it is a case of trial and error. However, the WYSIWYG interface makes it easy enough to feel comfortable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are an advanced programmer, you can switch to source view mode to code your page so there is something for beginners and BlueGriffon experts.

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

We used it for a while to design the company's website, it helped us save time in editing html5 and css, besides the fact that it uses the same rendering engine that Firefox means it is particularly good at designing websites for users of Firefox.

"A Nice Web Development Program"

What do you like best?

I like so much the tools that this program have, you can test your development in-live with the preview mode. This is one of the best thing of this program, this is what a nice web development program must to have. I like the plugins of this program too, very updated from the Blue Griffon's community.

What do you dislike?

This program can cause lag and crash to your pc (hard work) if you don't have a PC with more of the system requirements this program can crash and you can lose your work if you don't activate the backups. I switched to another program for that. HTML is not much updated, the team need to improve that thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to web develop with a program with live preview this is a nice app that you can use.

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

You can develop your website easyly and with a live preview of your work, this is a nice thing that all the development programs must to have in this year. This program is very updated from the community, not so much from the management team but is fine.

"Affordable WYSIWYG"

What do you like best?

BlueGriffon is perfect for my team! We aren't web designers, but do need to create html -based documents. I love that BlueGriffon allows us to create our docs quickly and easily. As we have an extremely limited budget, we appreciate BlueGriffon's low price.

What do you dislike?

I don't have a valid complaint. It would be nice if BlueGriffon could give us Adobe XD's simplicity and Dreamweaver's power at BlueGriffon's price. That doesn't fit within a sustainable business model, so we are happy with BlueGriffon as is.

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

Our LMS has great features, but they don't export well into another LMS (totally understandable). We use BlueGriffon to customize our content for students at an affordable price.

"Es un programa joven"

What do you like best?

Va directo al grano. Ordena tus webs como si fuesen modulares y así puedes comprender mejor de qué va la estructura.

What do you dislike?

Aún es incómodo manipular los elementos y moverlos libremente. Las ventanas emergentes no se auto ajustan. La visión de los elementos se ve limitada.

Recommendations to others considering the product

crear una interface más familiar. Los iconos están bien pero las ventanas desplegables requieren aún algo más de instrucción.

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

Complementó mis avances con dreamweaver, en el manejo de elementos animados más complejos.

"Great code editor, excelent web editor"

What do you like best?

I like the way the WYSIWYG works in this editor. I can adjust every component to the pixel. It is great for web design!

What do you dislike?

Well, the autocompletion does not work as fluid as in other code editors... Moreover, the amount of options could seem overwhelming at first. The learning curve could be high if you haven't used a web editor before.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Better than eclipse :)

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

We are designing a new web interface to reform public administration projects in Andalucia (Spain)
