Create HTML5 and CSS3 driven web sites with BlueGriffon

BlueGriffon is a powerful WYSIWYG HTML editor based on Firefox's Gecko engine.

Strong standards support means the program can open and edit just about any web page - HTML 4, XHTML 1 and HTML 5 (both HTML and XML serializations) - whether it was created by BlueGriffon, or not.

While normally the program works in WYSIWYG mode, you can also freely edit your page source, if you prefer a more hands-on approach.

And elsewhere, a custom CSS parser ensures your styles work just as you'd expect on all modern browsers; there's a built-in SVG editor; and the program is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, so it's easy to work on your projects wherever you might be.

While the web editor itself is free of charge, there are a number of add-ons available that could quickly bump up the price. If you want to easily create tables using CSS, count the number of words on a page, create thumbnails or use code snippets, extensions are available for a small fee - individually they do not cost much, but the price can soon mount up if you need several.

BlueGriffon is a strange mix of very basic and more advanced tools. The tools available may seem limited at first, but even those unversed in code will find that advanced control of page elements is afforded to them through the guided use of CSS3.

What's new in 3 (see changelog for more)?

- Certainly the most powerful Responsive Design editor of all Wysiwyg editors!

Verdict:

A web editor for intermediate coders, BlueGriffon is fairly impressive, but is slightly lacking in features, and the paid-for add-ons reduce appeal somewhat.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
