Anyone used Nvu?

Hello All -

Nvu (web authoring system) was just brought to my attention.

Have any of you heard of, or used, this? Is it any good/what is it comparable to, really? The website makes it sound pretty good . . .

Interested in your thoughts.

If you remember the "Composer" part of Netscape from back in the day, this is that same app, spiffed up and modernized a bit.

I have used NVU but prefer Quanta Plus. There are some others that are quit good, it just depends on your preference...

I have been doing my web work in Gedit ever since I switched to Linux. It works fine . . . I don't feel any great need for WYSIWYG, but I sometimes think I'm missing out on things that could speed up my productivity.

Probably will try out Nvu sometime . . .

Yes, I have used NVU. I am Macromedia Dreamweaver fan but as Dreamweaver is not available for Linux, so for those who wish to work on a Dreamweaver like web devevlopment tool for Linux, may use NVU
But, yes the features in NVU are nothing compared to Dreamweaver.
