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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
