BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide Web. BlueGriffon is an intuitive application that provides Web authors (beginners or more advanced) with a simple User Interface that allows creating attractive Web sites without requiring extensive technical knowledge about Web Standards. Because Gecko lives inside the app, the document you edit will look exactly the same in Firefox. Advanced users can always use the Source View to hard-code their page.

BlueGriffon is an open-source, cross-platform web editor and WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor. Developed by Daniel Glazman and maintained by the Disruptive Innovations team, it provides a user-friendly interface for designing and editing web pages without requiring extensive coding knowledge. The app is built on the Gecko rendering engine, the same engine used in Mozilla Firefox, ensuring compatibility with modern web standards.

Even if you did not create a Web page using BlueGriffon and you used other formats, the tool can deal with it, providing you with intuitive User Interface to modify your data.

It has its own CSS parser, JSCSSP. That parser is written in JavaScript and the CSS styles you author are understandable by all the browsers on the market. If a given CSS property or CSS value, even currently prefixed like -moz-transform, has a direct equivalent for one of the other browsers, It will output it. The program includes the SVG editor SVG Edit and you can then draw vector graphics from within Blue Griffon to embed them into your documents.
