Composer Voted Third Best Web Development Tool in Builder.com Readers' Choice Awards

Monday December 1st, 2003

irongut writes in with news that Mozilla Composer 1.5 came third in the Best Web Development Tool category of the CNET Builder.com 2nd Annual Readers' Choice Awards: "Their commentary says: 'Mozilla's relatively high showing is a bit of a surprise because, frankly, I never considered it to be a development tool. Perhaps those members using Mozilla would like to share with us what they like about it as a Web development tool.' Obviously they've never heard of Venkman."

I use Mozilla Composer 1.5 and Taco HTML edit 1.5 for a site with thousand of files and hundreds of html pages and it is definitely heavily multimedia. I think there is a big difference in those who hand craft each page individually with quality content and those who mass produce sites that all look the same. I do the former and Mozilla works fine for that. Mozilla is more comparable to Contribute or Freeway Express though than Dreamweaver. Something like Dreamweaver is only needed at a huge code intensive sites. Composer handles Flash and other plugins fine, although I wouldn't trust it with JavaScript. The one problem I have with it is if I cut and paste graphics, they come in absolutely linked. <http://homepage.mac.com/bearyandbow>
