Best Free Webmaster Software and Scripts
A compiled list of our top choices for webmasters on a limited budget or those who are just plan cheap.
Free HTML / WYSIWYG Editors
NVU – For Linux, Windows or Mac. Highly recommended!
Amaya – W3C’s Editor/Browser, so you know it’s gotta be good.
1st Page 2000 – For those who don’t like to WYSIWYG it.
Free Graphic Editors and Tools:
The Gimp – This graphics editor has been around for awhile, and can do just about everything Photoshop can.
Pixie – Color picker that can get the HEX codes off of anything you can see on your monitor. Very spiffy tool from Nattyware.
IrfanView – Lightweight multipurpose graphic editor/viewer. Great for converting between image formats, resizing, etc.
Adsen Favicon – Adsen FavIcon is a simple favion freeware creator that lets people make a fav icon for their website, which shows up in IE’s favorites.
FileZilla – Spiffy FTP client. Highly recommended.
Have any other FTP software suggestions? Use our comment form. 🙂
Because testing in IE only is not a good idea 😉
FireFox – Is slowly taking a chunk of the web browser market, making up about 20% of surfers.
Opera – Used to be free, then was not free… and is once again free. Get it before they change their mind.
Best Free Scripts:
PhpBB – Forum software, with a large user-base and many mods and hacks available.
WordPress – WordPress is a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. In other words – it’s good Blog software.
