Free Microsoft FrontPage Alternative For Mac OS

By Sidharth | Features

nvu-logoMicrosoft FrontPage is a popular WYSIWYG editor used to manage website pages. Though there are a recognizable set of management tools but Frontpage won’t pass the standard of coding (html/xhtml), for this reason we need a Microsoft Frontpage alternative. For making html pages the best alternative can be Dreamweaver but it’s not free and comes with a 30-days trial pack!

Mac OS users can have free Microsoft Frontpage alternative on their desktop. Though there are various alternatives for Frontpage on MAC but here I’ve mentioned some of the popular freeware that are enough to carry out the tasks achieved by Frontpage editor.

NVU – A popular open source and the best Mac alternative for Microsoft Front page, NVU has all the robust features that are in Dreamweaver or Frontpage program.

Is Komposer compatible with FrontPage. I have used frontpage with my windows PC for years to update our site. But now we all use macs and am not sure how to update our site. Do I have to start from scratch with a new mac app? Any suggestions? Thanks!

I lied, Komposer is way better than NVU. NVU is too buggy. It crashed 3 times in the first 10 minutes.
