Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a “new view”) is a cross-platform, open source web authoring application that has been described as a poor man’s Dreamweaver. One, because it does bare some visual similarities to Dreamweaver, and two, because it’s totally free! That’s right web fans, it’s free. Nvu is offered in Mac, Windows, and Linux versions, and can be downloaded from here.
I first heard of Nvu a few weeks ago. I haven’t had time to really test it, but I did play around with it a little. It seems to be a pretty nice little app, offering most of the standard features that you would expect from a WYSIWYG web-authoring tool. Definitely worth looking into if you don’t want to drop the cash for either Dreamweaver, or GoLive.
