Nvu experiences an array of challenges in the WYSIWYG HTML editing software market, the first being the large number of alternative software. There are over 30 similar and readily available software as Nvu, such as Adobe Dreamweaver, CKEditor, Microsoft Visual Studio, Developer Express, EZGenerator, CoffeeCup Visual Site Designer, Open BEXI, Quanta Plus and Jimdo just to name a few. Despite the competition Nvu has managed to stand the challenge as it remains the ideal WYSIWYG HTML editor favored by many users. Nvu’s most formidable competitor is Joomla.
With the ability to work off the website account, Joomla is very portable with all the necessary databases required to work away from your computer. It also has additional features that can be downloaded including Blolcklist, Chronos Forms and Fireboard. These are very interesting features but Nvu remains competitive regardless. As opensource freeware available for both Windows and Linux systems Nvu is useful when a user needs full control over the layout of the page, this is possible as Nvu allows page coding using HTML. Another astounding feature with Nvu is that a user can publish their website directly from the application with one click once it is ready for viewing.
