EditLive!

The installation process is quick and easy, but you have to install the Netscape plug-in separately - the main setup program creates an icon for Netscape installation, but the instructions don't mention that it won't install itself.

When you point your browser at a Web page that contains the appropriate codes, EditLive! is launched automatically and loads a specified page (not necessarily the one you're viewing). You can then use it to edit online materials with an interface much like that of a popular word processor. Saving your modified page will automatically update the original page on the server.

So far, so good, but there are lots of WYSIWYG Web editors already, so why do we need this one? The answer is of more interest to commercial service providers than individual users: the software enables clients to modify their own Web documents, while allowing administrators to control their degree of access. Almost any ability of this editor can be configured or restricted in the commercial version, from which files or parts of files the client is allowed to change, through to the fonts that can be used. This means that a company with a large Web site can, for example, easily allow employees to modify their own sections to update product information, without needing to worry about deviations from the official company style or accidental damage to important files.

EditLive! is hoping to find a market niche among companies with a lot of data to present on the Web, and its ability to specify the degree of freedom of clients makes it especially attractive in this role.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
