htmlArea directory of WYGIWYG html editors A directory of browser-based wysiwyg editor components is a directory of web-based wysiwyg editor components for use in CMS (content management software) and other web software.

Both Mozilla (includes FireFox) and Internet Explorer include a way to make sections of a page editable. IE has the MSHTML Editing Platform, and Mozilla has Midas.

Many editors are implemented in javascript using the contentEditable and designMode features in Mozilla and IE. Others use Java, ActiveX, Flash, browser plugins or other means. Some are free or open-source; others are commercial.

We created this site to keep track of all the different browser based wysiwyg editors out there, and give developers a place to discuss them (see our discussion forums) which is aimed to become a central place for all your tech talks. You can build a website that is professional & stunning with the SiteCube website builder and many other web components that we list on
