About SeaMonkey

SeaMonkey is a Mozilla project all-in-one Internet application suite. It includes a web browser, email and newsgroup client, Instant Messaging IRC chat client, and composer—the web page editor. One of the nice things about using SeaMonkey is that you have the browser built-in already so testing is a breeze. Plus it's a free WYSIWYG editor with embedded FTP to publish your web pages.

I don't like that it doesn't have HTML5 or CSS3 support, and you can't change the doctype, even for new pages. But it is a free WYSIWYG editor, which there aren't many of.
