Windows 95 Web Tools
These get used on the one lonely Compaq PC laptop we have here, at least
when it's not running Linux.
- For general HTML coding we use ... Notepad! Although this built in text
editor is plain and simple, we find it very handy. It's incredibly fast to
start, supports searches, word wrap, and takes up very little memory.
- When graphical development is needed, a combination of
Paint Shop Pro and
Design Painter provides a great set of tools and processes for all kinds
of art and design.
- We browse using the two top contenders,
both at version 3. They're both excellent, although they each have their
little advantages. Of course, we also do this so we can test our pages on
each platform under plenty of different browsers. That's just good design.
- For creating animated GIFs, the
GIF Construction Set is
amazingly useful. The Animated GIF Wizard makes it so easy to create
compressed animations that anyone can do it. And other tools let you
supercompress GIFs to make them load faster.
- For getting stuff around from all kinds of systems without breaking long
filenames, we use WinZip, a
shareware program that runs nearly every compression protocol know to mankind.
