XStandard Now Available For Safari On Mac OS X!

By Ben Nadel on just released a beta for the XStandard WYSIWYG editor for Safari on Mac OS X. Up until now, myself (and all my new clients) have been using the XStandard editor on Windows machines. This is not a problem as the world is on Windows machines (oh settle down!), but this new release just means that practically no one is limited! How freakin' cool is this!

From my initial testing, this still works with my ColdFusion Web Service solution that I built for integration into my ColdFusion based content management systems. So that's nice to know. But then again, there is no real reason that it shouldn't - it's all just SOAP calls.

From a usability standpoint, it works in pretty much the same way, with some interface differences and a new format in license file. But otherwise, it's still the same sweet-ass WYSIWYG editor. If you don't believe me, check out's chart on why they are so awesome.

Even on the Mac, it's the same greater editor:

... and the same fantastic, XHTML compliant code:

Life just got a lot more cozy :)

Thanks for the nice description.
I have gone through your blog and seems to me that your are someone worth one of the corner.

Good Luck Ben.

Since you wrote this, the world is no longer on Windows machines. :|
Can you tell me which browser, if any, can a mac ( Lion o/s) use to successfully edit a page via the WYSIWYG editor created by XStandard? Thanks,
