For a start, as far as I know, amaya is not a browser with edit 
functionalities, it is an editor with browse functionallities. The prime 
target is editing, not browsing.

If you want alternatives with both browse and edit functionalities, have 
a look at netscape. Since version 2 (yep, in the previous century) it 
has a 'gold' version which has this edit functionality.

Netscapes successor Mozilla also has this functionallity: In mozilla 
1.7.13 for example: File -> Edit Page opens the editor.

in FireFox, I cannot find the edit functionallity and I donnot know if 
SeaMonkey (http://www.seamonkey-project.org/) has it. The features lists 
a composer: http://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/features.

You can forget about the microsoft tools, they are verry happy to call 
each other: IE calling FrontPage and reverse. Sometimes they hide this 
switch for each other.
