Yes, it is a super editor, but its rendering engine lacks behind 
latest browsers development.  May be the best thing is to try to 
port it using one of the actively developed open source browser 
engines (Gecko or WebKit).  I don't think it is feasible to try to 
develop and maintain a browser engine independently in order to have 
a great Web authoring tool.
