Why Rich Text Editor?

Rich Text Editor is the industry-leading online html editor and we are proud that Rich Text Editor always serves as an inspiration for other editors. Now version 8.0 is designed from a different point of view from old versions and most editors.

#1 cross-browser support

Most available RTEs fail to support the full spectrum of A-Grade web browsers. Following 9 year old tradition of industry #1 cross-browser support, Rich Text Editor continues to offer even better quality and compatibility by supporting all major browsers: IE 6.0+, Firefox 2.0+, Mozilla 1.3+, Netscape 7+, Safari (1.3+), Opera 9.0, IE 9 and Chrome.

Cleanest html code

Most WYSIWYG editors are just JavaScript wrappers around the editing control built into browsers such as MSHTML control found in IE. They generate bad markups and then run code clean-up routines against it. By contrast, Rich Text Editor is built from the ground up to be a true XHTML editor in its own right.

Extremely small and fast

Most feature-rich WYSIWYG editors suffer long loading times due to large javascript files. Rich Text Editor only loads the necessaery scripts to client browsers. Numerous optimization methods have been applied. It's clean, compact, extremely fast-loading, but still powerful and efficient.

Cutting-edge features

From powerful online image management, easy to use file manager, to multiple image uploading, to online image editing, to PDF conversation.
