Note - there is a small bug in under Wine which prevents FreeWeb from being able to launch URLs into your browser. Therefore functions like 'Help/User Manual', or 'View Site' won't work.

Once FreeWeb gains popularity, be assured that it will be promptly ported to native Linux and released.
Sorry folks, there is no Macintosh version of FreeWeb. (Macintosh C++ developers please get in touch.
If someone is willing to donate us a Macintosh, with a decent C/C++ development environment (or the funds to purchase these), then work will commence on a native Macintosh version.
