Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

About a year ago, I started maintaining the Web Editors page to supply a relatively up-to-date list of WYSIWYG rich text web editors that can be used in a web page for editing, also known as "through the web" editors.  The list is separated into "open source" and "commercial" editors.  It has become one of the most heavily hit pages on our web site, despite having little to do with our software.  I have always encouraged feedback on the page, and have gotten many more notes from users and vendors recently, so there are several new editors listed. including CuteEditor for .netWhizzywig and widgEditor.  One has been de-listed at the request of the provider, who no longer sells it.

One sign of the popularity of the page, which mostly seems popular because it is not many years out of date, is the results of a search for "WYSIWYG editors" on Google (edited slightly to remove sponsored links and shift to fit in smaller image):

Another sign is that until recently, our list was top of the search for "Through the web", "web editors" and third on the list for "WYSIWYG", but that various vendors have been working really hard to get ahead of our page.  Pretty funny for a free resource page to be such competition.
