Arachnophilia
A powerful feature-packed HTML editor available for free. Current Version: 5.3, build 2132 (12/03/2006). Instead of freeware, this software is "careware" - an Interesting concept introduced by Paul Lutus.
So here is my deal: stop whining for an hour, a day, a week, your choice, and you will have earned your copy of Arachnophilia. Say encouraging words to young people, make them feel welcome on the planet Earth (many do not). Show by example that we don't need all we have in order to be happy and productive.

I admit that I couldn't find a few topics I was searching for but the great part is that you can add your own articles to it until someone else edits it.
