    Lightbulb Boxy SVG Editor

    Just about everything the Xara Desktop Application (XDA) ought to be: https://boxy-svg.com/.

    I have just started the 15-trial and can immediately see how powerful it is.
    Definitely worth $10(+VAT)/yr for the power it brings to the XDA.

    To be clear, you need to place the <svg> tags into a Placeholder code (body) or Xara will render all as a group of objects. A mouthful, but for simple objects, it is Copy & Paste.
    Embedding SVGs also reduces the number of HTML calls so your websites could be slicker.

    With an SVG, you can manipulate any part of it with JS and CSS for clicks and rollovers or even splash effects.

    Oh, it has a user interface that does not get in the way.
    The good thing is most of the UI is very familiar.
    Manipulate shapes through Geometry and Elements...

    For the Web app it will not work with the Firefox browser.

    The designer does say that https://boxy-svg.com/requirements & https://boxy-svg.com/ideas/150/make-...omium-browsers.

    I use Vivaldi by choice, mainly for persistence. The "best" browser these days is Edge.

    It is more compliant with the standards. It seems to have faster performance. It is more stable. it allows the setting up of off-line applications. Vivaldi is easier than FF in the customisation stakes.

    I use FF, V & Chrome almost interchangeably.

    dosn't seem so long a ago you had little good to say about edge.... still, it has moved on a lot

    I can set firefox not to automatically play media on a any site I visit; can't do that on edge, it decides for itself 'based on my previous behaviour' whether to play automatically or not, and that is not what I want

    just a small example of why, as a user, I prefer the fox;

    it's not slow, certainly no slower than edge when browsing

    I tried vivaldi couple of years ago, but never really took to it

    This is drifting from the original post.

    Boxy SVG Editor doesn't run in Firefox.
    Boxy does have an off-line app mode, which creates an MS Edge App, and if I had not mentioned it, most would have carried on with their proper browser.
    If you try the App, its About is impressive, covering all its sources.
