HomeSite 1.0 is the first version of the HomeSite HTML editing tool that was created by independent programmer Nick Bradbury in July 1996.

Product historyEdit

Bradbury had originally written HomeSite in Delphi for speed and compactness to maintain his online comic website, Dexter. After he notified some shareware sites about it, he discovered HomeSite had been downloaded over a thousand times during the first night. [1] It was also positively received by trade magazines.[2] Microsoft made the first offer to acquire HomeSite, but Bradbury ended up taking a counter-offer from Allaire in March 1997 and continued working on HomeSite as a commercial product for 18 months.[1]
