PageMill (1995-2000) was one of the first WYSIWYG HTML editors for the World Wide Web.

Adobe Systems released PageMill 1.0 in late 1994. It was considered revolutionary at the time as it was the first HTML editor which was considered user friendly, cited as the "PageMaker of the WWW".[1] This first version, however, was also criticized for lacking items such as a spell-checker and support for creating HTML tables.[1]

Adobe PageMill 2.0, which was introduced in early 1997, corrected these issues with a package that, according to one review, "adds more features than I have fingers and toes… PageMill with its tables, frames, graphics, and support for form interfaces, makes it easy to lay out a page".[2]

Adobe PageMill 3.0, which was released in early 1999, supported embedded font commands and a site-management feature. It was discontinued in February, 2000 due to the development and promotion of Adobe GoLive.[3] A later patch, still available from Adobe, fixed a problem with FTP upload.


A major competitor to PageMill 2.0 was the popular HTML editor Macromedia Dreamweaver, first released in 1997. Adobe Systems bought Macromedia in 2005 and therefore owns Dreamweaver, now called Adobe Dreamweaver.

PageMill was often bundled with other products such as scanners or promotional CD-ROMs, rather than sold as a stand-alone product like its better known competitors.
