Windows Live Writer Reloaded

My Favourites, Tips n Tricks, Tools, Windows

Microsoft‘s Windows Live Writer is a powerful desktop based weblog client and is currently the only product I like from Microsoft’s stable. The initial beta had lot of interesting features which made it a must have for any blogger.

Review of Windows Live Writer Beta 1

There are lot of free and licensed desktop weblog clients including Qumana but not a single client is as powerful and feature rich as Live writer. Beta 2 version of Live writer is now available and there are lots of new features added into the new version.

Feature Highlights:

  • Inline Spell Checking – From now on you no longer need to manually run the spell checker.
  • Inserting/Editing Tables – You can insert and edit tables. Nice add-on
  • Support for excerpts – “Split Post” option now allows you to insert the “more” tag in the posts. Previously this could be done only via the HTML Code view
  • Better integration of local and online edited posts.
  • New look and feel

    I have been using my browser all these days. Previously when I tried windows live I actually ended in screwing my blog. Now the new version is working like a breeze and has made my blogging life real simple.
