Amaya (formerly Amaya World) is a free and open source WYSIWYG web authoring tool with browsing abilities.
It was created by a structured editor project at the INRIA, a French national research institution, and later adopted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as their testbed for web standards; a role it took over from the Arena web browser.
Amaya has relatively low system requirements compared with other modern web browsers, so is sometimes considered a "lightweight" browser.
Ramzi Guetari joined the team in October 1996. Daniel Veillard was responsible for the integration of CSS in Amaya and maintained the Linux version.
- Access Keys
- Caret Navigation
- Page Zooming
- Password Management
- Spell Checking
- Transport protocols
- Support for CSS, MathML, SVG, RDF and Xpointer
In addition, it runs on Linux, Mac, and Windows, so regardless which OS you are using, you will be able to use Amaya´s web editor for your coding project.
Codebase timeline 
Amaya is a direct descendant of the Grif WYSIWYG SGML editor created by Vincent Quint and Irène Vatton at INRIA in the early 1980s, and of the HTML editor Symposia, itself based on Grif, both developed and sold by French software company Grif SA.
Originally designed as a structured text editor (predating SGML) and later as an HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) editor, it was then expanded to include XML-based capabilities such as XHTML, MathML and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).
Amaya displays free and open image formats such as PNG and SVG, as well as a subset of SVG animation.
A test bed application 
It was used as a test-bed for new web technologies that were not supported in major browsers.
Amaya is the first client that supported the RDF annotation schema using XPointer. The browser is available for Linux, Windows (NT and 95), Mac OS X, AmigaOS, SPARC / Solaris, AIX, OSF/1.
Naming and logo 
Tamaya was formerly the name of Amaya. Tamaya is the name of the tree represented in the logo. Tamaya is used by a French company and is trademarked so the developers chose to drop the first letter to make it Amaya.
