Last year Google unveiled the Google Web Designer as a program to put out clean, human-readable HTML5 code and this WYSIWYG editor can take advantage of the full realm of new HTML5 and JavaScript possibilities. That tool for web developers is now finally available to Linux users.

The Google Web Designer is free to use and takes on Dreamweaver and other applications with its web illustration tools, design and code views, full 3D authoring support, animation modes, and its designed to produce an adaptable web page/ad that will converge to any screen size whether it be a desktop / tablet / mobile device.

With yesterday's Web Design 1.0.5 release (release notes) there is now Linux support and installers have been spun for Ubuntu, Debian, openSUSE, and Fedora.

Google Web Designer can be downloaded from its project site along with finding more information on this closed-source but useful HTML5 WYSIWYG web editor. This is great news considering that BlueGriffon, Kompozer, and the other (open-source) Linux-native WYSIWYG web design tools generally fall well short of the Windows programs and the array of professional web design solutions.
