Does anybody know of a program I can use offline in Ubuntu to help develop web pages, something like Mozilla Sea monkey, but not requiring a internet connection as my internet is slow and un-reliable as it is teatherd from a phone.

Any suggestions are welcome thanks.

place your html files in /var/www/ go to your local ip and use the file name to specify what file you want to test. Use any web browser you want.

Some web servers you should take a look at.

sudo apt-get install lamp
sudo apt-get install apache2
