Mainstay Debuts OmniEdit(tm) – Free Webpage Editing
Provides First Universal, Browser-Based Webpage Editor Service

Camarillo, CA, December 15, 1999 – Mainstay today opened, a
website providing a free application service to quickly edit web pages
anytime, anywhere, using only a web browser. OmniEdit liberates webmasters
from their desktop application-based web page editor and FTP client
applications and gives them the freedom to edit a web page wherever they
have web access. OmniEdit is the first remote web editing system that can
be used to edit any existing website. A user simply visits the
website, enters their FTP name, password, and path for any web page to
which they have access. A text editor window opens displaying the HTML
code, ready for editing. After making changes, the user clicks a “Save”
button and their web page is automatically modified. OmniEdit works with
any website and requires absolutely no set-up of any kind. OmniEdit
supports all popular browsers including Microsoft Internet Explorer,
Netscape Navigator, and the AOL browser on Windows 95/98/NT, Macintosh and

OmniEdit enables a user to correct a typo, update a headline, price, and
date, or even correct a broken or changed link, on the fly, right in a
browser. More extensive edits can also be done. Using, there’s
no need to start an FTP application, find a source file, or download the
file from the web, start a web page editor, make the changes, save the
changes, then re-upload the file.

Web pages can be changed from anywhere in the world using nothing more than
a web browser. OmniEdit eliminates the time wasted “round-tripping” web
files back and forth to the web server, or needlessly searching for HTML
files on a local hard disk. It also may eliminate a frantic call back to
the office, trying to talk someone through making a simple change.

“It always seems that you notice a problem on your website when you are out
of the office, and away from your own computer” says Tom Nalevanko,
president of Mainstay. “OmniEdit gives you a way to edit any page right
there; if you can see a problem, you can fix the problem — right in the

OmniEdit maintains the same level of security enjoyed by web pages today.
In fact, OmniEdit can be thought of as a transparent FTP client embedded in
a web page. Like all FTP clients, both a name and a password are necessary
for read/write access to web pages.

OmniEdit, an advertising supported service, is now available for public use
at no charge. For more information, contact Lance Merker at (805) 484-9400,
