PALO ALTO, CA and SKELLEFTEA, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - June 23, 2015) - Ephox announced today it has completed a merger with Moxiecode.

This merger will help us focus on the needs of the developer community, provide additional support and accelerate the development of new features and products," said Andrew Roberts, CEO of Ephox.

For over 10 years TinyMCE has been at the forefront of WYSIWYG development. Today TinyMCE's open source community edition is downloaded 400,000 times a month and is widely recognized as the top open source WYSIWYG editor in the world.

Since Ephox's founding more than 15 years ago, Ephox has led WYSIWYG editor and content creation tool innovation. The merger of TinyMCE and Ephox truly brings together two world-class development teams which will serve the more than 2 million developers worldwide with a wider range of tools.
