Best Wiki

One of the best technologies developed and improved during the last decade is the Wiki engine. With this web-based application every user is able to create a comprehensive knowledge base or an interactive website for any type of personal, corporate or social topic, and share it with the community

Wikis are growing in popularity because they are about as simple as any web app. Wikis will allow a individual or group of people to edit the website with little or no knowledge of coding. This simplicity means that any one will find them very easy to use and maintain
