Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.
Joomla is used all over the world to power Web sites of all shapes and sizes. For example:

We have been using JOOMLA since 2005. growing with it since Joomla 1.5 until now where we are awaiting Joomla 3.4.
Before that, we were aware of clients' increasing need for stable, interactive, and particularly extendable, web sites. Using ou many years of programming experience, we spent about 4 years developing Go4-CMS a fully customizable custom CMS (Content Management System) forsome of our more demanding customers.
Then, when we were introduced to JOOMLA, everything changed! EVERYTHING we had on our wish-list for our own CMS - and much more! - was there! And basically free. We immediately cancelled all further developments, and migrated our clients to JOOMLA.
Here are some of the Joomla! features you will love.
