TYPOlight has been a well-known CMS for years, and even after it re-branded users still kept up with it and currently hold it in high respect.

Contao uses an intuitive graphical user interface that successfully blends Ajax and Web 2.0 technologies for optimal usability and performance.

This successful mesh of technologies makes working with Contao an easy task, while also still providing the in-depth access most developers yearn from high-grade CMS products.

If WordPress is known for blogging, Drupal for complex websites and phpBB for forums, then Contao is most known for its higher degree of complexity that recommends it for large scale projects, portals and Intranets.

This means working with Contao can sometime be a little bit tricky and is recommended only for developers with a greater knowledge of PHP, regardless of the presence of a nice and fast UI in the Contao backend.

But that doesn't mean Contao is useless or hard to work with. It means you got to accept and learn to use the right tool for the right job.
