- You can download it in PDF and PNG files.
- It’s mostly free (there will be a watermark on your CV if you use not-free resources).
Downside:
- Some of the templates are not practical due to too much color, elements for a professional resume.
- The web is kinda slow and difficult to navigate.

Crikey.
I've only ever used Word or some variant (like Open or Libre).
Most of the agents I use really don't like images or PDFs.
