QuarkXPress is a page layout application for Mac OS X and Windows, produced by Quark, Inc. The first version was released in 1987. XTensions technology, which allows developers to create custom software add-ons for Quark products, was introduced in 1989. QuarkXPress Passport is QuarkXPress with the added ability to handle multiple language documents.

Although there are similar applications for the home and small office market, such as Adobe PageMaker, CorelDraw and Microsoft Publisher, QuarkXPress has long been the dominant application for professional page layout. Adobe InDesign – launched as a direct competitor – was slow to gather speed, but outsold QuarkXPress in 2002 as Quark had not yet released a Mac OS X-native version of XPress.

QuarkXPress' current installed base is still larger than that of InDesign, though this does not reflect actual number of users or current sales.

The current version is 4.1.1, which includes bug fixes as well as the ability to save documents in version 3.3 format, among other things.
