    Thanks for the review of the other applications available out there for all of us to choose from and try out 🙂

  2. Yeah, I remember when I was still coding HTML using Homesite and Dreamweaver for days just to produce a simple website. Now, you can actually get that and more in just a few minutes. Wix and Weebly are my favorite tools. Google Sites is also great.

  3. Saffron… I agree with you on that. Learning bit of HTML could be very useful. It always gives you more freedom with the site that you’ll create. These tools are for those people who have no or little coding knowledge and besides, it makes the job done a lot faster.

    Thanks for the freewebs update. I should have included it in the list if I’ve known about it before I wrote the article.
