Can beginners get going quickly?
iWeb tried to bring classic Mac simplicity to web design and many of the apps here do exactly the same – in many cases by working very much like iWeb did.
EverWeb, RapidWeaver and Sandvox all include tutorials in their opening offers and have friendly, iWork-esque interfaces, and Sandvox can even import your existing iWeb website. If you’re coming to any of these apps from iWeb, or if you haven’t used a web design program before, all three will make you feel perfectly welcome.
Freeway Pro, WebAcappella and Flux aren’t unfriendly, but they are different from the other apps. Freeway Pro looks like a page layout program, while WebAcappella looks like part of Microsoft Office. Meanwhile, Flux V makes it clear that it’s for people who already know what they’re doing, populating the screen with stacks of information that’ll look like gibberish to a web beginner. It’s very nice and very fast to use, but if you don’t know your divs from your DOMs, Flux really isn’t the web building program for you.
EverWeb, RapidWeaver and Sandvox are very user friendly and remind us of iWeb.
