User in­ter­face

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.
