easy peasy website building

List of responsive and other Desktop Web Design Software

A bit of English as a second language. This is the only article I have seen that directly gives a number of points of comparison for the group of programs that try to build a website without necessarily falling into code.  Yet not getting dead-ended too easily.  Note that real significant advantages are considered, such as CMS capability, or whether online work is possible.

These six are given full sections, although the last two are a little tame.

Serif WebPlus X8
Xara Web Designer
Website X5
WebEasy Professional 10
EZ Generator

Quick mention to:

WYSIWYG Web builder
NetObjects Website Designer
Xsite Pro 
Webpage Maker 

I have seen a friend use SiteSpinner actually make a decent static site - www.sinaiticus.net.
NetObjects I thought has its own subculture.


He does not go into the Wix and Weebly type of experience of online building (which would likely be considered too basic). (Similarly the various tools on web hosts.)

Top 10 Alternatives to Weebly Website Builder

Wix vs Squarespace vs Virb vs Weebly vs Jimdo vs WordPress Theme Builders


He does not go into the CMS/WordPress experience in this article, even though he is a WP developer. 


In my own case, the two tools most likely to be used this year:

WordPress (working with a biz already using it on ecommerce with woocommerce so my skills and learning could transfer, thus other CMS are less significant)
Maybe use something like the Editor theme here:

Serif WebPlus (picked up recently on Bits)


Possible consideration
Weebly  (apparently have a good blog platform, which might fit some very simple stuff I want to do on some topics) Blogger is possible here, too.


Lots of good tools to consider, time is limited.  Wordpress biz involvement takes away from Squarespace, Website Baker, etc. possibility.
