    Google Web Designer

    I'm tired of writing my HTML and CSS, styling everything is just a pain in the you know what for me. I was looking for some free WYSIWYG web builders and I found Google Web Designer. From what they say, you can build HTML5 content, but it looks like they're aiming more towards ads. Has anyone used it before to make a web page? Also, what other alternatives do y'all know of that are free?

    Haven't tried it. Looks interesting. Might have to grab it onto my Kubuntu box later this weekend.
    I know what you mean about coding layouts ans css yourself. Usually what I do is go spellunking through Open Source Web Design - OSWD.org and find a design like, close to what I'm looking for, or has features I want... grab it and use it as a starting point. This lets me me focus on the content and the fine tunining and leaves the figuring out he css placement & flaots and other junk to someone else.

    Never heard of it before. I am going to have to check it out as well. Looks interesting to me. I also hate having to do the actual design. Most of my web work is a portal/cms type system so I use the same layout that I spent a lot of work on.

    After exploring that site a little more, looks like its only for designing Adsense ads for Google. I thought it was meant for HTML5 sites, but had features for adding google ads. hmm

    I haven't used it myself, but MS Expression Web is free and looks capable.
