Web Builders

Everyone is coming out with their own web builders, and Microsoft is no exception.  A while ago I discovered Microsoft Sway which is similar to Adobe Spark and other systems.  After designing a few web pages for people I realize the issues these types of tools are faced with.

  1. They are proprietary systems; They create beautiful single page “sites”, but after the site is developed you will be reliant on their product to update and maintain the site.
  2. They only make single pages; long scrolling pages with a long of content on it, but single pages
  3. And most importantly, most users do not know what they want in terms of content and images when they decide to develop a site.

With these limitations listed, I don’t think any of them can compete with the always free and flexible, although a bit more complicated, WordPress installations.
