About RapidWeaver

The visual route for designing a website, commonly called “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG), aims to make designing a website a remarkably simple process. RapidWeaver is the perfect tool to complement this approach, and draws many similarities with Apple’s iWeb. Although similar, it goes further in many areas to offer a fairly powerful tool for website design. Over 40 themes, and some useful plugins, make it a solid tool for designing a personal site.

Our Review of RapidWeaver

If you’d like to find out more about RapidWeaver, our review is a great place to start. Here’s a quick summary of what we found:

A solid visual web design tool, with a comprehensive range of features and a decent set of themes. Not for the advanced designer, but brilliant for those dabbling in a personal site. If you’re looking for a visual design tool with slightly more power than iWeb, RapidWeaver is likely to fit the bill perfectly.
