Freeway Pro is a Web site design and maintenance tool that offers professional-level features without requiring any coding knowledge.

Freeway's Mac-style, multipane interface should feel familiar to users of other design programs, with its simple toolbar, a list of your site's pages in a pane on the left (including master pages), a main window showing the current selected page, and numerous floating palettes for formatting and settings. Less experienced Web designers will find a lot to like here, including Freeway's customizable templates, WYSIWYG and drag-and-drop editing, and the way the app handles everything code-related in the background, from integrating shopping carts to optimizing images and dynamically managing links. More experienced web designers will like the improved upload abilities (with support for SFTP and FTP-SSL) and how Freeway puts a premium on creating standards-compliant code (including fast CSS-based menus).

With its comprehensive feature set and numerous tutorials--including several related to building sites for iOS devices--Freeway is a solid all-around Web design tool for pro users regardless of skill level. More casual users might want to check out the lower-powered (and cheaper) Freeway Express.
