Editors' Review

Flux 4 for Mac aims to make website creation easier by allowing you to do more things automatically and with less coding. In terms of features, you will find what you expect from a standard website editor, as well as an extensions gallery for additional functionality.

Pros

WYSIWYG website editing: With Flux 4 for Mac you can build a website in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get manner. Dragging elements and reorganizing them automatically generates the respective code.

Plug-in support: Flux 4 for Mac offers a catalog of packages that can extend the app's functionality and save you time by providing objects you can directly insert into your website in order to accomplish a given goal. These packages include javascript effect libraries, image overlays, and even whole image galleries.

Multiple resolution support: The software supports building responsive sites by allowing you to change how the site looks on different resolutions, including mobile devices. And in case you don't see the resolution you want, you can create it.

Cons

Steep price tag: The biggest drawback is the price tag, especially since there are a lot of cheaper and even free solutions with similar capabilities available online. On the plus side, the trial option allows you to test the app without making a purchase.

Bottom Line

If you build websites as a hobby, you should definitely give Flux 4 for Mac a go. The interface, while overwhelming at times, is easy to work with and should feel familiar to people who have prior experience designing websites. On the other hand, if you're starting from scratch, an easier tool might be a better fit.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Flux for Mac 4.0.38.
