Editors' Review

RapidWeaver is a Web design program. Its intended purpose is to bridge the gap between very basic, beginner-level Web design programs and advanced software that is intended for professionals. It does this by combining drag-and-drop design and simple themes with the ability to create custom-coded pages and alterations to your website.

Pros

Interface leads the way: When you first open RapidWeaver, the interface very smoothly guides you to where you need to go to get started. Basic prompts on the screen all make sense, and within minutes of installation you're building a website.

Great preinstalled themes: To make the design portion of building a website that much easier, RapidWeaver comes with a wide selection of preinstalled themes. The themes all look great, and immediately make your website look polished and professional even if you have no coding experience.

Drag-and-drop resources: If you have resources stored on your computer that you're going to want to use for your website, RapidWeaver makes utilizing them easy, as you can just drag and drop them into the control window to utilize them in your site building.

Cons

Uninspired blog feature: When you add a blog using the "add page" feature, the editor window that appears is very cramped and slightly confusing. It is not readily apparent how to use the blog editor.

Bottom Line

RapidWeaver for Mac is a great tool for people who know enough about Web design to want to stretch themselves beyond the confines of the most basic programs on the market. Although it has the capability to build very advanced websites, it is still an intuitive and easily understood program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of RapidWeaver for Mac 5.3.2.
