RapidWeaver occupies a middle ground between entry-level Web design applications like iWeb and the big-gun programs intended for Web design professionals. You still get access to higher-powered features (especially with the use of plug-ins and code snippets), but RapidWeaver is never daunting, focusing on simplicity over flexibility. You get all the tools you need to quickly create attractive, relatively complex Web sites--including easy integration of blogs, images, and video--without any coding and using a visually appealing interface that's so intuitive you'll barely have to crack a manual.
RapidWeaver offers a fast, sensible workflow, giving you many possibilities for mix-and-match customization with its use of templates and themes (including many available from third-party developers, so you don't have to worry about your site looking like everybody else's). Plus, RapidWeaver puts a premium on generating clean, compact code, so your site is more likely to load quickly and you can be more sure that what you see is what your users will get.
RapidWeaver is a next-generation web design application to help you easily create professional looking web sites in minutes. No knowledge of complex code is required, RapidWeaver will take care of all that for you. RapidWeaver now produces 100% XHTML & CSS based websites.
