Wix LogoWix, the widely-used online website builder which is known with its Flash-based platform, has launched a HTML5 version.

The new website builder is now compatible with the majority of browsers, works on mobile too and loads much faster.

It is a well-designed/planned product where a basic computer user can't go wrong with anything and a designer feels the flexibility it provides.

Wix HTML5 Site Builder - Settings

There are 50+ ready-to-use templates (with multiple color palettes each) to choose from where you can use them as a base or build a website from scratch.

The websites are created/updated while browsing. You can select any element, edit them or add new items like content, images, videos.. anything.

Wix's HTML5 platform is completely drag 'n' drop enabled where you can move elements easily or copy/cut-paste them using the keyboard to work faster.

It allows creating new pages and adding components like a gallery, social widgets, good-looking buttons, contact forms, maps, Flickr gallery and much more.

Although things are very straightforward, the steps and menus are pretty guiding and you never get lost or confused.

Creating a website with Wix is free and premium features (like using a custom domain or analytics support) requires a premium account.
