Xara Web Designer

Xara Web Designer 18.0

This is an easy template based solution that gives you total page design freedom

Xara Web Designer can help you create web sites even if you have poor skills as a web developer. However, you should be aware that creating a web page is not always as easy as it seems. Luckily, besides having a nicely-designed and intuitive interface, the application allows you to start from beautiful templates and even provides a sample project. Advanced users can create more customized pages starting from blank pages as well.

As most modern editors, Xara Web Designer is a WYSIWYG tool, so you will be in total control of the appearance of your pages. Thus, it allows you to position objects exactly where you want them to appear. Besides, it supports a wide array of objects, including text, photographs, graphics, and interactive elements. It also has the advantage of letting you repel text around irregular shapes and photos. In addition, it supports not only bitmaps but vector graphics as well. Fortunately, this web-page editor supports working with CSS layers. In addition, the pages created can be shown on any browser or operating system because they meet most current web standards.

All in all, Xara Web Designer is an excellent web editor. As additional assets, this tool comes with a set of widgets, such as those linking to social and e-commerce sites. Unfortunately, advanced users can rightly complain that some of the predesigned elements are not customizable enough.
