I’ve been playing with the very early version of the Synthasite web site creator service and have come away impressed in parts and disappointed in others. It’s very ‘test preview’ which means that it’s slow to use, which can be very frustrating when you’re trying to slap a site together fast (which after all is what these tools are all about).
The nice bits are the drag and drop and relentlessly Ajaxian interface. The bad bits are the overly complicated componentisation and the relentlessly Ajaxian interface. For my money, Weebly does the same job much better, albeit with less flexibility and far fewer customisation options. Check it out for yourself and see what you think.
Synthasite is about revolutionising Web Publishing. We’re building an awesome browser based AJAXified website construction / mashup tool that allows you to assemble your website from any PC. No more are your applications and files stuck on the office PC. Ever lost a file? Not with Synthasite.
