Wix Launches Free HTML5 Editor That's Easy to Use
You know that Adobe Flash is on its way out ever since Steve Jobs refused to support it since the first iPad. Instead, the iPad supported HTML5 - a powerful web format that did almost everything Flash did.
In late 2011, Adobe announced that it lost the fight with HTML5 for interactive web supremacy. They also added that they will stop development of Flash Player on web browsers in favor of increasing Adobe's investment in HTML5.
Mashable also pointed out that now, even interactive web newbies can build their own HTML5 websites completely free with the help of websites like Wix.com. Basically, Wix.com has built a powerful "what you see is what you get" or WYSIWYG HTML 5 editing tool that allows you to edit almost every element you see on the webpage.
Recent examples of the magic of HTML5 include two interactive music experiences. Arcade Fire’s The Wilderness Downtown and OK Go x Pilobulos’ All Is Not Lost. Both were built with the Google Chrome team to showcase the advanced web technologies allowing people to see a new virtual world.
Wix.com says there’s no need to be a world-class web designer to use HTML5. The company unveiled a free HTML5 website builder with plenty of easy-to-use templates on Monday. The six-year-old company already has over 20 million free and premium users building flash websites using the myriad of DIY templates.
Wix built the new series of templates for people with small businesses, designers, photographers and corporations that want to take their web presence to the next level. There’s absolutely no need for code. Individuals can simply drag and drop different website features and type in words where needed.
