Google Pages – Google enters the WYSIWYG page editing market

Saturday, February 25th, 2006 at 11:48 am

I just stumbled upon Google Pages, which seems to be a cleaner geocities/myspace/homestead. You can create web pages in a live editing WYSIWYG environment and choose a style and a layout. The resulting code is not as grim as I expected it:

Googlepages creates CSS layouts with embedded styles, which is not really perfect, but a step in the right direction. You can edit, publish and unpublish pages quite easily. It seems even adult content is all right to publish, but I will not test that now! I created the demo page in FireFox 1.5 on PC, as Googlepages so far does neither support Safari, Camino nor Firefox on my Mac.

I’d like to see a chance to submit templates…
