    Apple has discontinued iWeb and it will no longer be updated.

     

    There is a new site builder that works a lot like iWeb. There is a facebook page for it here;

    http://facebook.com/easyweb

     

    I have used the beta copy and have found it to be very much like iweb.

    Well no.  Apple withdrew support for iWeb a long time ago now and stopped selling iLife in stores and online and once MobileMe went in favour of iCloud at the end of June last year, there was no longer any need for iWeb, so no, there will be no update.

     

    You need to look elsewhere at the alternatives such as RapidWeaver, Sandvox, Freeway Pro/Express 6, Flux 4 and WebAcappella 4.  These are all reasonable alternatives and with most of these you can download a trial version to see if you like it before you buy.  RapidWeaver can get expensive though as you need to download and purchase a lot os extras for it to make it work.

     

    There is Easyweb that is being developed by Rage Software, but to be able to use this when it does come out, you'll need to sign up for a hosting account with Rage for an annual cost of $99 a year.  You can access the beta version for this but a version that does not require their hosting will not be available for sometime yet.

     

    Check out the other alternatives in the meantime though.  They are many and varied, but you can always continue to use iWeb - it is an app and will still work with Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion as long as you have iWeb 09.

    Why not show us some webpages you made with easyweb?

     

    I'm especially interested in what they claim "its super powerful HTML Snippet widget".

     

    I want to be impressed. Make me drool. Hahaha!

    I like Adobe's Muse as a replacement though it is one of the most expensive alternatives @ $180 a year or  $600 a year for all of Adobe's Applications.

     

    WebAcappella 4 also has some nice features as well.

     

    Rage's EasyWeb is still in the beta testing phase and still has a little ways to go yet ( just in my opinion )

     

    I'm especially interested in what they claim "its super powerful HTML Snippet widget".

    it seems that a lot of it's functionality is dependant on HTML snippets at least at this time anyways
