Remember iWeb? It was part of the iLife suite of apps not too long ago, and it allowed you to make websites simply and without having to know a stitch of code. Sure, it did have its limitations, but it got the job done. Sort of.
I remember using iWeb to build my first website, and it looked pretty darn good. But then I found RapidWeaver and saw just how much more my website could be. The creation interfaces weren’t too different, which was a bonus – and it let me amp up that first website several notches above what iWeb could. And now you can get RapidWeaver 5 to help you take your website to beautiful and powerful new heights for only $49 thanks to iPhone Hacks Deals.
