A possibility to preview the site in Safari and other browsers would be nice.


Simply publish to a local folder and you can preview in Safari or another browser...

Command + I hides the Inspector

A way to preview without having to publish it would be far more convenient, don't you think?

Perfect!

While that seems to be a nice option to have, I wouldn't overdo it since it's very bad in terms of SEO. Graphic text can't be found by crawlers.
A valid point. But sometimes the appearance is more important. What I liked about iWeb, coming from a classical design background, was that it gave me absolute freedom of design. Just like designing for print. And in combination with Pages it was just killer. I've actually come to use Pages more and more instead of InDesign or QuarkXPress. I could design a poster or flyer in Pages, then copy and paste it into iWeb and with just minor changes, I could have a webpage that looked just like the printed material. It was wonderful.

And I think they should aim to get EasyWeb to that level of freedom of design.

EasyWeb makes it a breeze to use non web-safe fonts and have the text available to the SEO spiders giving you the best of both worlds.

Google now gives you a choice of over 600 fonts and Font Squirrel has a huge choice too...

Here's some more info and a link to a download with instructions for installing custom fonts on your Mac and how to use them in EasyWeb...

Yeah, but... What if I want to rotate the text 0.9 degrees counter clockwise and have another text partly covering the first?

Work arounds are fine and all. I'm just trying to make the point that in iWeb you had almost absolute freedom when you designed. That, to me, was the biggest reason for using iWeb instead of more conventional web design tools such as Dreamweaver etc.

And my hope is that EasyWeb will eventually develop into a true replacement for iWeb, which it in the current state isn't to me.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good start, and maybe the things I want/need won't be in it until version 2 or 3, and that's fine, but until then it will lack the fundamental things that made iWeb so great.
