Web design can be a daunting thing if you don't know anything about CSS, HTML and all the other jargon that surrounds it.

There have been many attempts to bring web design to the masses - Apple's iWeb being one of the most notable (and disappointing) - but Flux 2 is widely considered to be one of the better efforts in the WYSIWYG web design application arena. Flux 1 users won't be disappointed by this latest incarnation and new users will be impressed by its all-round elegance, ease of use and power.

Flux 2 builds on Flux's excellent CSS features allowing you to edit CSS in the built-in code editor, or with the easy-to-use style editor, with changes being displayed in real time. The WYSIWYG page editor enables you to move elements around a page, alter their size, and tweak the margins with absolutely no CSS knowledge at all. The page editor is a genuine pleasure to use, allowing your imagination to run riot while you add new elements, tables, lists, images, movies, sounds and many other elements.

Flux 2 goes much further than those WYSIWYG web editors that only offer rigid templates and limited design power.
