Great wysiwyg website builder

Positive Comment by Thelle
about Squarespace and Webflow Dec 2013

Squarespace is the best and most powerful wysiwyg website builder I've ever tried - they do many things right, but I'd like to be able to control the look on a more detailed level without going into coding. It has build in blogging, many useful predefined elements like webforms, payment-handeling, video-embeding and beautiful controls for adding content. Plus a lot of useful integrations to for example Small Google Analytics iconGoogle Analytics, Small MailChimp iconMailChimp and Small Shopify iconShopify.

On top of that Squarespace has a beta running with full control of CSS, JS, Git and SFTP is interesting, but requires that you really dig though the code.

For more detailed control of the design Small Webflow iconWebflow is simply awesome and lets you interact with almost every bit of the responsive-design in wysiwyg-mode. It also let's has lightweight version control and extremely easy deployment. On top of that you are able to export the code for hosting externally.
