Serif WebPlus Alternatives and Similar Software

Serif is a graphic software developer with a rich history of excellence in design and WebPlus is part of that history. It's now discontinued, but the drag-and-drop website creator provided a very intuitive way to build sites visually. Fortunately, there's now no shortage of similar visual design apps.

Arguably, the most relevant feature would be a wysiwyg-editor since WebPlus was all about visual design. While many modern tools are online, there are some great desktop apps for Mac, Windows and Linux.

Most apps are commercial but some truly remarkable tools still exist in the open-source space.
