It seems we are never more than a few weeks away from some new Google technology, be that hardware, software, or just an update to one of their web services, and this new web designer tool is just the next evolution of that trend.
The tool is known simply as “Google Web Designer” and it is available now for free download in its current Beta form. It uses CSS and HTML5 in a powerful WYSIWYG editor, and while you can edit code by hand in many places, or completely if that is what you wish, Google’s software seems happy to do most of the hard work for you, allowing you to create pages in a similar fashion to crafting an image in Photoshop.
Becuase of the CSS and HTML5 features, its also (relatively) easy to create animation elements by using layers, a suite of 3D rendering tools and illustration features.
One of the most useful tools here is for those who need to create web based ads, since the default templates are there for AdMob and DoubleClick Studio.
Best of all, the software is of course free, so why not hit up the link www.google.com/webdesigner/ and take it out for a spin.
