Breaking News: Wix Unveils HTML5 Website Builder!

After months of planning, tuning and tweaking, we are thrilled to announce the official launch of our new HTML5 website builder! This powerful, drag & drop new platform enables you to create amazing  websites that are functional, usable, and fully accessible for everyone. Our new  HTML 5 website builder brings together two unique qualities: the newest, most advanced technology and the same ease of use that makes nearly 20,000,000 users choose our products.

We created the new HTML5 editor with thought of giving Wix users an ultimate website-building experience with full control over every design element. Here are some of the standout features you’ll find in the new HTML5 editor:

  • Get full accessibility on all devices – desktops, tablets & smartphones
  • Make your site social-friendly with more tools for sharing your content

And there’s so much more! Just visit this link, choose an HTML template and see for yourself!

Wix’s new HTML5 editor marks our vision of putting YOU in the driver’s seat – On top of choosing a template, layout and design, you now get to choose the very technology you’d like to build your website with. Flash fans will be able to use our Flash editor just as they have before, and we will keep developing and updating our Flash product. The new HTML5 editor simply means that instead of having a single option, you now have two: two options, two technologies, one satisfied client.

You will find a great selection of HTML5 templates waiting for you on Wix  (and we will be adding many more in the coming weeks).

Still here? Go HTML, now!
