Weebly Website Builder

Screen shot by J Kyrnin

The Weebly Website builder chrome app is an application that connects to the Weebly.com free web hosting service. You can use the Chrome app to connect to your website or use their online tools in other browsers. I got frustrated fairly quickly when I tried to upload an image and it wouldn't let me because the image was “too large”. It told me to edit it and try uploading again. But for this type of application, I would want the editing to be right in the tool, not force me to go somewhere else to edit the image and then re-upload. Plus, it didn't tell me how small it needed to be. And was the size issue due to dimensions or space? I don't know. If you want to play around with a website, Weebly is a good starting position. It even offers Google AdSense integration (they take 50% of the revenue).
