NetObjects Fusion

A popular Windows-based Web authoring system from Website Pros, Inc., Jacksonville, FL (www.websitepros.com). It provides a visual environment for designing Web pages and can import an existing site. It was one of the first Web authoring programs to apply desktop publishing tools to an entire site. It is also noted for its ability to generate a complex site without writing any lines of code. NetObjects Fusion was originally developed by NetObjects, Inc., Redwood City, CA, which was acquired by Website Pros in 2001, a provider of site design and services focused on the small business.


Sample Site
NetObjects Fusion will automatically create a hierarchy for a typical public website and let you edit it however you wish. It lets you place text and images on a page and automatically create the complex navigation bars that let you link to all areas of the site. (Screen shot courtesy of Website Pros, Inc.)
