I must admit I am impressed with Googlepages. Yes entirely impressed. It’s the easiest way to create a webpage and all you need is a Gmail id. My readers will know that I have a Gmail id , infact I have 3. Google has simplified the entire process of webpage creation. Armed with a powerful WYSIWYG editor and the choice of over hundreds of themes , Googlepages is all set to take on the likes of Tripod and Geocities and of course win. Come to think of it , I haven’t seen the Google people on the losing side at all ! Well of course we have some promising contenders under development. Kosmix for one. Well the technology is not yet perfected and sometimes the entire software crashes. My first attempt was a disaster the entire webpage crashed and I had to start from scratch. But if you think that you have outgrown WSIWYG editing and can code your own web-page then Google allows that too.
Just take your curosr to the portion that you want to edit and click on " Edit HTML" at the end of the sidebar. It has someother nifty features as well. You can choose your font size, color and insert pictures. You can even upload any file you want. For my part , I am going to put up some greasemonkey scripts.But like Tripod , Googlepages falls short of one thing and that is WWW registration. Your site pops up if you type http://sitename.googlepages.com but if you type http://www.sitename.googlepages.com , then a 404 error pops up. It is the same with Tripod , but the advantages of using Googlepages are apparent. First you have no annoying ads on your site and the tools are simpler. Go ahead create your own site , visit Googlepages.
Um yeah that’s what my site looks like. Click here to visit my site.
