Unlike code-based HTML editors, NetObjects Fusion offers a graphical interface akin to the drag-and-drop approach of such DTP programs as PageMaker and QuarkXPress. For that reason, it has enjoyed wide use by serious and not-so-serious Web site designers seeking a layout-based approach for building Web sites. With NetObjects Fusion, designers need not mess with direct HTML coding; instead, everything a Web builder needs is available through intuitive graphic toolbars and menu selections. NetObjects Fusion X is a visual program, which fits the easy-to-learn approach taken by NetObjects Fusion X for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide.
