Adobe unveils free public beta of Muse website design software

Plan, design and publish websites in a style 'similar to InDesign'

Adobe has unveiled a free public beta of new software that allows users to create unique HTML websites without writing code or working within restrictive templates.

The software, which has been given the codename Muse, uses the latest web standards including HTML5 and CSS3, if supported by browsers, to offer the ability to plan, design and publish websites that combine images, graphics, and text in a way Adobe describes as "similar to InDesign".

Furthermore, users can add navigation, widgets and other interactional elements to their websites for web user interaction and even embeds HTML code snippets from sources including Google Maps, YouTube and Facebook.

"The ability to build websites as easily as laying out a page in InDesign is one of the most popular requests from our design customers," says Lea Hickman, vice president of Design and Web product management at Adobe. "Those who have tested Muse are thrilled that something this intuitive yet powerful is now available."

Adobe Muse is free to download from the firm's dedicated web page.
