Google offers Free Websites

http://pages.google.com/

Found this last night....Google is now offering to it's gmail members--the chance to use and build, host their own websites free on Google.

Easy to use templates---uploading of pictures, files, movies etc and linking to it etc.

You get a 100 megabyte storage[dunno about the transfer limits].

You can't tweak a lot of your HTML code, which is a blessing for a lot of people.

Give it a try!

And if anyone needs a free gmail account let me know![Almost everyone that wants one has one nowadays...]

Google says it works with Firefox. You could use Firefox for Mac OS X.

Yep..Firefox on the Mac works with Google Pages.
[Though my knee jerk reaction is that anything that doesn't work with Safari sucks! The Gap website for one...]

Googlepages is still in Beta of course, but works okay for me. It's good for building very simple sites, right in your web browser and spares us from a lot of HTML code.

Though I wouldn't mind the ability to FTP in the future...

And free is absolutely good.
