Moonfruit Website Builder Review

Moonfruit Website Builder Review | website builders | Scoop.it
Moonfruit has been around for awhile. Launched during the dot-com bubble back in 2000 as a Flash-based website builder, it quickly became one of the most popular places to create a website.

This is one of the Website builders i use. fair review although i am not sure it is really that deep. I would add that even with the recent changes, the Blog is a bit basic and the documentation is very fragmentary. Customer support has improved enormously. Probably a bit too design orientated for some small businesses.
