Build and modify website designs for various web-based projects. Drag images onto your page, adjust sizes with the drag handles, even adjust CSS properties such as margins and padding. Work with a collection of templates for quick editing and integrate code.

Flux is a screen saver for Mac OS X 10.4 or later It displays strange attractors representations on your screen. This is the Mac OS X port of the Windows OpenGL screen saver made by Terence M. Welsh.Flux is a useful and flexible Web design application. Although, template-based design is highly appreciated by beginner users, Web design professionals usually prefer to use more creatively prone design environments. Flux provides a comprehensive support for HTML and CSS languages. Obviously, it also allows you to load and use templates, either from the Flux library or import them from existing sites.

Flux also offers support for Image Maps, CSS Gradients, custom fonts, and so on. This software also allows the users to design web pages using various page extensions like .php extensions for PHP, .jsp extensions for Java Application Servers (Apache, Sun Java, JBoss, etc.) and rhtml or .html.erb extensions (Ruby on Rails TM) . This display of flexibility is what web designers seem to be looking for nowadays.

Flux is an efficient Web design tool as it was designed to be very easy-to-use since it will allow web designers to drag, stretch, and move objects as they want. Furthermore, Flux will even generate all the code for you so that you don't have to waste time on binding webpage elements and focus only on the page look and content. Therefore, I think that beginner web designers will really appreciate the Flux program and put it to good use.
