Breezi is a design tool for websites. Users can begin working on an interactive website by editing text and other elements right where they will appear on the page. Breezi offers a high level of customization with what the application calls “Stylistic Precision.” Users can adjust every pixel on the site for maximum creativity. Mousing over elements reveals a border and editing tools so the user can easily jump from one area on the website to the next. Video and images can also be added to pages. Breezi provides a large collection of layout options. Layouts are essentially the skeleton of the web page that lets the user work with a nearly blank canvas.
Breezi began as a guided design tool. The project took several months as the founders tried to create a website design tool that handled much of the design work without reducing the user’s ability to be creative and original. The application has enjoyed lots of positive attention from numerous well-known online sources, including The Next Web, .Net, PC World, Web Designer Depot, How and Venture Beat.
Many applications give users tools to build a website. Breezi is one of the better options because of its many customization controls. Users are free to build to their heart’s content. There are almost no limitations. The application even provides a wide range of layout options that users can further personalize with unique colors, content and interactive elements. The service dramatically simplifies the website design process without forcing the user to utilize a canned theme.
Breezi has a modern appearance that makes it as user friendly as it is. This is really where the application shines. The user actually views the web page as they design it. There are no surprises and users can access editing options and layouts through the interface. Breezi keeps things simple so the user can focus all their energy on the site design. The application feels smooth and natural, nurturing creativity as well as convenience.
A new user can register by clicking the blue “Sign Up!” button in the upper, right hand corner of the page. The user chooses a layout to get started. After choosing a layout, the user is asked to provide a site name, the user’s name, email address and a password. The user is automatically logged in after successfully submitting the form.
All users are automatically signed up for a free Breezi account. Users who want to upgrade to pay $12 per month for premium access. The premium account includes the ability to use a custom domain name. This is the only difference between a free and paid membership. All users receive access to the same features and website customization options. Free users are given a Breezi.com subdomain.
Breezi is an excellent website design tool for anyone who wants to control all or most of the building process. Users who want a pre-made template would be better off going elsewhere because Breezi provides many customization options. That means the visual appeal relies heavily on the user. Users should also note that the starting point cannot be changed while building or after the site is complete. The user must email Breezi support to have them delete the existing site to start over with a new starting point. This is somewhat cumbersome if the user doesn’t choose a starting point carefully.
