Google Web Editor – Rumour

Category: UI, Web20

Google is *rumoured* to be working on an Ajax web page editor:

Google has a project codenamed trogdor, an ajax webpage editor for creating web pages. = geocities except with a javascript page creator.

Google or not, an Ajax-style GeoCities makes sense. We’ve seen portal-like editors like Dobrado that make light work of page creation by novices. Even Protopage makes a good editor for someone who wants to whip up a quick homepage. We also have many rich text editors being used in production, such as JotSpot‘s use of the Dojo Rich Text Editor.

Tools like these not only make basic HTML generation a breeze, but could also help create some Ajax features too. Imagine a Portlet editor using drag-and-drop to set up the link flow. Another example is a Live Search widget, allowing all pages managed by the user to be searched.

It’s called Page Creator and it definitely exists. It would never work for a real business’ website but it is very Geocities.

My guess is that these websites will only be accessible through Google AdWords.
