Now before I start this post, I know what Google's focus was with this program. However, we need to be innovators, and that means using tools in a way they weren't exactly meant to be used.
Yesterday, I saw something about Google Web Designer, so I had to check it out. Today, I went ahead and downloaded it. It was fairly simple to use, and allows creators to make graphics and webpages all in one. Although it certainly isn't a robust editor like Dreamweaver or Fireworks, I believe it can be a suitable fill in for both.
If you like to design websites, graphics, or just like to play around with something new, I highly recommend this. It can be a fun little toy!
