SiteBuilder Lite Web Site Creation Tool Now Available for Mac OS X Using AJAX Technology

Offers Faster Editing and Online Publishing Capabilities for the 'On the Go' Small Business Owner

Homestead Technologies, provider of affordable and easy-to-use web site creation software for small businesses, has announced a new release of SiteBuilder Lite, which is compatible with Mac OS X. SiteBuilder Lite enables small business owners to edit the frequently-changing elements on their web sites and then publish them to the Internet within seconds.

SiteBuilder Lite benefits anyone who requires small, frequent or timely updates to their web sites; a restaurant owner changing a daily menu or a realtor altering the status of a home for sale. SiteBuilder Lite, in conjunction with Homestead QuickSites, can be used to build a professional small business website from scratch; or it can be used with Homestead's advanced editor, SiteBuilder.

SiteBuilder Lite is a modified version of Homestead's award-winning, SiteBuilder product that offers "do-it-yourself" or full-service web site creation, hosting, marketing and ecommerce capabilities to small businesses and online stores that wish to establish and maintain a unique Internet presence.

SiteBuilder Lite for Mac OS X was specifically designed to offer small businesses a greater level of convenience and flexibility. Homestead subscribers can now exercise choice in using SiteBuilder Lite on their preferred operating system, and also make basic changes to their web site's content and images -- without requiring the download of the original SiteBuilder software. In addition, Homestead has enhanced the web-based user experience by leveraging the latest in AJAX technology. AJAX offers SiteBuilder Lite users a level of richness and responsiveness typically only experienced when using desktop applications.

Says Thai Bui, Homestead's Chief Technology Officer, "Homestead has created SiteBuilder Lite using AJAX, because it offers users a smoother, more immediate editing experience that will feel like they're doing so on an application, rather than a web browser."

"We're pleased to announce that SiteBuilder Lite now supports the Macintosh. SiteBuilder Lite has been a fantastic hit with our customers since its launch last year, and it we're excited to extend this elegant tool to the Macintosh platform," said, Justin Kitch, Homestead CEO & co-founder. "The extension of our service to include the Mac operating system is the natural progression of our service offering and ongoing commitment to enhance our subscriber's overall user experience."
