Wix’s HTML5 site builder has brought more than 1M new open standard sites into the wild
Since launching its HTML5 site builder back in March, Wix has just announced that an impressive one million HTML5 sites have been built using the platform over the past few months.
Wixs DIY site creator has been well-known for quite some time, but traditionally as a tool that uses Adobes less-than-exciting Flash technology. With Flash in decline, the company decided to embrace open standards, and a HTML5 site builder was launched alongside the original Flash product and has undoubtedly won over many of Wixs original users.
So what does it mean? For starters, there are now more than one million additional HTML5 sites out there in the wild. Additionally, we cant help but think that it has likely also cannibalized users away from the Flash creator.
