IM Creator’s XPS looks to be an interesting visual website design tool akin to Squarespace‘s visual editor.

XPS seems to be more affordable for developers and has a great free option for students and non-corporate work. Personally I’m getting sick and tired of all this website building with code and long for the future when the tools will be more akin to InDesign than the movie Hackers.
