    From what I have seen in the video I don't know if I would be able use this to publish the websites I work on (due to complexity), but as a quick prototyping tool this might be an easy way to hand off rough user flows and lofi prototypes to my clients. I'm pumped to have a play with it! Thanks Anima

      Yes, this is exactly what I thought. I'm also wondering how they deal with site optimization, standards, etc. ANyways, this is great news for us all.

        I've had a read through the documentation and there is no mention of support but quick look at the code on the demo sites reveals:

        • Everything in divs with varying positioning properties
        • in responsive examples it loads each breakpoint at once (as seperate divs) and displays/toggles each div based on device width
        • css is unique for each element
        • its used google fonts for some fonts and for custom fonts its used font-face
        • media via AWS
        • can't tell if forms support validation from the examples

        Not a comprehensive review and I've yet to try it msyelf but from what I can see these sites should work on most current os/browser combos.

        Another thing of interest is that Launchpad supports versioning in both preview and publish modes and allows you to rollback between versions. Another plus for prototyping.
