Freewebs, the service that lets you create your own website, has updated its site to offer a new look with more web 2.0 features.
Similar to the likes of Google Page Creator, you can further customize your Freewebs site. There are more templates to choose from, and you can now add multiple content modules and move their position. There are text boxes with more formatting options, as well as more widget, album and video module options. Freewebs has integrated options from several web services like YouTube, Brightcove, Digg, Photobucket and more. There are also importing options for you to insert your blog (sans comments).
While there are several new changes with the Freewebs service, you won't notice much of a change in the aesthetics of your site. The modifications mentioned are rather subtle and blend well with the existing tone of Freewebs' services. It's also important to note that Freewebs already had some of these services in some fashion, such as a widget table, but the new design makes these tools make these features easier to add.
In recent Freewebs news, the company has released its API to the developers community.
