SynthaSite Offers Web Site Builders Easy Access to More Than 60,000 Widgets Through Integration With Widgetbox

Tool Allows Users to Add Games, Chat, Video and Social Networking Without Leaving the Site

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Aiming to make the Web site publishing experience both accessible and simple for the everyday Internet user, SynthaSite, the leading do-it-yourself free Web site builder, today announced the integration of the Widgetbox Gallery to SynthaSite's toolbox. With the integration of Widgetbox, the world's first and largest widget community, SynthaSite users can now browse, search and easily add widgets from Widgetbox's wide selection of 60,000+ widgets directly to their sites without needing to login to Widgetbox, leave SynthaSite or see any html code.

"SynthaSite's mission is to make the Internet easily accessible to the everyday user and empower individuals to establish their own online identity, promote their small business or educate and share information with others," said Vinny Lingham, CEO of SynthaSite. "Widgets have become an incredibly popular, fun and useful tool for people to express their individualities and connect with others online in new and creative ways. The new Widgetbox Gallery makes it even easier to incorporate games, chat, video, social networking and much more into a Web site."

SynthaSite's free Web site builder allows anyone with little or no programming skills to create and publish a Web site with ease. SynthaSite's drag and drop technology enables users to easily incorporate a variety of widgets including Flickr streams, YouTube videos, Google Gadgets, Genbook online appointment booking and many more. Its recently enhanced new user interface has streamlined the process for signing up, increased the creation space and simplified key functions such as the saving and publishing process to make the Web site building even easier and more intuitive.

What Everyday Users Are Saying

"This company has made it possible for people like me, who are light on programming skills, to build lovely sites easily and quickly," said Benjamin Gordon from Saratoga Springs, NY, "As SynthaSite adds new features and polishes the product, they are building a real Web 3.0 phenomenon. I think this is going to be a big part of the Internet's future. It is incredibly liberating not to have to wrestle with a programmer to get the design I want."

"I'm so stoked about SynthaSite," said Brandon Baumgarten from South Lake Tahoe, Calif., "I've just created a third website and I'm amazed at how well it's doing. Not only does the site look great, but thanks to SynthaSite's easy to use GenBook module, our new Web site is converting Web traffic into photo session appointments like I've never seen. Why? Now people can book a confirmed appointment, in real time, right online at my Web site. The online reservations system has literally tripled our bookings for this summer. Thanks SynthaSite, you're really helping us put food on the table, during these tough economic times!"
