Additional Information

What our Users Say

Sandvox appeals to people from all walks of life, except one: professional HTML developers (and even a few HTML code slingers will use Sandvox to prototype, but clearly they are “the exception that proves the rule”). Sandvox Sites provides a gallery of websites built with Sandvox from around the world, submitted by the website creators themselves, in their own words. Notice the tag cloud, on the left-hand side, for a quick visual representation of the wide variety of interests.
