When it comes to website editing, there are usually two kind of people: the ones that know what’s it all about (they usually have some fine coding skills as well) and the ones who have no clue in the matter, but they don’t trust anybody else with their work and will try to do everything themselves.
Nowadays, more and more people come to the realization that everything is shifting online and feel some internal urge to create a website as their own digital footprint. Luckily enough, Wix comes to the rescue for both kinds with its new release – Editor X. We reviewed it for you and came back with the main reasons why you should entrust Editor X to be your new website builder and companion.
