Google Pages is a free website page maker and hoster. We have given Google Pages a quick test go at Andis Island and Andisleben. The technology is still very simple and will have to be be improved to be competititve. But it is a free form of webhosting which is bound to find some adherents.
Pageflakes, a name which we do not particularly care for, is an AJAX application which has some impressive features. Our main reservation is that the page loading is simply too slow.
