Adobe automates website design for arty Luddites

Like crayons, hate keyboards?

Adobe is looking for beta testers for its web design software, which it claims removes the need for coding.

Aimed at graphic designers with limited technical skills, Muse claims to make it possible to design complex websites using point-and-click and drag-and-drop rather than hand coding.

Adobe is aiming for a full release of the software in early 2012, at which point you will need to pay a subscription. Prices are expected to start at $15 a month.

The software works on Lion – with some bugs, Adobe said – but is not certified to run on Linux. Adobe said it would welcome bug reports from anyone trying the program on open-source operating systems, but it could not commit to fixing them.

Adobe said the name of the program may also change; Muse is just its code name.

Beta testers will also need to have Adobe's AIR installed. Adobe is also offering web hosting.
