March 18, 2010 (MMD Newswire) -- Wix is a growing startup company based in NY that is responsible for a unique and powerful free website builder that allows for the creation of Flash website designs that are also search engine friendly. Recently the website introduced an arsenal of new content to its store and a new animated gallery maker.

Last week the Wix sent a mass mail to its users informing them of the most recent additions and developments to the site. These included, amongst other things new content items such as page area styles, new free Flash templates and designs and a brand new selection of images. This week, the company is topping that by introducing a new animated gallery option which opens up a new set of design and style options for the users. The animations include a FWRD animation, an H-list animation, a photo stack animation and more. The photo stack animation for example appears like a person is browsing through a bunch of Polaroid's, making it a fun and catchy design and display for pictures.

Wix is home to over 3 million websites that have already been published since the company opened its beta version to the public in 2008. There is a large variety of different Flash website designs created using the website builder. Some of the more popular niches include small businesses and non-profit organizations who particularly benefit from the low cost of creating a website with Wix and its convenience as an effective promotional tool, as it is search engine friendly and can be marketed online. Other strong niches include photographers, artists and musicians who all enjoy the visual potency of creating Flash designs.

Wix users have a Wish List forum where they can share their ideas for new developments at Wix and in its website builder. This is the company's method of keeping track of its users needs and trends. Once a user has posted a wish, other users can rate and vote for that wish. The more people supporting a specific wish the higher up the list that wish will go, leading to a dynamic and interactive relationship between Wix and its users.

Wix was established in 2005 and has its headquarters in NY and offices in Tel-Aviv. It is backed by Mangrove Capital Partners and Bessemer Venture Partners. More information on can be found at www.wix.com.
