Google Sites for Chrome is a free app from Google, available for multiple platforms most recently including Chrome. It allows users to build easy-to-edit websites, page by page, from simple templates. Sites provides very basic white or coloured templates as well as more floral and fancy templates, and all templates are reasonably customizable once selected.

Easy To Use, Hard To Customize

Google Sites for Chrome is a fantastic way to create informal websites such as hobby websites, and it's suitable for small businesses that would rather focus their resources in areas other than developing a more personalized website. Personalization, incidentally, is one of Google Sites's notable weaknesses: although you can edit HTML and tweak the templates provided by the app, it's difficult to do even simpler things such as remove the sidebars most templates feature by default. Google Sites are structured in a specific way, and deviating from that to add more complex pages to your website can be nearly impossible, in some cases.

No Tools Needed For This Job

Anyone looking to make a perfectly-customized website layered in Flash and glamour will not find this app to be to their standards. Anyone looking to write a bunch of things down on a standard webpage will find Google Sites for Chrome to be a great option. For casual users, it's more private than a wiki, and for very small businesses, it saves lots of time.
