Webs has been around as an easy-to-use website builder since 2001, longer than competitors like Weebly and Wix. Webs targets mainly small business owners as most of their design templates and tools/apps are business-oriented.
Summary of Pros
User-friendly website builder
Its simple interface makes Webs very intuitive for any user to build a website. It is very easy to add and edit modules using the drag-and-drop builder.
Webs comes with a membership function that is integrate into your website. You can add and manage members, send out group emails and set members-only pages.
Webs has an App Store that lets you add more functions and tools into your website. Tools include blog, photo gallery, calendar, forms and forum. The selection of tools is not extensive like many other competitors, but there is the option to add third-party widgets using the custom HTML option.

Webs also has two great business-oriented support sites: Marketing Mojo blog and Small Business Resource Center, offering useful information and tips on online marketing, branding advice, website tips and more.
Summary of Cons
Dated, uninspiring template designs
While Webs has an extensive library of mobile-optimized design templates to choose from, some users may find Webs' templates dated and uninspiring and Webs doesn't give you the flexibility to alter the design through the HTML or CSS codes of the template. Template customization is limited to changing the color scheme, background color/image and font styles. Also, their templates are not responsive.
Editor slow response/loading time
The response/loading time for the site builder is slow. There have been user feedbacks about glitches with the site publishing function. However, once published, the website's loading time is back to normal speed.
Bad billing practices
Webs claim a 30-day hassle-free policy on their paid services, but a quick search on the web shows quite a lengthy lists of account billing and cancellation problems experienced by their users. Of course, there are some positive reviews in the mix, too.
