Boomla vs other FREE website builders

We are only considering FREE, hosted solutions here.
Content Management Systems that you have to host yourself are thus not included. Wordpress.com is NOT Wordpress the CMS. Squarespace and Godaddy were not included below as they do not have free plans.

By default, templates have a link to Boomla in their footer. This is OPTIONAL, you can remove it. It helps spread the word if you keep it, or even better, if you replace it with your own recommendation. Let's build a software we can all love.
