  1. Wow! This site is really useful for me since I am building a website right now. I have tried other form creators but this one is the easiest. Why didn’t I find this before?

  2. Though I do know quite a bit of HTML, this website would be great for beginners, or people who just need a quick form for something. Forms are easy to design in HTML, but not everyone has the time to create them, especially if they need to get a form online quickly. I’m surprised that this website has as many features as it does, and I don’t doubt that I will use this in the future.


  3. It’s a nice idea, but I’d rather just write my own form with HTML. There are quite a few issues. I would personally like it better if they generated the code for you rather than an iframe. Iframes can cause issues in certain browsers. Also, if I put the iframe on my site, unless I know HTML and edit the form source, The form will have a white background, but what if my site has a tan background?

    I’d rather use PHP to make a form, or just have it send the data to a specific email address.

    Once again, good idea, but there are issues that need to be addressed.


  4. I really don’t see the point of using HTML code to create a form box. With Google docs now available, this is a much more organized alternative to the regular form. I really enjoy it’s easy-to-edit style and seamless user interface.

    I’m really starting to think that with Google Docs around that the Online Form will slowly ease it’s way into our history books. The world is becoming Googleized.
