A wireframe is a skeletal outline of the components of your web site so that you can better see the relationships between them. A web site wireframe is a great way to clarify your vision for an entire web development team.
A wireframe is a great way to ensure clarity and consistency during web site development: it's like creating an outline before detailing the specifics. A wireframe uses basic boxes and lines to define the spaces on the page, to clarify branding and navigation, and to indicate where text will reside — before the actual images and content have been created.
Everyone on your development team can benefit from the wireframe:
Creating a website wireframe is easy with Gliffy's free wireframe tool. Just drag and drop boxes, buttons, and lines from the web wireframe tool shape library anywhere onto the page. Then add text to your website wireframe to create a clear web site mockup.
Unlike Visio and other expensive, installed software, Gliffy lets you share and collaborate with anyone, on any platform, in any location. And unlike other software that's designed exclusively for wireframes, Gliffy lets you improve the resolution of your wireframe over time, by adding colorful shapes and uploading final images.
