We have met a couple of people recently who have developed new websites using Wix as an alternative to WordPress, currently more or less the default norm. Joomla, Modex and other platforms are used by some developers but not to the same extent as WordPress at the moment.
If you are considering using Wix for a web site, you might like to read this article which compares the features of Wix versus WordPress.
Our impression is that it is very easy to use (drag and drop) and has its place, but is less powerful and versatile than WordPress. There may also be challenges in terms of Search Engine Optimisation, which we consider to be very important. Both Wix and WordPress are free to use.
