The standout feature of Webflow is the coding experience. The intuitive drag-and-drop interface allows you to add elements like text, images, and buttons with a simple click and drag. Adjusting paddings, margins, and other style attributes can be done visually using the interactive tools. This simplicity enables anyone to build fully functional websites quickly without touching code.
Webflow uses a system of containers, rows, and columns to handle responsive design seamlessly. As you adjust page elements, everything else moves and adapts fluidly across screen sizes. Media queries and breakpoints don’t need to be manually set up – the responsiveness happens automatically. This convenience allows designers to focus on the creative aspects rather than technical challenges.
Powerful design flexibility
The visual design possibilities are endless. The robust styling tools allow you to tweak everything from colors, typography, spacing, shadows, and more.

Users start building on top of these templates or design fresh from scratch.
