Yet to the surprise of many, static websites are coming back. Having been ridiculed for years, they now fulfill a vital need for bloggers and others who simply want to disseminate information. Static site generators — the new breed of tools for creating static sites — simplify the once-tedious process of building and deploying these basic sites. Get the lowdown on these tools and see what's behind the return of the static site with Static Site Generators, a new report by Brian Rinaldi. Get the free copy.
