Making it easier than ever to make your own simple web page to spread the memes of your dreams, Mozilla has introduced Thimble, touted as being "ridiculously simple" for making websites.

Taking on the likes of WordPress, Thimble is targeted at basically anyone interested in creating and sharing their own web pages and other projects in as little as a few minutes.

The difference is that Thimble isn't really a blog-type page creator, but rather more like the AOL-owned About.Me splash page maker for those internet users with a little HTML and CSS knowledge.

Matt Thompson, communications director and chief storyteller for the Mozilla Foundation, described on the official Mozilla blog that Thimble "removes many of the barriers for novice users trying to learn code, and includes a series of starter projects and templates to help anyone get started quickly".

To get started, Thimble is a simple visual editor that allows users to write and edit HTML within a browser window, and then to preview and publish after that.

Along with Thimble, Mozilla is simultaneous introducing Webmaker.org, which will essentially serve as a gallery for promoting how to use Thimble as well as other Mozilla web-creation tools. It will also host 3D web pages and projects from partners such as Tumblr, the London Zoo and the New York Public Library.
