Anyone who has ever designed a website knows how important wireframing is. It is a great way to map out the look and feel of a site before diving in. However, there are very few good wireframing resources out there. Often, developers and designers use Photoshop and or some other image editor to create mock-ups. However, we just came across a wireframing tool that has an extremely robust set of features: ProcessON. We had a chance to ask the ProcessON team a few questions about their software:
