Macaw Released for Code-free Site Creation

Unfortunately, Intel Mac only!
That leaves my PowerMac G4, iMac G5 and two 17" PowerBook G4s out in the cold. Oh well, there's the MacPro at work though.

Can you even get a current browsers to work on those old macs?
I believe I had looked after a white G5(?) iMac not so long ago and lack of software support was a problem all across the board, neither a current Firefox nor chrome was available - Safari being out of the question. So Macaw would be my least concern when using those machines for web development.

That said, I would not say that Macaw is either fully code free or a tool for "site creation". It is a great tool for prototyping layouts, but don't assume you will create (not to speak of maintaining) a complete website with structure and content in that software. It is not really the best fit for that.

TenFourFox is designed as a replacement for Firefox for use with Powermacs running Tiger (10.4); (it also works with Leopard 10.5 on same).
