Clue Alert: You Are *NOT* a Designer

The problem with making it easier to "design" web sites is that it makes it so more people think they're designers.

If the results of your efforts to hand-crank HTML and CSS were trifling before this "nifty" tool, chances are rather high that your results after the new tool will be trifling. Just because it now looks like every other site using the same development tools doesn't mean that any of those sites look particularly good. For starters, for a site to stand out, it has to be both good and unique. You can't stand out by looking like everyone else.

In the end, junk is junk. All that the various design tools do is make it easier for junk to be thrown out there.
