Webs was acquired by Vistaprint, another website builder company, in 2011. Since then Vistaprint has maintained both products.
Unfortunately Webs has become increasingly out-of-date: there are no responsive themes, and no feature or UI changes are on the horizon. The Webs Announcements blog hasn't had an update since 2015.

None of this has not been communicated to Webs customers— which sucks. I hope they communicate it soon. Acquiring products and abandoning them is common in website builders. When GoDaddy acquired Virb, Virb's customers stopped getting new features and the product stood frozen in time. I hope this does not happen to Webs customers but truthfully, it looks like that has happened.
