I'm looking for a free or commercial software for Os X to create mockups for websites. Any suggestion?

Balsamiq Mockups is a good one, fairly cheap and very good -

The only downside of this app is, it is based on Adobe AIR. Sometime it gets your nerve (Like blocking the shutdown sequence). Otherwise, quite a neat mockup tool! – Prakash Jul 22 '11 at 13:31

You can do all sorts of fun things with Omnigraffle as well. And if you're looking for a way to make easy wireframes of current websites, you might do worse than checking out Wirify. Good luck!

WireframeSketcher is a cross-platform rapid wireframing tool.

For mocking up websites I swear by Adobe Fireworks, it might be overkill, but the abilty to have a library of buttons etc and set a master page that carries elements to all the other pages, so headers/footers etc only need to be changed once.

Check out frame box—a "lightweight online tool for creating mockups."

Depending on the definition of "mockup", you might be interested in DENIM.

DENIM is a system that helps web site designers in the early stages of design. DENIM supports sketching input, allows design at different refinement levels, and unifies the levels through zooming.

Just In Mind is probably one of the most extensive commercial website mockup apps, and Mockingbird is a fairly lightweight online mockup tool.

If you use Firefox 3, take a look at Pencil, a free wireframe sketching add-on. A version for Firefox 4 is available here, but I haven't tried it.

Please summarize, the URL might die. – Rob Feb 25 '14 at 11:21
