Okay, it’s actually The Pencil. The Pencil Project powered by Mozilla.

What is that?

The Pencil Project’s unique mission is to build a free and opensource tool for making diagrams and GUI prototyping that everyone can use.

Top features:

•Built-in stencils for diagraming and prototyping
•Multi-page document with background page
•Inter-page linkings!
•On-screen text editing with rich-text supports
•Exporting to HTML, PNG, Openoffice.org document, Word document and PDF.
•Undo/redo supports
•Installing user-defined stencils and templates
•Standard drawing operations: aligning, z-ordering, scaling, rotating…
•Cross-platforms
•Adding external objects
•Personal Collection
•Clipart Browser
•Object snapping
•Sketchy Stencil
•And much more…

Licensing and Versions:

Pencil will always be free as it is released under the GPL version 2 and is available for virtually all platforms that Firefox 3 can run. The first version of Pencil is tested against GNU/Linux 2.6 (Fedora, Ubuntu and Arch) with GTK+, Windows XP and Windows Vista/7.

And here’s what I created as a trial in a few minutes.
