It might be worth you having a look at Adobe Muse, it has InDesign-like commands, it's relatively easy to learn, and it come as part of the CC suite.
Does InDesign lend itself well to creating website mockups? Does it have any plugins or connectors suited for creating wireframes for Web, Mobile and Tablet? Thanks.
That would be like carving a sculpture from granite just to show the baker how to do the figurines on the wedding cake - a total waste of time and resources. As suggested, use Muse to create functional mock-ups, create a slideshow/ quizz in Captivate or do static designs in Photoshop.
If you really are working on a static design and are not coding, InDesign lets you setup a document for web intent where the page dimensions are set as pixels and the color and transparency blend space setup as RGB. So it depends where you are more comfortable and what you are trying to do—if I'm setting type and laying out a grid I prefer to be in InDesign.
If you are using OSX you might look at this AppleScript, that opens a layered InDesign page into a same layered Photoshop image—so you can start in ID and move to PS:
Here's the thread on its usage:
i start from indesign - save jpg en than go to fireworks to make a preview of my design with web engineer - create demo... but i suppose there are faster ways...
That sounds a really bizarre workflow.
This is only to see my indesign files into a browser... I waste too much time layouting in photoshop. indesign is so much faster. I don't realise why adobe focuses on psd mockups...

I think it's the users that choose Photoshop rather than an Adobe recommendation, but it's not like you can build a website with Photoshop either—the original question was about design not coding.
InDesign's web intent lets you define page pixel dimensions and RGB color as the default, and its layout and typographic controls are far superior to any image editing software. I agree unless you need to do a lot of image manipulation ID is much faster.
