1-0 out of 5 stars If I could give 0 stars I would.
No one running Mac OS X should buy this product until the bugs are worked out.

Some of the more annoying Fireworks MX bugs:

Eyedropper - when selecting a color, selects the inverse of that color, so you have to select the color, then select it again to get the correct color.

Crop - If you set up your canvas to delete objects when cropping and then crop your document, it won't delete objects.

Text - You cannot copy and/or paste text into or out of the program

Those are all I can think of right now... but these are not all the bugs, I run into more and more every day.

DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM. It's not worth it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very buggy software, but does the job
Another half-baked update. Macromedia really needs to go back to the drawing board and put out some maintenance updates. On the good side, we have OS X versions of these web design mainstay apps (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash); on the bad side, they are so buggy that one wonders if OS 9 was really that bad at all. Overall, DW on my G4/733 feels slower than 4.01 did on a G3/333.

For example, the behavior of dragging the panels on the right side is very inconsistant. E.g., when attempting to resize the CSS panel to be longer to show more styles in my file, the cursor often does not turn into the double-headed arrow to indicate dragability; or the cursor disappears completely; dragging sometimes works, but more often doesn't. Or, when in code view, dragging across text to select results in a nasty redraw problem, with the code flashing on and off in rapid succession until you've stopped dragging. It's like the document is having an epilectic seizure.

And why haven't they put in a simple window split function? BBEdit has had this for years. They boast about how bit-chin' their HTML code view is, but jeeze, it leaves a lot to be desired (and no, I don't think switching to BBEdit should be a solution to that; I think Macromedia should do more than a half-baked job on the code editor, and then most of us wouln't need to bother with BBEdit). Additionally, some of the other bugs were extant in version 4.01. Some things in 4.01 were slow as heck (templates). What I'm seeing so far in MX doesn't bode well.  

5-0 out of 5 stars Too Good To Be Called an "Upgrade..."
MacroMedia has exceeded expectations with Studio MX! The newest items -- DreamWeaver MX, FireWorks MX, and Flash MX -- have been renovated to feature a much more consistent, intuitive user experience, slick graphical interface (at least under Mac OSX), and expanded capabilities and features.

So much has been added in features and experience that to call this a mere 'upgrade' is short changing the work done here. DW features all of the features from UltraDev, plus support for the free PHP, demonstrating their renewed confidence in the power of ColdFusion (dev version included w/Windows version of Studio MX), not to mention added support for ASP.NET. Those who loved Allaire's HomeSite will appreciate its integreation into the DW interface itself.

FireWorks is a beautiful application that makes PhotoShop pros feel more at home without feeling like they're using a 2nd rate knock off (like older versions of FW). Creating interacive images is much easier than ever -- some of this stuff you can just 'figure out', perhaps with a bit of guidance from the extensive online help system.

Flash: Wow! It has no competition now, and its intergration with FH10 is fabulous. These two pieces alone make for the most powerful vector-based dev environment on the planet. Crucial, considering the exodus from Raster/bit map images on the web.

Bravo MacroMedia! This stuff is so good, I have no idea what you'll do next! (But, please, may I suggest ColdFusion MX for Mac OSX?) ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Here's a little no-nonsense advice for those of you who are consideringDreamweaver 4 as your future Webeditor: don't skimp; buy this bundle. The seamless integration of Dreamweaver 4with the nicely upgraded graphics application Fireworks 4 justifies theinvestment in this complete suite.

Macromedia's Dreamweaver 4 packs layer upon layer of powerful features, for justabout any Web developer's needs and preferences. Perfect for individuals andprofessional Web-development teams alike, this latest version offers a fresh setof upgrades and improvements. Programmers who build sites by using only a basictext editor are rewarded with features for source-code inspection. Code View'stext-editing environment offers such customizable features as live syntaxcoloring, tag balancing, and auto indenting. Noncoding types can click and dragsites together by using one of the finer visual editors available. Within thoselayers of features, there are resources for creating forms, Flash files, frames,cascading style sheets, Java and ActiveX files, and more. In Split View, theCode and Design views display simultaneously--providing the best of both worldsfor ambidextrous types.

The quickest and easiest way to design graphics in the Dreamweaver world is viaFireworks 4. Fireworks' strengths lie in its focus on the creation andoptimization of bitmapped and vector Web graphics. The files are integrated intoMacromedia Flash and Dreamweaver easily, and importing/exporting Adobe Photoshopand Illustrator files is a breeze; especially with the program's improved layermask handling, and a new Color Fill Live effect. Version 4 rolls out a newinterface that Flash, Dreamweaver, and FreeHand users will recognize. Thisstandardized format also offers tabbed menus for easy customization, and helpskeep the screen tidy. New tools for adding interactive elements--rollovers,navigation bars, and pop-up menus--are a welcome sight. And a Live Animationfeature creates frame-based GIF animations, using symbols, instances, andtweening features that are familiar to Flash users. With built-in HTML andJavaScript capabilities, version 4 delivers the goods to the Web graphics designcommunity.

Convinced? If not, you can always buy Dreamweaver 4 at full retail, and thenfollow-up with a Fireworks 4 purchase, weeks or months later. Just don't blameus for the lingering red mark from your forehead slap. --Eric Twelker--Thisreview refers to the Windows versionof Dreamweaver 4/Fireworks 4. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply THE best web dev combination
DreamWeaver Rocks. Fireworks Rocks. Together they make for a spectacular web design/development combination.

Dreamweaver is packed with features for the beginner through advanced web developer; it's easy and intuitive to use. It may take you a while to learn all the capabilities, but with each successive feature you discover and master, the development process becomes easier and faster.

Fireworks is the best in class web graphics software. It integrates very well with DreamWeaver. Creating animated GIFs is a snap, as is image optimization (file compression), image map creation, and exploring full tables (HTML and all!) for use in DreamWeaver.

You simply cannot go wrong with this package. Photoshop still has its place, but if you focus exclusively on the web and don't need to do exquisite image editing this bundle is all you need.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome
I've been doing web development since 1996 and, to be honest, I fought tooth and nail against giving up Windows Notepad as my web development tool of choice. Microsoft FrontPage really ruined web development software for me and I pretty much vowed to avoid such applications in the future. Fortunately, my boss insisted that I use Dreamweaver and even sent me off to classes to learn the nuts and bolts. And now I'm hooked.

Dreamweaver is simply awesome and I can't imagine ever going back. Whether your a novice or professional, you'll come to love Dreamweaver's simple interface and ability to tackle otherwise tedious tasks -- such as Cascading Style Sheets, tables, layers -- with ease. Adding Flash, Shockwave or Java is as simple as it can possibly be. I took classes on Dreamweaver, but only because my boss insisted. The software is pretty easy to learn, though those with web development experience will have a fuller understanding (and respect) for the capabilities of the product.

The single most powerful part of Dreamweaver is the use of templates, which allow you to use the same look and feel across multiple pages and have all those pages updated when you make changes to the template. This alone will save you hours!

Another great thing about Dreamweaver is that creates clean HTML. This is something that any developer who has ever had to edit the HTML directly will respect -- especially if you've ever tried to make sense of FrontPage HTML nonsense.

Finally, the FTP application in Dreamweaver is outstanding. It keeps track of every page, graphic, link, etc. in your site and any change to any of them is cascaded through the entire site -- automatically updating links where necessary. With a simple click of a button your site is uploaded to your webserver.

There are so many features I haven't covered, but with the little I have this product is worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stupidly Discontinued!
Get Macromedia Dreamweaver 4. They have turned this once great web design package into a hybrid cross of something that looks like Netscape/Flash and called it Dreamweaver MX 2004.

I used Dreamweaver MX 2004 for a month, uninstalled it and went back to Dreamweaver 4. It really is that terrible and the work space is terribly cluttered making it very hard to work within.

Bottom Line -- Get Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 instead if you can find it. Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 is a very good web design package that knocks Dreamweaver MX 2004 for ten. You will simply hate Dreamweaver MX 2004 when you install it on your system. I nearly barfed after a month of using that *new* completely hostile and non-user friendly piece of unstable and slow excuse for a web design software program.

Get this instead ... if you can find it...

5-0 out of 5 stars Review for Dreamweaver 5
-This review is for Dreamweaver 5- I absolutely love this software. I had Adobe Go Live but I never seemed to take to it like I did with Dreamweaver. Once it was installed within a day, I had made several webpages. As I continued to use it I learned more and more intuitively without needing much guidance from the manual. As a user you can create your webpages visually or in code mode, this makes it a great option for anyone no matter what your skill - it can be adjusted to suit your needs. You can learn and develop your webpage skills as much or as little as you like. You do not need to be intimidated by it's high price. You can learn it and the cost is well worth the output. ...
I don't have to look for anything else, I have hit paydirt with this program! If you are using Front Page or any other visual interface for ease, you know that you are trapped into a forced format, get this program and you will understand the freedom of control without fear!

Amazon.com Review

Building a contemporary Web site isn't easy, and keeping one current can be a logistical nightmare. Macromedia's Dreamweaver offers new tools for managing sites, as well as other new features for streamlining the Web-site production process.

On the surface, Dreamweaver is an easy-to-use Web-page editor and site design tool, supporting all basic page elements. However, it has enough depth to build sophisticated sites with features such as forms, Flash files, frames, cascading style sheets, and ActiveX and Java controls, just to name a few. It offers WYSIWYG editing as well as access to HTML source code.

In version 3.0, editing HTML files has been improved with added support for styles, and an HTML source code inspector, which can be docked (like a Window palette). HTML code can be block-edited in this window as well, by selecting entire lines and dragging them to a new destination.

URLs in imported Flash movie files can now be edited in Dreamweaver 3.0, making it easier for a site administrator to change links in Flash files. Synchronizing local and remote site files works in both directions, ensuring that the latest version of a file is saved on both local hard drives and remote servers.

A history palette has been added as well, and all file editing is recorded and listed. Actions can be undone (like multiple undo) and saved as an action for reuse on other files.

There are more changes and additions that let Dreamweaver work more closely with other Macromedia tools (Flash and Fireworks) and additional HTML-generation tools. We also noticed an improved handling of imported elements. Group-project manageability has been improved via the check-in/check-out file system, and most of Dreamweaver's menus and shortcuts are customizable, making for a better user experience. --Mike Caputo ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great WYSIWYG web builder program.
I started my web page (...) using an online page builder. A good way to start, but not very creative. I then moved up to Adobe PageMill which gave me even more opportunity to design the look I wanted. When I decided on Dreamweaver, it was out of a desire to make my page look even better, and work across platforms. It does the trick.

The program is extremely user friendly and easy to learn. Always a good thing when you're dealing with a limited schedule. The FTP interface even makes sure your support files go with the html page. All in all, a must have for the web head in you.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bugs, bugs, wonderful bugs...
Dreamweaver is the most horrid, repulsive web design software ever written for the Mac. I am warning you, fellow Mac users. Macromedia must have bought a can of ladybugs and dropped them in the beta tester's brains-I can't believe that they missed some very important bugs-the site map doesn't work, and there is no cross-platform compatibility. Do not buy this. Please look into GoLive by Adobe.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
I went to a camp and usd it. the minute i started i fell in love it is so easy to use. Iam only 11 and it ia breeze.I made a website and it looks awsome.Thank you macromedia, you did it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sheer Brilliance
Macromedia's Dreamweaver is the absolute best WYSIWIG web design program available. As with any program, however, you have to know what you're doing in the HTML edit mode... Until all browsers and platforms interpret code the same, we web designers will need to custom-tweak the HTML. (Problems with pages not being truly WYSIWYG when viewed are the result of design/coding errors or platform incompatibilities. Previewing work in multiple browsers/platforms allows you to fix any bugs before anyone ever sees them.)

4-0 out of 5 stars excellent...but...
Good old Macromedia, they've done it again! Created a brilliant program that does just about anything you could wish...and with the wealth of add-ons available (many are free!), it's just about perfect..BUT...make something on a mac that looks great, and be aware that when viewed on a PC it could very well look terrible ....text moved, way too large, spaces added, images with text over, etc etc...I say buy it and wait for this to be solved, it's still too good to miss. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

Adobe LiveMotion offers professional Web graphics and animation, whether you're producing individual Web graphics or entire pages that are complete with interactivity, animation, and sound. LiveMotion delivers the creative tool set that you need to take your Web designs to the next level. Create professional Web animations by using the object-based timeline, modeled after the timeline in Adobe After Effects. Independently animate attributes such as position, opacity, rotation, scale, skew, and color, among many others. Because LiveMotion's timeline is object-based, and not layer-based, each attribute can be keyframed separately. You even can reposition individual keyframes to fine-tune your composition. There's no need to start over if you change your mind; just edit the specific attribute that you want to change at any time. With the LiveMotion Styles palette, you gain a flexible, powerful tool for creating rich Web visuals. Save any combination of creative effects--including color, texture, opacity, gradients, and fills, among others--as a style that can be applied then to other objects in your composition. LiveMotion makes it easy to incorporate your native layered Photoshop and Illustrator files into your LiveMotion composition, and add motion, interactivity, and sound. There's no need to flatten your files or convert them into nonnative file formats. Just drop your layered files into LiveMotion, and you're ready to animate. LiveMotion shares a common user interface with Adobe's other popular design applications, which means a shorter learning curve, so that you can start creating right away. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Director 8.5 Shockwave Studio is an essential and excitingupgrade for Web authors who need the latest 3-D capabilities, Flash,and RealMedia support. Version 8.5 of Macromedia's Director hasstrengthened the product's position as a flagship multimedia tool.

The sheer depth and power of Director 8.5 does not hinder beginners,who will find that the streamlined interface and library ofdrag-and-drop behaviors allow them to produce impressive results quickly. Themore experienced user will find that--with more than 800 new commandscovered in well-written documentation--Director's Lingo scriptinglanguage provides good detail and control over interaction anddelivery.

Director's new 3-D capabilities are based on Intel technology, and aregeared toward delivering the goods regardless of the user's connectionspeed. It does this by employing technology that automatically changesthe detail of 3-D objects depending on the user's bandwidth and thespeed of his or her computer.

Although Director doesn't really help you create 3-D models--you mustimport these from other third-party applications using the new W3Dformat--once in place, key frame and bones-based animation are employedto bring these models to life. In addition, there are a number ofpresupplied 3-D behaviors, particle effects, and an option to renderwith a flat, cartoon-style look. All these factors combine to giveDirector some powerful new moves that will undoubtedly be of enormousinterest to 3-D developers.

Director 8.5 supports two other important Web technologies that furtheradd to its versatility. RealMedia is now supported, allowing the authorto rotate, scale, and skew clips while they are playing. Flash supporthas been updated to version 5, and, with its improved integration, youcan now control Flash media within Director by using Lingo.

Other new and extremely useful features of Director 8.5 ShockwaveStudio include support for XML data and better multiuser serversupport. This includes new server-side scripting and an increase in thenumber of concurrent users to 2,000, which will enable rich andimmersive multiuser experiences.

Game developers and specialists in Web-based interaction willundoubtedly benefit from these new features, which now make Director anessential choice for multiuser, interactive, and online experiences.--John Bloor

In addition, there are a number ofpresupplied 3-D behaviors, particle effects, and an option to renderwith a flat, cartoon-style look. All these factors combine to giveDirector some powerful new moves that will undoubtedly be of enormousinterest to 3-D developers.

Director 8.5 supports two other important Web technologies that furtheradd to its versatility. RealMedia is now supported, allowing the authorto rotate, scale, and skew clips while they are playing. Flash supporthas been updated to version 5, and, with its improved integration, youcan now control Flash media within Director by using Lingo.

Other new and extremely useful features of Director 8.5 ShockwaveStudio include support for XML data and better multiuser serversupport. This includes new server-side scripting and an increase in thenumber of concurrent users to 2,000, which will enable rich andimmersive multiuser experiences.

Game developers and specialists in Web-based interaction willundoubtedly benefit from these new features, which now make Director anessential choice for multiuser, interactive, and online experiences.--John Bloor

5-0 out of 5 stars High files Director 8.5
Director 8.5 is the best thing that has happened for a while. It will help me so much on my game making and it is helpful for other stuff like animations. With its new 3D part you are able to import 3D models and use them in your score. With the 3D models you can create easy 3D games. It is worth getting and has changed Director totally. comparing them from the older versions it is alot better and because you can upgrade it from Director 6 to 8.5 it just shows how Macromedia are the best. Thanks everyone who helped to make it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars .Mac for Mac
I have been a .Mac member since its inception. To fully appreciate the benefits, you really need a high-speed internet connection (DSL or Cable.)
Benefit: An email account with a 15 MB storage limit. (with a mac.com domain name.) You can access mail by using either a web browser (at any location with Internet access) or through any POP-3 mail application (such as Apple's own mail application, Eudora or Entourage.) You can purchase additional email storage space and additional email accounts for other members of your family.
Benefit: Your own private iDisk. iDisk is an online disk drive. Initially, you start with 100 MB of iDisk storage. (If 100 MB is not enough, you can purchase additional space.) iDisk will allow you to backup your important data or share photos or other legally obtained data. You decide what data is public and what remains private. You can build web pages and publish them, because .Mac also acts as a web hosting service.
Benefit: Software downloads; some full applications, some demos - all conveniently accessed from your iDisk (or conventional download, if you prefer.)
Benefit: .Mac also offers a number of discounts.
Other bebefits include an online calendar, data synchronization among multiple computers, online technical support, online tutorials, in the Learning Center and Virex antivirus software and its frequently updated virus definitions.
.Mac is definitely worthwhile. The only thing you really need to decide for yourself, "is it worth the price of admission?" My answer is a hearty "YES!"

5-0 out of 5 stars .Mac Keeps Getting Better
As an early adopter to Apple's new .Mac service, I was mildly impressed. Certainly, the e-mail service had some issues in 2003, but overall, things were good.

Today, however, in 2004, .Mac has become much more useful, stable, and fast. The new design of www.mac.com is both speedy and efficient; my e-mail works flawlessly. There are also more tools to use, such as Homepage and iCard additions. More importantly, being a .Mac subscriber now pays dividends in the form of free software, discounts, and more. I've received at least 2 programs free from .Mac that I use daily.

All around, a great choice!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, but apple should make it cheaper outside the US.
Wonderful service and software. I think I costs around $ 120~130 in Japan and that should be made cheaper as well. ... Read more


156. Norton Internet Security 2.0

Amazon.com Review

Norton Internet Security 2.0 enables users of Mac OS X to secure their Macs from hackers and virus attacks. This suite includes the simple yet effective Norton Personal Firewall 2.0, the best-selling Norton AntiVirus 8.0, and Norton Privacy Control, which prevents private data from ever leaving your Mac. Installation is quick and easy, guiding you through checking your Mac for viruses before you install, and only requiring you to select the level of virus protection you require.

Norton AntiVirus 8.0 not only protects you from a huge list of viruses, it even scans e-mail attachments and file transfers as you download them, allowing you to stop an infected file before it reaches your computer. Keeping the application and its essential virus definitions up-to-date is made simple by the LiveUpdate feature, which allows you to download new versions manually when you are online, or at scheduled times.

Norton Personal Firewall 2.0 is striking in its simplicity. Once you have run the software installer you are protected from all forms of unauthorized access from the Internet, and that's practically all there is to it. Using Norton Personal Firewall 2.0 for the first time, it is surprising to see just how many attempts have been made to access your computer without your permission during an average session on the Net.

To optimize the information logged by Norton Personal Firewall 2.0, the package also includes Who's There? by Open Door Networks. This excellent utility reads the firewall log and provides detailed information on the access attempts that have been intercepted, along with risk ratings for the various types of attack. If you decide to take action against the would-be hackers, Who's There? will even search the online WHOIS database and draft an e-mail to the system administrator of the network from which a particular attack originated.

Norton Privacy Control gives peace of mind by preventing you from unwittingly transmitting private information such as banking details or passwords through your Internet connection. Simply type in the information that you want blocked, and Norton Privacy Control will scan all data sent from your computer and warn you if your private data is being transmitted before it ever leaves your Mac. In addition, Norton Privacy Control provides an end to those dreadful pop-up advertisements you see all over the Internet. Simply drag a pop-up window from your browser onto the Norton Privacy Control trash, and it will be blocked from displaying in the future.

Finally, iClean by Aladdin Systems provides a quick and simple way to clean out unwanted Internet-related files such as browser caches, cookies, and page history files, freeing up valuable disk space and preventing clutter.

Users of Mac OS 8 or OS 9 should note that the Norton Internet Security 2.0 package includes Norton Internet Security 1.0 for operating systems older than Mac OS X, so if you already own this version and do not use Mac OS X, Norton Internet Security 2.0 offers no new features for you.

Mac users who spend much of their time online, and particularly those with broadband connections, will find this suite of security applications an effective way of maintaining peace of mind with minimum fuss. --Daniel Jardine, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Some words about Symantec rebates
If you are thinking about buying norton software simply because they are free after rebates, then reconsider it. Although it's well known Symantec makes reliable softwares, When we talk about their rebates, they are liars. Yes, liars ¨Cthey really deserve this. Based on my personal experience, I even think theirs are worse than the notorious I/O Magic's (aka, Hi-Val, Digital research). I bought several Norton softwares during last December, and submitted the upgrade rebates right away with required items, Guess what, until today I got only one of them, and it has been almost 6 months. I guess they are testing my memory but unfortunately I kept a good record of every rebate I submitted. That's what we should do if we are going to buy Symantec softwares with rebates involved, although the best thing I would recommend is to avoid as long as you can.

4-0 out of 5 stars IMPORTANT! Be careful when installing!!!!!
If you have Mac OS 10.2 (Jaguar), you MUST run the Norton "Live Update" IMMEDIATELY after installing, BEFORE RESTARTING. This version is NOT compatible with 10.2, and thanks to this application, I got to actually see the unshakable OS X CRASH. A rare sight with the solid new operating system. I only discovered this incompatibility after going to the Symantec website as a last resort. I was about to send the software back, and there is no free 800 number to call with questions. The information I found there is as follows, and it's easy.

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO: Install the software, then quit the installer (without restarting). Look in the Internet Security folder for the Live Update icon. Double click and update the software, You will have to enter your user name and password a few times as the updates download and unstuff. Wait for the confirmation page, THEN restart, and it runs perfectly.

1-0 out of 5 stars Be Carful When Installing
I installed this product a month ago. I'm still trying to find out how to change the system password settings. I'm locked out of my own security program! Tech support is impossible and the directions aren't clear.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product!
This package contains Norton AntiVirus and Norton Personal Firewall, two well-known Symantec products (especially Norton AntiVirus). Best of all, you end up spending less money than if you had ordered those two seperately AND you also get some other useful programs. Plus, it works on Mac OS X!

By the way, if you are using Jaguar and this doesn't work, don't return it yet! On Symantec's website they are offering a free upgrade that allows you to use it on Jaguar.

My complaint? Why doesn't Symantec offer an all-in-one package allowing you to purchase everything in both Internet Security AND SystemWorks?

5-0 out of 5 stars Version 1.0.2 DOES work with Jaguar (OS X 10.2)
The latest version of Norton Privacy Control DOES in fact work with Jaguar. The 1.0.2 update is available for FREE via the Symantec LiveUpdate service. ... Read more
