Amazon.com Review

Convergence seems to be the watchword for the Microsoft FrontPage 2002Web authoring system. Every new edition becomes a bit more like the othercomponents of the Office suite, while also increasingly tying in to relatedMicrosoft products and services. This is vaguely threatening to users who wantgreater freedom to edit HTML and other code directly or who want to call all theshots on their sites' designs, but for most users the expediency of FrontPagemakes these sacrifices worthwhile or even unnoticeable.

With new templates and smart tools ("bots") to help create a wide range ofintranet and Internet pages, version 2002 is even simpler and faster to use thanits predecessors. Users can draw with PowerPoint tools, drag and drop livecontent, and create photo galleries with a few mouse clicks. Publishing isincredibly easy. Beginners will love the wizards, and will find Web authoringmuch easier than expected.

Why do so many people have problems with FrontPage? The main complaint is thatthe output, which tends to be flabby and difficult to parse, can't be edited bythe user and is difficult to run on non-Microsoft servers. This is a problem forthose who've gone beyond using wizards and templates to create their pages, butmany other users are content with the results. The automatic direction toMicrosoft-related services is also somewhat troubling--it would be nice, ifunrealistic, for users to have easier access to the wide range of servers ande-commerce providers available.

Still, for Webbies with fairly simple needs and no desire to spend monthslearning the ins and outs of HTML and XML, FrontPage 2002 is most likely the wayto go. --Rob Lightner ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Few are better, and this is essential for some web tasks
I am a reluctant user of MS products. Who really wants to give them more money? But there are few better web editors than this. With this version, FrontPage has surpassed Homesite; but DreamWeaver is still better--probably the only better web development application.
PROS
* Preserves true HTML coding--old versions of FrontPage did not do this
* Great project management: easy to create and use templates for managing entire sites
* Great WYSIWIG editor: If you know how to use Word, you can make an entire website in FrontPage
* Direct access to web host: Don't have to ftp back and forth; if your web host supports FrontPage, you can edit pages directly in your account and see the changes immediately
* SHAREPOINT!!

The Sharepoint deserves more discussion. Sharepoint is a portal, most likely to be used as an Intranet. It has group calendars, file sharing, etc. You can create and manage your own Sharepoint portal from Frontpage. It is an amazing value for small- to medium-size companies.

SHAREPOINT ALONE IS WORTH THE PRICE OF FRONTPAGE! You cannot possibly find a portal for less money. But compare that to the cost of purchasing a comparable portal or leasing one, and this is hands-down a great value. And there is no, I repeat, NO opensource (free) groupware application that can touch Sharepoint yet. (When there is, I'll migrate.)

PURCHASING RECOMMENDATION

* People who know HTML will code without this product in a text editor
* People who want a WYSIWIG development environment should seriously consider this product, though it costs more than some decent WYSIWIG alternatives--nobody else except Dreamweaver comes close to the features FrontPage has
* If you want highly dynamic web pages (ASP, CFM, Flash, etc.), get Dreamweaver
* If you are interested in a Sharepoint portal, this is a must

1-0 out of 5 stars This software does not work
Quite simply this software does not work, and I've been using other versions of FrontPage since it first came out--check out the Microsoft web site--they have loads of 'fixes' for this software. None of the web component functions work, and neither does shared borders. I can't imagine that they would continue to sell this.

1-0 out of 5 stars Flabby non-standards compliant code
If you want to produce standards compliant code that will work with multile servers and browsers then stare clear of FrontPage. Try Homesite or if you have the money DreamWeaver.

1-0 out of 5 stars Professionals Agree: Frontpage Sucks
If you mention Microsoft FrontPage to any serious web developer, you will immediately hear them go off about how awful the program is. I've been making web sites for 7 years and I havent yet met a developer who doesnt hate Frontpage. And this is why:

Microsoft wants to own as much of the computing world as possible. To this end, they're repackaging altered versions of standard programming languages that only work with other Microsoft products.

In short, if you build your site with FrontPage, the site will always be a FrontPage web site. It will be unreadable to any developer because it generates the most atrocious code you've ever seen. What could be simply done with one line of text is converted to 10 lines of convoluted code that only Microsoft products can read. And what if you want to integrate non-Microsoft elements like third-party ecommerce, dynamic data-driven pages, and so on? Forget it. Throw out your web site and start over.

Contrast this to Dreamweaver, which writes clean code that integrates easily with any ecommerce or web development languages, and it's a night or day difference. You can edit HTML directly, or insert ColdFusion, PHP, Javascript, and so on.

And beyond that, FrontPage sites look terrible. You can spot them almost instantly.

Buy Dreamweaver, and you wont regret it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Adobe has taken GoLive, its Web design and management tool, and improvedits integration with other applications, adding a number of useful extras in theprocess. In addition to the design elements of the program, GoLive 6.0 includessections devoted to Web site management and maintenance, as well as teamcollaboration.

The main working area of the program deliberately looks much like other Adobeapplications, making it easy to move between them. The main editing windowsfloat on the GoLive worktop, with palettes of functions controlling the tools.Users can now drag and stash palette tabs individually at the edge of thescreen.

The key new features of GoLive 6.0 can be divided into three areas. Under thedesign-and-develop category comes greatly improved table handling, with newediting features--particularly selection--and increased control of HTML code.Adobe has also integrated GoLive more closely with Photoshop, Illustrator, andLiveMotion.

Manage functions govern how several people working on same aspect of a sitehandle different versions and revisions. The revision list is a good example, asit offers full details of who made certain changes to what, along with the timethe changes were entered.

Finally, there's the deploy function, for when you finally launch your site.This feature offers new and improved support for WML authoring, writing fordisplay on WAP devices, XML, QuickTime, and more of the growing family of Webstandards.

Overall, GoLive is a worthwhile improvement if you're thinking about upgradingfrom a previous version. For newbies, make sure you're serious about Web sitemanagement, as this is a heavyweight tool. --Simon Williams ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Adobe has its work cut out for it
GoLive 6.0 was a marked improvement over the 5.0 release, which was little more FrontPage on steroids in terms of its capabilities. Unfortunately, much beyond that, GoLive still falls pretty far short of the mark for my needs.

I made a serious attempt to move from Dreamweaver to GoLive in an effort to standardize on Adobe tools for web development. I spent a good three months REALLY TRYING to make the switch. The promise of placing native Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop images in a page, and outputting finished GIF or JPG versions had great appeal, as did the promise of image automation (using one master image, and setting properties to change text in a headline graphic, for example). But the promise was a bit better than the reality.

Integration with the rest of the Adobe suite seems to be mostly marketing speak. The interface model may look in some respects like other Adobe products, but in practice, it's only skin deep. GoLive's interface is quirky (then again, so is Dreamweaver's in many respects). Perhaps people who start with GoLive may get used to it; for someone converting from Dreamweaver it was exceptionally difficult. Nothing seemed to be where it belonged, and time with the product did not make it easier.

One thing GoLive has going for it is that -- unlike Dreamweaver -- site definitions are file-based, not stored in the registry. Moving a site under-development from machine to machine is as easy as copying files, and all the necessary details come right across. Very smart indeed. However, the cost of this is a rather unusual way of structuring the hierarchy of folders containing your files.

For my own web implementations, what finally killed it for me was the lack of WYSIWYG support for server-side includes. This is such a fundamental piece of functionality in my view, and without it, most of the sites I'd designed were virtually uneditable in GoLive. While Dreamweaver too has proprietary ways for "including" boilerplate content (templates), at least it also supports industry-standard SSI for those of us who want to avoid proprietary solutions.

For my needs, GoLive needs a substantial amount of work just to regain ground lost to Dreamweaver, let alone actually surpass it. Unfortunately, it's looking more and more like Dreamweaver will have gone through two significant new releases before Adobe gets around to touching GoLive again, which is a real disappointment.

I still have hope for GoLive, and people new to web development with perhaps more confined needs will find it a worthy tool. To be sure, it's several steps above entry-level products like Microsoft FrontPage. But for professional developers, GoLive is #2 in this game, and destined to stay there unless Adobe makes a stronger commitment to the product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Adobe product - but not intuitive
I recently tried out the free download version of two web editors. Adobe GoLive 6.0 and Namo Web Editor 5.5 (also on Amazon). Of the two, I chose Namo WE5.5, as superior. While GoLive seems to offer almost all the features I wanted, it certainly wasn't intuitive. The price was/is a bit high as well at $....

On the other hand, Namo WebEditor 5.5 had all the same features, plus more, and was more intuitive. Not to mention the $... price tag, which can't be beat. Templates, dynamic menus, site management, dynamic content, server side scripting with ASP, JSP and PHP, yea they both have it.

As time goes on, I may use GoLive more often, but for the moment I believe Namo is superior. The fact that both output clean HTML helps, and I am actually able to switch back and forth between both editors.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for you OSX users
I have used Frontpage and Dreamweaver in producing web pages over the past few years. Most of my sites have moved to dynamic webpages using PHP/MySQL on Unix based systems. Adobe GoLive has great support for PHP and MySQL on an OSX based system allowing one to develop sites locally and test them before deployment. This is a cool feature mainly found on the Mac OSX version as I have not used this program on a windows Machine. The closest I come is running Windows 98SE via Virtual PC.

If you use a work group to create webpages, the Adobe WebDEV server is great for manageing changes amoung the different designers. WebDev took a couple installs to work correctly on our MAC workstation that doubles as our development/test server, but once it was set up, it has been easy to use and stable.

The one feature that Golive lacks compared to DW is no intergration of BBedit text editing software. There are still some mac coders that can't live without BBEdit and I am one of them. The lack of cross support with BBedit is why I gave this a 4 star rating instead of a 5.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nope - it's doesn't match Dreamweaver
For the type of webpages I build, the ability to handle dynamic content is a *given*. A good web page creation tool isn't just a glorified text editor with shortcuts.

First, a few good points about GoLive. It's got great directory managing abilities. It comes with quite a bit of jscript and other scripting 'objects'. It's well integrated with photoshop, with the ability to make live previews, etc.

However, it's worst problem is that if you want to use newer web technologies, such as PHP, CSS, and other dynamic content, it isn't any better than a text editor like vi or notepad. As a comparison to Dreamweaver, it just doesn't cut the salt. It won't preview external stylesheets. It won't parse the php on your page to show you what your project would look like upon completion. It can't even handle server side includes.

Granted, Dreamweaver isn't perfect in it's parsing of such things, but GoLive is an order of magnitude worse.

5-0 out of 5 stars Golive, the painless way to web page design
I have used several different programs for web page design including Dreamweaver, Page Mill, Netscape's Composer, Frontpage and others. Whereas Macromedia claims to have many features not found in GoLive, the reverse is actually true. You can view and edit Quicktime movies within GoLive. Changes to image files in photoshop or illustrator are sensed and updated automatically. The workgroup server is the only and best way for sites with many contributors. But mostly, the program is so easy to use and fast to learn, yet powerful. GoLIve has always been the leading edge program, and with workgroup it say in front of the pack. I recommend it without reservation. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Stable and powerful
First, you should know that my perspective is not that of a coder - it's primarily of a designer (although sometimes I do dig into the code a bit).

I've worked with a number of web development packages, including Frontpage, and have found the Dreamweaver series (Ultradev and now Dreamweaver MX) the absolute best choice for anyone serious about developing interactive web sites. It doesn't require any coding experience for many basic design/development goals (although of course the more complex your site is, the better it will be to work in the code).

The software is extremely stable on Windows 2000, and easy enough to use within minutes of installation. I'm amazed at the power of the package - the advanced features take a while longer to learn, but leave you plenty of room to grow.

Beyond the software itself, Macromedia has a very helpful exchange on its site which allows you to add to the functionality of MX by installing "extensions". These extensions extend the functionality of MX and make it even easier to add interactivity.

Bottom line: Strongly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sonner or later, you're going to need Dreamweaver
Dreamweaver is quite simply the de facto standard for WYSIWYG web development. If you are still stuck with Frontpage, GoLive or any other tool, it is time to seriously think of switching. Reason being that the HTML as we know it today is a lot more than the tag soup people are used to (attn: Frontpage and GoLive users) -- it includes a good knowledge of CSS, XHTML, quite frequently even intermediate to advanced levels of JavaScript.

Having used and tried a bunch of alternatives, because DW is sometimes a memory hog (my only quibble with the tool), I am now convinced there is NO HTML tool that comes even close in terms of sheer functionality, period.

The only real contender really was GoLive but the code that is generated by GL is nothing to write home about. DW's siteupload and maintenance features, the incredibly optimized JavaScript, the XHTML 1.0 support built in (and what a treat this is!), the choice of your familiar DW4 interface or the new MX suite look and feel etc etc -- in almost every department, DW is a clear winner. Speaking of the new interface, you'll find after a bit that the MX interface is actually quite efficient -- dockable panels, the new tabbed Insert toolbar, integrated file browsing and the revamped context-sensitive Properties panel.

But where DW really shines, and serious web developers listen up, is its ability to encourage people to be comfortable with advanced code editing within the tool. Features such as "code hinting" which automatically displays appropriate options as you type (usually found among text based code editing tools such as Ultraedit and Homesite), a Snippets panel for storing common pieces of code and some greatly expanded reference material -- the new emphasis is on the tag-based nature of web authoring with a HomeSite-inspired Tag Inspector for viewing an editable list of all tags and their attributes in the current document, and a Tag Chooser and Tag Editor to help you add new ones.

Users of UltraDev 6 (which I was never a fan of) will be happy to note that it is now a seamless part of the core DW program with features such as the new Site Setup wizard and dedicated Database, Bindings and Server Behaviour panels making it relatively straightforward for users to move from creating static HTML to producing server-generated dynamic pages.

What is particularly impressive about the Dreamweaver MX implementation is how broad its server-side support is. As well as ASP and JSP, new support has been added for PHP, ASP.NET, and ColdFusion. Users of the last two server platforms or JSP can also take advantage of the exciting new area of XML-based Web services. Thanks to Dreamweaver MX's dedicated Components panel this becomes a simple task of drag, drop and customize.

All told, this is a top-notch tool and will be coin well-spent one way or another. If you are serious about your work, you could get "TopStyle 3" (a fantastic CSS editor) and "HTML Tidy" and "A Real Validator" for making sure your code is squeaky clean.

3-0 out of 5 stars Dreamweaver MX 2004 - good for PHP, bad for people
I am a big fan of Dreamweaver 4 and have been trying MX 2004 because my DW4 broke. All i can say is it's a great for writing PHP scripts and not much else. Once i switch to design view, i am confronted with stupid things like the cut and paste feature messesing with my code.

If you Google the phrase "Dreamweaver 4 compatible editable regions", you'll find a hack useful in helping all who still stick to the old DW4 template syntex.

1-0 out of 5 stars Macromedia...you've lost my business.
Macromedia...you've lost my business. Other reviewers are right...Dreamweaver has become bloat-ware with too many features no true web-professional needs.

Once upon a time I loved Dreamweaver. It was a great code editor with a simple to use FTP client. But, I've had enough; Dreamweaver MX crashes on me 4X a day on average. I'm going in search of a clean and simple code editor. If I can find one that has some kind of code complete feature for XHTML, CSS and ASP.net, so much the better.

Furthermore, thanks to WYSIWYG editors, I fear that too many developers out there don't really know what they are doing anymore. If you're a novice, here is my advice: learn to hand-code XHTML & CSS for your front-end web development and embrace W3C web standards. I'm serious...do this and you will become a very valuable resource...maybe I'll hire you someday.

Always remember this: the code editor is not your tool; the code is.

1-0 out of 5 stars n00b prog
DW MX is a WYSIMOLWIG (what you see is more or less what you get) program, for n00bs who want to make a website. I'm a proffesional coder (html, php, asp, js, cgi, perl, css and i can also wark with c(++), vbs and pascal), and this program sux. If you want to make a website, go get yourself a book about html, later php and asp. If you make a website yourself in pure html, you exactly know what you're doing opposite to dreamweaver. I only use dreamweaver sometimes, to look up a tag, testing a php script or testing something on my html pages.
Conclusion: dreamweaver is defenetly NOT worth its price actually, it would be a nice program for quick testing if it was free. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great combination at a great price!
The combination of FrontPage and PhotoDraw is almost unbeatable. Sure, you can spend tons of money on more sophisticated packages and you can also spend a lot more time learning them. But if your goal is to get a site up and running quickly then this suite is the way to go.

As a web designer myself, most customers are happy with the results I give them using just these two packages alone. I would recommend some good books to go with them but this package is worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
Hi, I use all web design tools everyday. But my favourite is FrontPage 2000 and for graphic work I strongly recommand PhotoDraw 2000 Version 2. In todays fast paced world only fastest person can survive in design industries. Front Page 2000 and Photo Draw 2000 version 2 can increase your productivity and creativity like anything and that too withou knowing anythign about html or coding. PhotoDraw (Guess how this name is derived?....yes, you guessed right... combination of two big names)can do two work Photo Editing and Drawing.... so you do not need to learn two different product. PhotoDraw is so easy, you will be surprised to see you creating 3D roll overs and animation in seconds... FrontPage 2000 is complete software. Even you can connect you database on site. (This feature is not available with any other same level rival product) With FrontPage you can connect live data on web site, that too withou knowing anything about database programme or ASP .... Yes you even do not need to know what ASP is. Onely one line:- You do not need to type single line for coding to master FrontPage 2000. Hasit Dave hasitdave@yahoo.com

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional hassle-free Web creation tools
This is an excellent combination for the professional and hobby Web designer. FrontPage 2000 is so easy to use, even my 11-year old can now design professionally looking Websites. And there are so many features within FP and all of them are easy to implement. While with other programs it may take hours and lots of code knowledge, in the case of FrontPage it's click and paste and you can do the work in minutes and it's actually fun. Sure, there are some limitations, but other software can cost a multiple of this Microsoft package and with these other software packages usually you have to learn Html code, etc. and these are not as efficient as FrontPage. Overall, FrontPage offers a lot of possibilities and if you integrate PhotoDraw it expands your creative possibilities even further. At first I didn't like PhotoDraw that much as I was used to Adobe applications, but as I learned to use PhotoDraw I figured out many of the features and it was fairly easy to create exciting graphics. PhotoDraw allows you to create animated Gifs, rollover effects and it has also a number of Web graphics that can be specified to your own liking. While new users may have to get used to PhotoDraw, once the basic steps and features are understood, which is not that difficult to learn, PhotoDraw becomes a fun tool and in the combination with FrontPage your graphics will shine as an excellent application on your Website. People always ask me how we created this feature and that effect, and with other software it would take a long time to write all this code, but with FrontPage and PhotoDraw it can be done in minutes and in a snap. You may also want to buy a few books to learn both programs with its more sophisticated applications more quickly, which can be learned in a weekend.

3-0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive Web creation bundle isn't the best
The big plus of the FrontPage/PhotoDraw bundle is the price. This is one of the least expensive Web design suites. Unfortunately, it is far from the best.

While priced for the lower end of the market, FrontPage/PhotoDraw is really competing with higher-end tools from Adobe and Macromedia. Head-to-head, the Microsoft bundle does not fair that well, and I've written a separate review of Front Page elsewhere on the site which details some of its problems. Instead, I recommend some combination of Macromedia Dreamweaver or Adobe GoLive for page creation, and Macromedia Fireworks or Adobe Photoshop for images. While more expensive than the Front Page bundle, the Adobe and Macromedia products go beyond facilitating page editing and site management to actually be inspirational, creative tools.

If you are just starting out, it's best to get your feet wet with free and shareware tools, and there are quite a few good ones. These include Netscape Composer, Namo WebEditor, and even FrontPage Express. There are several good HTML text editors as well, including HotMetal and Allaire Homesite. For editing, Paint Shop Pro is very good. You might find that you never have to move beyond these excellent and inexpensive page creation tools. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice software and amazing customer service!
I too bought this software because of the FREE after rebate offer and wanted to use it to help with my hobby and church websites.I find the software helpful since I am rusty on my web development.However, I never received anything back from the rebate company even after multiple emails requesting the status and being told the rebate expired and my request was no longer valid.I even wrote them a letter and resent a copy of all my rebate materials (I always photocopy everything before I send it in) and still received no response.I then went to the Elibrium website (manufacturer of the My Web Studio software) and emailed their customer service department.I received a telephone call within an hour and they are sending me my rebate tomorrow.This was amazing customer service and I hope they evaluate the company that handles their rebates.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not work your money, time and effort
Well the 2 guys were lucky.I bought it because of the "free after rebate" promo but I NEVER GOT the rebate.Same issue with the 4 other items I got for "free after rebate".After I've submitted the orignal receipts and UPC symbol and rebate form, they send me a card to tell me that it was a duplicate, then later on after I contacted them about it to testify that it was an original, they say that they don't have a record of my submissions.Bull!!

I check http://www.elibrium.com recently and I couldn't get to the page.I was able to before.Perhaps this company is going out of business... and scamming people on their way down.

What a lesson for me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth the Price
I also bought this software while it was free after rebate (which I'm still waiting for after 12 weeks). (...)I was also disappointed to find that after paying (...) it didn't even come with a hard copy of the manual.There was only a soft copy on the CD-ROM.I think that speaks for itself that this program was (...) definitely not worth the money.

3-0 out of 5 stars Some good features
I got this while it was free after rebate.There are some useful features in here such as clip art and a text designer.Other parts such as the button tool are practically useless. Some parts of the program have a good interface and look while others just feel sort of cheap. I'm glad I got this, but I wouldn't if I had payed more than $20 for it.$50 is certainly way too much to pay. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Macromedia's Dreamweaver MX is a topflight Web editor for dynamic sitesas well as static pages. Dreamweaver's excellent visual tools generate code thatworks across all the leading Web browsers, winning it the respect ofprofessionals. Its availability on the Mac as well as Windows is another strongfeature for designers. The product is also extensible, with a huge range ofthird-party add-ons available from Macromedia's Web site, many of them free ofcharge. There is great support for Internet standards, including cascading stylesheets, XHTML, and accessibility features. Built-in validating mechanisms makeit easy to check a page, and everything is highly configurable so you canspecify the standards you want to support.

This is a visual editor, which means you can create and edit a Web page byselecting items such as tables, forms, and images from a tabbed palette. TheProperties panel lets you specify details such as borders, styles, andhyperlinks, and you can also use the visual editor for frames and layers. Manydesigners also like to edit the underlying HTML, and this is where DreamweaverMX comes into its own. It supports either a pure code view or a split view thatlets you click seamlessly between the code and visual editors. A lot of thefeatures previously found in HomeSite, Macromedia's text-based Web editor, arenow integrated into Dreamweaver, including pop-up code hints, a snippets panelthat lets you keep handy pieces of code for reuse, and a tag chooser that letsyou grab the right tag from a list. An O'Reilly tag reference is built in.

Dreamweaver's template support deserves special mention. Templates give you aquick start with a number of predesigned pages. In Dreamweaver MX, they can alsobe used to lock down areas of the page, so that contributors can create and edita story without disturbing the design. Templates can be nested so that changesto an underlying template ripple through the pages that use it for powerfulsite-wide updates.

Macromedia used to market a product called Dreamweaver UltraDev, which allowedfor rapid development of Web applications featuring online databases, memberlogin, and other server-side elements. In Dreamweaver MX, this capability isbuilt in. It has also been extended, adding support for ASP.NET and PHP as wellas ColdFusion, JavaServer pages, and traditional ASP. Nonspecialists will findthemselves able to build rich dynamic pages, while the integrated code editormakes this a capable development product as well. In fact, Dreamweaver MX hasalso replaced ColdFusion Studio as the primary development tool for ColdFusionMX. It is a uniquely flexible package.

Overall, it's hard to find fault with Dreamweaver MX. It's true that itscomplexity and professional features make it harder to pick up than some rivalproducts. The abundance of panels and options can be confusing, and ahigh-resolution screen is required. In addition, the Studio MX products, whichinclude Dreamweaver, are a better value for those who need more than one of theMX series. However, this takes nothing away from the excellence of Dreamweaveras the first-choice tool for professionals. --Tim Anderson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than I expected it to be!
I have been a user of Dreamweaver through versions 3 and 4. When I redesigned my site to make extensive use of CSS, I found that DW4 had a difficult time rendering the pages and would often crash. So, reading that MX had better CSS support, I upgraded based solely on that.

Indeed, Dreamweaver MX handles my CSS-styled pages with aplomb. But to my delight, it adds many features which I have found invaluable, such as "Snippets" (a library of code fragments you can insert anywhere), the ability to "cloak" folders so that they are not included when synchronizing to the server (invaluable for log and statistics folders on the server), the FTP log, a much improved style sheet editor, a nicer and more configurable workspace, and much, much more.

Dreamweaver MX is a delight to use and has made development and maintenance of my web sites even easier than in previous versions. If you have an earlier version of Dreamweaver, MX is definitely worth the upgrade. (And if you don't have Dreamweaver, you're missing out on what I think is the world's best web site design and maintenance product.)

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the better editors
I've used FrontPage, FirstPage 2000, and other site design packages. MX is THE most comprehensive site design product on the market to date. With integrated Flash, PHP, ASP, JSP, and others support, it makes site design easier. Too bad they don't support the processing of forms; hopefully that will come with time.

From a CIW certified professional.

5-0 out of 5 stars analyse your need before you upgrade
In terms of pure dreamweaver functionality, this version doesnt have any ground breaking advances, but by the inclusion of ultra-devs data driven dynamic site development tools, dreamweaver and ultra-dev have finally merged into one product dreamweaver mx.

Having been a user of both Dreamweaver and Ultra-dev since their arrival on the pro web design scene, this represents a big change in one respect in that data driven web sites are now being delivered into the hands of every web site producer with the same product they use to design simple pages.

The most exiting thing for me is the new PHP feature, and in this i find Macromedia continuing in their trend of offering what their users are most hungry for, now i have no excuse for not learning PHP.

In terms of changes to the actual core design product, i have been happily switching between dreamweaver 4 and mx, and theres nothing in mx that i cant live without, obviously im not here refering to the dynamic data side of things here.

thankfully you can work with mx and make it look like the old dreamweaver interface, im currently working with the new integrated interface, and it all looks a bit frontpage to me, ill give it a chance though, admittedly it is slighly more efficient, but its just starting to look a lot less like a design tool, and a lot more like a developers tool.

Of the new features the ability to creare code snippets is pretty handy, but nothing too revolutionary, and the tag-inspector does speed up speed of changes to the code minded, but again nothing very new.

if your using dreamweaver for mainly design orientated web production, its possible the new features may not be enough to sway the upgrade, one big plus is the support for all the new and emergent technologies and standards, xml, xhtml, and as i mentioned earlier PHP on the dynamic side.

Dreamweaver is still the leading professional web design tool, it will reward all the learning by giving an easy to use cutting edge web development tool. The huge community of developers and users who provide countless extensions to dreamweaver allow easy adaption to whatever tasks it may be put.

5-0 out of 5 stars Even great for novices.......if you take the time
At first glance, the Dreamweaver [DW] interface seems very complicated but after using it for a while, the interface is very intuitative. I was using FrontPage [FP] for web design, but I couldn't control the layout of the tables on the page. I am not a pro. With DW I could! The properties of each element can be shown in a little box on the screen [a improvement over R mouse clicking on then clicking on the properties tag in FP]. The eye dropper icon works anywhere on the the open program - I could grab colors off the menu bar!

Not all was rosy at first.........I installed a demo on two different computers and both computers locked up when using ...it seemed to be very unstable. So I looked to tech support and could not find anyone to call.....so I entered the support forum and posted what happened. My answer came within 24 hours in a dialogue with another user. After that the program ran relatively flawless. A note.....this program can consume a lot of resources on a Win 9.x/Me system and anti-virus software will cause it to crash - SOLUTION: turn your anti-virus software off and make sure you don't have a lot of unnecessary background programs running........give it lots of breathing room!

FP is used a lot because it has a relatively easy look and feel but once you get used to FP, the quirks and limitations begin to show. In DW if you are interesting in seeing how code is formed, just switch to the Code/view and 2 windows open - your WYSIWYG window and the HTML code above! Great!

Conclusion: Download the Demo from Macromedia - don't be put off by the seemingly complicated interface, play around and see for yourself. Then buy it. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Slower and buggier than previous versions, if more powerful.
On the good side, we finally have OS X versions of these mainstay web design 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, Dreamweaver on my G4/733 feels MUCH 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). Or, in the Style Sheet edit window, styles are unordered, making it very hard to find a particular style.

And basic functions like launching the app, quitting, opening a file, opening the Site view, saving as, and so forth, are S - L - O - W. It's just a drag to use this software. We should be damanding far more from our application creators like Macromedia.

5-0 out of 5 stars WYSIWYG is what the Mac is famous for.
Dreamweaver has been my choice for web editing since I figured out what I was doing. I started with Adobe PageMill, so the logical step should have been GoLive. But, I had a choice and Dreamweaver won out.

Combining the functionality of Dreamweaver, and the dynamic engine of UltraDev, MX completes this program's journey to what the web should be. Roundtrip editing for Flash MX and Fireworks MX as well, make these programs a designer's dream suite.

Macromedia has made me a fan for life with the latest updates. Fully compatible with both OS X and OS 9. (This review is based on the pre-release download version.) ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I like the programs, but I think it needs improvement.
I bought this package based on a friend's recommendation. Looking back I wish I had saved the money and just bought Dreamweaver. I think they are both great programs, but from my experience you need only need one. If you own Illustrator or Photoshop you can build your graphics there and import them into Dreamweaver. If you don't just buy Fireworks, you can build an entire site and all your graphics in this program.

I am a novice at web design, and I wanted to jump right in with setting up a site. I found both of the instructional guides a bit frustrating and overwhelming. I was surprize to find that I even though I had bought the Mac version, the instruction books were cross-platform for both PC and Mac, favoring the PC platform. (A HUGE turn-off for a Mac person like me.)

After doing the tutorials I tried to build my site by using both programs. I am mainly a print designer and was thinking that Dreamweaver and Fireworks like I use QuarkXPress and Illustrator, but it doesn't work that way.

Like I said before you only need one. I think they are both great programs, but I don't see the need to have both, which is why I gave it a four.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great program, documentation could be better
A complete novice in web design, I just spent 4 days developing an 8 page web site with Dreamweaver, which I had never used before. The web site's great, and I love the program. An excellent tutorial guides you through the basic steps, and Macromedia provides a 400+page downloadable reference manual. A bit bulky, and difficult to find what I needed, but the program itself is pretty intuitive, once you've worked through the tutorial. I still haven't figured out how to upload my HTML files using Dreamweaver (as far as I can tell, you're supposed to be able to), which is why I rate this only a 4; otherwise, from uploading graphics and text to layout and links, a user friendly program that will have you on the www in no time at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dreamweaver is a dream come true!
Dreamweaver is well beyond its opponets in web-design, and anybody who designs web pages should have this program! Packing every single tool you would need or ever want to make your website the way you want it, Dreamweaver is easy from the start. Although I'm not an actual owner of Dreamweaver, I have friends who own this product, and every one of them has been blown away bit it, including me. This program is easy to use, and for those who are still using old programs like "Visual Page", I suggest that you upgrade to this program, which you will never regret. Many people still stick with the old fashioned way of making mouse-overs, but Dreamweaver makes it easy, and this can be done in under a minute, without having to spend hours on Java coding. I personally like this program much more then Adobe "GoLive", which are the two leading web-design programs. Make your choice, but I think Dreamweaver is the true program that will make every website look incredible. It's worth the price tag, every cent! The day will come soon when I hope to have the priviledge of owning this program myself. ... Read more

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' strengthslie in its focus on the creation and optimization of bitmapped and vector Webgraphics. The files are integrated into Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver easily,and importing/exporting Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files is a breeze;especially with the program's improved layer mask handling, and a new Color FillLive effect. Version 4 rolls out a new interface that Flash, Dreamweaver, andFreeHand users will recognize. This standardized format also offers tabbed menusfor easy customization, and helps keep the screen tidy. New tools for addinginteractive elements--rollovers, navigation bars, and pop-up menus--are awelcome sight. And a Live Animation feature creates frame-based GIF animations,using symbols, instances, and tweening features that are familiar to Flashusers. With built-in HTML and JavaScript capabilities, version 4 delivers thegoods to the Web graphics design community.

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 ... 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!

5-0 out of 5 stars Undeserved bad wrap on reviews
I think these people are either being totally unfair or just dont know how to use this software. I purchased this back at version 4.0 and i honestly think it blows frontpage and many other editors out of the water. This software handle's tables like a champ, the best i've ever seen. i admit i was a bit taken back by the software when i first started using it, but give yourself time to actually learn how to use it and you'll see it's an EXELLENT tool. For the person that stated "everytime I placed another object on the screen everything else shifted"... yeah, thats going to happen with any html editor unless you USE tables. It can't be avoided. Again... take the time to learn how to use this software and it will be your best friend!

2-0 out of 5 stars WYSIWYG is not what you'd expect
I tried this product and luckily I was able to return it. When I first ran this program I must have stared at the screen for five minutes trying to figure out what to do first - not very intuitive in my opinion.

The drag and drop is atrocious - it's not exactly what I would call WYSIWYG. I dropped a small graphic onto the page editor and the graphic expanded to fill the whole page. Placing text is just as bad. When I think of WYSIWYG, i expect the graphic, or text, to stay right where I placed it. Not so - everytime I placed another object on the screen everything else shifted.

After reaching my max frustration level, I decided to consult the manual. I discovered that it is necessary to work with tables and frames to get a decent layout. What a pain in the a$$ (wallet)!

Try Web Easy by V-Com. It's much easier to use.

4-0 out of 5 stars Web Page Construction Kit 6.0 is excellent
I am an experienced author and well acquainted with publishing on paper. I found on producing my own website with no previous knowledge of HTML that this programme served extremely well for the type of site I needed, mainly text orientated, easily upgraded and edited, with a swift built-in ftp and very few problems. I found it relatively easy to fit in images. The manual had all the usual problems of manuals written by writers from the IT world and lacked an accurate structure but with patience and an expectation of not everything being obvious at first glance, I soon became accustomed to it. I did not require advanced animations etc so cannot estimate how good it might be for these but I rate it as the best of the web builders for beginners I have seen, far better than Microsoft's "front page". I have not yet seen version 7.0 but hope to buy it when it is available here in the U.K.

1-0 out of 5 stars User-hostile
I purchased this software in hopes that it would enable me to build a professional-looking Web site without getting bogged down in html coding. It's OK for simple text, but that's about as far as it goes. The manual is impenetrable and seems to have no bearing on the way the software actually works. I could not even find one of the program's most critical components -- a graphics editor that allegedly enables you to place images in a Web page by "dragging and dropping" them. I don't know if it failed to install with the rest of the program or if it's just hidden away in some obscure corner of it. The images and fills that come with this program are very limited and amateurish. Fuggedaboutdit!

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor customer service
I cannot believe that a software company this big has such poor customer service. If you do buy a product from them make sure you keep your original tracking/order confirmation number or you will get no help at all. Their software customer service dept. cannot cross reference names with order numbers or vice versa, (AND THIS IS A SOFTWARE CORPORATION). The girl that I spoke with was no help, her supervisor doesnt have a name or extension and the order proccessing dept. cannot be reached at any time. I cannot believe that they are actually trying to sell merchandise.
Well they dont have any more of my business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's one of the best ( Whith out a doubt )
Probably as most of you know there are two major browsers which are Netscape and Internet Explorer. I have both and and like both but they are quite different Netscape supports the basics and more. While Explorer does support support quite a bit but mainly DHTML. It also has an E-Mail account and AOL's Instant Messenger 3.0 and a Word Processor. It's all fairly simple to understand the browser whithout having a great deal internet knowledge and I believe that Netscape is one of the best if not the best. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best I've used.
I have used many products, from straight editors like TextPad and NoteTab to Cold Fusion Studio and Microsoft FrontPage. I have their strengths and weaknesses. I personally prefer Macromedia for it's suite approach of tying the products together for high powered web development. I especially use Dreamweaver and Fireowrks extensively together. Dreamweaver also can handle ASP, JSP, PHP and ColdFusion development.

Then you also get Flash, Freehand and ColdFusion Developer to boot.

Tell me another that works with all and has all the powerful tools that Macromedia has and I will definitely be interested!
Buy it before December 31, 2002, as it goes up after that. It's now... on Macromedia's site and about... at Amazon after rebates. It's a great investment.

There's also a cheaper Macomedia web design product out there now called Contribute. I paid an introductory $99 to check it out for my daughter who is also starting to build web pages at 6 years old. So far it seems easy to use for people who don't want to get into the coding side of things.

The Macomedia Studio MX suite is definitely the way to go if you have the money. It's well worth it!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Value for your money
Ok first thing I want to say, I do not work for Macromedia, and my only motivation in writing this, is to help you. This is THE best suite to design, code, and publish a very cool, engaging website. I do not know of any other software package that comes close. In my opinion Adobe tried and failed, (plus it costs a ton), Bill Gates crew is not even in the same game. The only challenge is the learning curve you will encounter, if you are not familiar with Macromedia's products. Now this may be a little presumptuous on my part, but I would go so far as to say if you are not using Dreamweaver and flash, you are not in the web development game seriously. I would guess that some of your efforts might have ended up on "Webpage's that [stink]" website. This is a tremendous value and you could make a career out of mastering anyone of the applications included in Macromedia Studio.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bogus software
I received CD-ROM that was not a used one as advertised, but a copy. Before trying to load it, I went to Macromedia's website to check the serial number and found that Macromedia didn't accept the number as valid. No response from customer service after one week of sending an email request for a refund.

5-0 out of 5 stars I switched from the other one
Yep there comes a time in one's life when they just have to give up on tools that are more trouble than doing it by hand. Yep I tried the other one to find that you had to by 'Publisher just to get it to the site. Then you find that they site has to be dedicated enough to have half the cone on it just to support what you cave composed. Well enough is enough.
Now this here Studio MX animal is great. Moet of the functions are contained in the product its self and very little support is needed by the web site provider. With the split screen you can get closer to the code. I wish there were more beginning templates but there is sufficient quantity to get you off the ground. The transfer of information from and to different sites is amazingly simple. I will not go into the details of all the marvelous cross-product integration and leading design tools just to say that if you can think about it, it is here.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
If you are a professional web designer, this is a must have. If you are a home user and want to design a personal site, this program will make it a lot easier than any other program.

It may look more confusing than Frontpage - but you have to get into it to see that it's actually much easier and offers so much more.

You also won't have "front-page" extension issues with the hosting companies. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any easier!!!
Easy Office is one of the simplest yet sophisticated programs I have ever come across. As an avid Microsoft user, I was initially suspect as to just how versatile the Office programs were - I just figured this was a watered down version, and probably wouldn't have all the utilities I needed. What a pleasant surprise. Here is a very cheap, excellent alternative to other office suite products that allows quick and easy interface, and is incredibly user friendly. Try the spreadsheet, it's brilliant.

5-0 out of 5 stars Help for the Helpless
Love it! Love it! Bought my first computer 8 months ago and it came with every piece of software Microsoft makes. We have a small business and I hoped to use the Word and Office products to get me up and running. Bought Books--hired a tutor--still too much to cope with. Read the reviews on Easy Office and thought 'why not'. It comes in a box with just the CD--no book. It looked like big trouble ahead! Boy, was I wrong. The Tutorial comes right up before you start anything. You know what to look for in advance and the 'Help' really does just that--tells you what to do and how to do it in plain language. This product is the BEST!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Excellent

Incredible value for even more incredible money. I love it. This is truly 21 century software and all that an average person needs for their home office use. At least that is all I need. Very practical and useful, sophisticated yet very easy to use. That is all I wanted, I got it and I am very happy shopper. Highly recommended to all who are looking for an affordable Microsoft Software alternatives. Excellent review goes to Mr. Howard Schneider at e-press and many thanks for his kind of feedback and helpful information. Good Luck and Best New Year Wishes to the next "Bill Gates."
