One of the best and most powerful web development tools using WYSIWYG developmental approach

By Vincent Logan Varenberg

On Friday, November 28, 2014

I have personally been an avid fan and user of Dreamweaver even way back even before it was acquired by Adobe and it was known then as Macromedia Dreamweaver. I like Dreamweaver specifically because of its robustness and versatility. Now in its newest version, Dreamweaver CS5 is a far cry from its Macromedia days.

Dreamweaver CS5 is one of those web development software that lets developers see the way how their site page will look, as well as show the corresponding codes. Even though Dreamweaver is one of those top-level software that experts use, it also happens to be a great starter software for web developers who want to sharpen their web development skills. Users can select templates and customize it, add images and links and make the final touches. Really very easy to learn. More advanced users can also take advantage of Flash elements that can be added to their websites.

Overall, Dreanweaver CS5 is an excellent web development tool that all web developers at any level will truly find very useful.

Pros

  • Great WYSIWYG web development tool
  • Perfect for beginners while challenging at the same time for intermediate to expert developers

Cons

  • Some visual aspects need to be fine-tuned at the code side

A complex web design application tool that is suitable for novices

By Beatrice Tan

On Tuesday, July 29, 2014

There has been enormous web development application, and one of the most eminent nowadays is the Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 they simply does everything you need.

This web design program has two major features. First is the faster development which is not that user friendly to those who are just starting up. This feature is appropriate for those who have prior experience in using the web development app. I also tried the Live View feature that allows me to easily fix the layout and have a final look at my web page. Second is the Browser Lab Integration, which allows me to view my work in different operating systems and browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Also, it has enhance support for Subversion, integration and expanded support for Content Management Systems.

To sum it up, this web design program is highly recommended because of this high level tools for advanced users but more overwhelming for the novice ones.

Pros

  • It has a live view enhancements which has dynamic content
  • It has useful tools for interacting with CSS
  • It has a BrowserLab integration, for testing pages on operating systems and web browsers

Cons

  • It has minimal changes from CS4 release
  • It has sketchy features for newbies
