The battle is here. With Dreamweaver and GoLive now both owned by Adobe, what will get included in Creative Suite? The answer is… both.
CS Premium will include both GoLive and Dreamweaver. I wonder how long that will last? And I guess Fireworks will disappear which is sad. I’ve never felt that Photoshop was that great for web graphics.
I’ve used Dreamweaver/Fireworks since version 2. I started using it because it intergated nicely with HomeSite, the HTML editor I’ve used since Nick Bradbury (a UT alumni) still owned it.
Sadly Homesite appears to be another neglected product. Allaire kept developing it, and Macromedia kept it current, but I doubt Adobe sees a need for it. I’m mostly using a Mac this days anyway, so no more Homesite for me.
I mainly use Dreamweaver in code view since it doesn’t display CSS layouts as well as i would like. I’ve never used GoLive that much. Hopefully Adobe will take the best features from GoLive and Dreamweaver and make a great product. The chances of that are probably pretty slim…
