I have been using RW since 2005 and have generally been pleased with it. It's easy to use and one can create professional-looking websites in no time at all. Community support is top-notch. Be prepared to purchase extra plugins for additional features. One thing that bothers me, however, is the upgrade price. I realize developers need to make a living, and should be paid for their efforts. But now Realmac Software wants 49.99 to upgrade to version 5 (up from 39.99). That is over 50% of the purchase price, which to me is excessive. There are many other excellent applications out there, for which I have purchased upgrades, that do not charge so much as a percentage of new license purchases. It also bothers me to see Rapidweaver bundled with other apps for the same price as an upgrade. What a way to thank a loyal customer base. So, for now, I won't be upgrading to version 5.0, especially since Version 4 is working just fine for my needs.
Won't even open on Lion for me. Version 1.0? Are you kidding me?
Version 2 is excellent. I appreciate how the developer solicited opinions from beta testers, fixed bugs immediately, and put out an excellent upgraded version. Arq provides peace of mind for 30 bucks, and Amazon's pricing for backup is most affordable as well.
