Dreamweaver CC 2017 is essentially Brackets.app (Open Source, free and cross-platform) with a lot of unnecessary features, bundled with terrible reputations. It is an ok tool if you turn off its visual editor and Live Preview and use it strictly as a code editor. But in that case, you are practically using Brackets.app inside Dreamweaver. Anyone who is serious about web development and wants to get a decent job should skip it and go straight to a more robust code editor such as Atom, Sublime Text, Brackets, BBEdit, and so on. The majority of potential employers will cringe at your tool choice if you use Dreamweaver. Real coders use a serious text editor. Dreamweaver’s latest set of features are geared toward coders, but they don’t realize that web developers nowadays already use those features through an array of command line tools and a decent code editor, so they will likely yawn. Adobe is probably bringing this version of Dreamweaver to existing users who are forced to use it in a big corporation or a design studio. For them, it’s an ok tool as long as they use it correctly. For others, Dreamweaver isn’t even under their radar at this point, and using it does more harm than good. Steer clear of it.

There are, indeed, a variety of alternatives to Dreamweaver - ranging from 100% visual to code-only tools: VISUAL - Responsive Site Designer - Freeway Pro - Blocs App - Sparkle COMBO VISUAL+CODE - Flux - Pinegrow GUIDED CODING - Coda - BBEdit Not included here are the many online-only tools, which allow you to design web pages on your browser. There really is no reason to support a software subscription model.

I just bought the latest update for Flux and it is awesome! I have been using Flux on and off for a few years, it was very different and somewhat hard to use. The latest update, Flux 6 has fixed a lot of the issues and idiosyncrasies it had. I encourage everyone to download a demo and try it out. I love working with it now. The developers respond to issues and comments quickly. I have tried Pinegrow, I did like it, but I do like Flux better. I have trashed all my copies of Dreamweaver!

I just checked with Adobe Sales. There is no discount for existing DW owners. The price is $19.99/month for a one year contract and $29.99 for a single month. The $9.99/month is for photoshop/lightroom. There business model is gone downhill since this CC thing started. Why would someone want to rent software unless you are a high-end professional? Since I am a hobbyist and do all my work for non-profits on a volunteer basis, it leaves me out in the cold. I will continue to use the old one I own.

Frankly, there really is no reason for a Mac user to bother with this app. So many better and cheaper alternatives available. From Coda to Espresso to BBEdit to Sublime Text, Mac users have plenty of options to choose from.

We do. Though those text editors you mentioned doesn't replace Dreamweaver according to how most people use the app. I used to use Dreamweaver as a code editor as its WYSIWYH sucked, and found it quite useful as that. Espressos preview is better now, but it's still a code editor, which I do prefer but many others doesn't. I bought Macaw, which really is the opposite of a code editor, that so far haven't lived up to its promises. If it does, it will be a strong candidate to become a real replacement of Dreamweaver.

I strongly disagree. Dreamweaver is the only full-fledged WYSIWYG page creation app for the Mac platform (and, despite what Mikael B says, I think it's a damn good one, day in and day out it's my workhorse application). Everything else I've seen either involves you in writing code, in which case you don't need an app. like this, or uses a simple template-based approach designed for newbies and joypoppers but of no use whatsoever for doing more sophisticated work.

And this is precisely the problem. Adobe enjoys a monopoly over this particular kind of software, since for some reason no developer has seen fit to offer a serious alternative. And Adobe has chosen to behave like any other monopolist in adopting an extortionate, piratical business model.

Hey, wait a minute. So we developers that have the CS 6 Premiere bundle that cost a fortune, can't enjoy this update? I think this a huge rip-off not worthy any and respectable company. Please correct me if I'm wrong, and this new extension also can be enjoyed on CS 6.

Let's see, we've had The New Coke. We've had J. C. Penney with its no-sales policy. Now we have Adobe's CC. If I'm not mistaken, the first two of these three flopped so badly that a change in CEO's was in order. Let's see if Adobe can pull off the hat trick.

Actually the New Coke didn't flop, and now it's sold as Diet Coke and is their biggest selling product. They still sell New Coke in some markets. I liked it better, but that's because I don't drink Coke Classic and prefer Pepsi. The reason they introduced that was to have it taste like Pepsi, since Pepsi was beating them in taste tests. But I don't dink soft drinks anymore. :) My guess about CC is that Adobe realized that people would rather pirate Photoshop and their other apps, since they are so expensive, and people don't have a lot of money these days, and they probably wanted to raise prices again, so the CEO of Adobe could buy more Diet Coke. So some bean counter came up with the monthly payment/rental/subscription idea. To counteract the outrage over not owning the software you are paying for, they threw in all the updates for "free." Except it's not free. The subscription plan might be a good alternative for some people, but they should not force you into it. I bet if large corporations just kept using CS 6, along with individual artists/designers, they would drop the idea.

Drdoog, that implies you are playing the $19.99 Single-app annual plan. They bill you $239.99 a year. You can still buy Dreamweaver CS 6 for $229.89. For the whole Creative Cloud suite, you will pay $599.88 a year, or $5,998.80 a decade. If you decide to play monthly, it's $74.99 a month, or $899.88 a year. All they are really doing is offering payment plans to buy their software, elect you are only renting it.

So they buy out Macromedia, kill competition and then screw over consumers. Bye, bye Adobe and your greed with your Creative Cloud subscription model.

Yes! GoLive was so much better than DreamWeaver. But then all the Windows users started using DreamWeaver when it was a Macromedia product for boring ass corporate sites, and Adobe wanted into that market. I even liked Adobe PageMill better than DW. C'est la vie!
