Since Adobe so abruptly discontinued Golive 9 I'm left without an upgrade. If anyone is willing to sell me a copy of their Golive 9 I'd be willing to discuss it. Please leave me a message on iSawYou.com and we can talk about it.

Yes, I have tried ebay and a few other places but that version was never sold as a boxed version, only as a download, so the chances of it ending up on ebay are very slim. I'm really bummed by this...if you can help me find a copy I'd be most appreciative!!

GoLive 9.0.

I thought, maybe, Adobe would fix this application. It is far more wothless and frustrating than the previous two versions. It writes spontaneous code that is just plain WRONG!

Unless you want a major headache and like going through and fixing everything it writes, steer far clear!

This is PRE-Beta software. You shouldn't have to pay for it.

i'm surprised to see this release. i'd thought golive [along with freehand] was destined to be taken out the back and put out of its misery with adobe's gobbling up of macromedia. but it seems like [for whatever reason] adobe thinks there's life in the old dog yet.

i used to use golive way back in the days when it was called 'golive cyberstudio' [before adobe gobbled them up as well!] and it was streets ahead of the similarly youthful dreamweaver at the time - at least in terms of ease of use. that was back when both apps created their layouts using clunky, hacky, nested tables, built with horrible code spaghetti - when no-one really cared about concepts like standards compliance, as long as it worked on exploder and netscrape.

then when using CSS for layout became the 'next big thing' golive was left behind, as macromedia started really pushing the fact that dreamweaver wrote 'clean, standards compliant code' and thus dreamweaver gained the reputation as being the professional's choice. it was complete bollox of course. dreamweaver still generates horrible code spaghetti and takes about a hundred lines of said electronic pasta to do what you can hand-code in one. it just happens to be slightly less spaghetti-like than the code generated by golive!

whatever the differences between the latest iterations of these two old war-horses, it hardly matters. i'm sure both do what they do equally as well and you should use whichever one [or one of the competitors] you feel most comfortable with. at the end of the day real web designers hand-code anyway!

Just in passing, I am VERY glad to see that Adobe has not (paprently) shelved this application (like they did the venerable FreeHand). I'd love to upgrade, and to believe that Adobe will put serious money behind updating and maintaing - not to mention inproving - this application.

I think that it should be obvious that Adobe needs to make this commitment overtly, and publicly, to reassure dedicated Apple users (who feel that they've had a boot heel ground in their creative faces over the last couple of years) that they're not just milking this application for a few million more in Dreamweaver R&D money.

We're pulling for you Adobe, just let us know we're still written into your company's future, and you'll have my bucks.

Hoepful...

Golive is so far ahead of other apps of its ilk, I was perturbed to see only dreamweaver in the CS3 releases. Now that 9 is here, Adobe has redeemed itself in my eyes. Make no mistake: this is a pro web design app. It's not for the faint of heart, but once you start using it, and mastering it, you'll be hard-pressed to go back to anything else on the market. The secret is not in what you can do with it, but the power under its hood to do the things you want.

I love Adobe GoLive. I've been a user since it was GoLive Cyberstudio and I'm actually surprised to see any upgrade after CS3 was released. That said, even with this upgrade, it's quite apparent GoLive isn't long for this world -- despite Adobe's claims --and Adobe's trying very hard to get people to switch to Dreamweaver if you read info at http://www.adobe.com/products/golive/. I think of GoLive less like Freehand -- which Adobe never did one thing with -- but more like PageMaker, which it did modestly upgrade a few times before relegating it to the dustbin.

While not a fan of Dreamweaver, I can see the writing's on the wall for me to either adapt to DW or become a 2nd class web developer.

I want to warn you about GoLive -- it is the most frustrating, least reliable, most crash-prone app I have used since switching to OS X. GoLive CS2 crashes regularly for me several times a day, and has even managed to crash WHILE SAVING A VERY IMPORTANT FILE, which wiped out an entire day's work for me, causing me to redo it all. Bottom line, Adobe does not deserve your money for this application, which they clearly dislike within the company (when you make a bug report, it's interesting to note that it's called GoLive, not Adobe GoLive). Sadly, the only thing to do is go to Dreamweaver...but that's not an option for me since its interface is not something I'm willing to use.

My distaste for Adobe is so great because of their crap with CS2 -- from the activation problems to not recognizing an upgrade of Photoshop (stand alone) when coming from the full suite set -- that I would willingly jump ship to just about any other product -- but opps! There are almost no other products anymore, since no company can stand against Photoshop, Illustrator, and so on (not even Macromedia). Bottom line, the actions of Adobe with CS2 (principally GoLive, since I rely on it so much) have robbed me of much of the joy that is my right as a Mac user.

That sounds very unusual. Have you ever tried trashing the preferences? Or do you have to many actions installed or some fancy extensions?

what kind of idiot works all day on a file, without saving it until the end?

it probably crashed because your cache file(s) got too big from not saving periodically. has nothing to do with the app itself.

GoLive is a bloated sloth. FreewayPro is by far the most user friendly web app available.
