ABANDONWARE: Freeway Pro, and all other software by the developer Softpress, is now discontinued. The company has shut down entirely. The download links no longer work. Here is the final message from the developer's website: "To all our friends, partners and customers: "The end of Softpress Systems Ltd. has come. It has become clear that our prospects, both in terms of current revenue and new product development, are insufficient to sustain the company as a viable entity going forward. "It is with great sadness that we have made this decision; Softpress has been a part of our lives for over two decades. The challenges that we have overcome, the friendships we have found, and the daily efforts we have shared as a team, have defined much of our lives since 1993. Some of our team have been “on duty” here at Softpress Towers since the beginning. "We will do our best to ensure that users can get community support in the short term through FreewayTalk, though there are no plans to further develop our products at this time. Customer downloads will continue to be available from their respective links below and the Softpress KnowledgeBase is still active. "We wish we could do more. Who knows what comes next? "Thank you for your support over these many years. "For the whole of the Softpress Team, "Richard Logan and Joe Billings"

After 20+ yrs I will miss Freeway and the helpful staff at Softpress. It was only when I went to the Softpress site for info that I discovered that they had stopped trading. I expect I will have too eventually find a new website maker but Freeway will do for a while. Perhaps a buyer will be found and the brand revitalised and returned to the market. It is a pity that the links left on the Softpress site (http://www.softpress.com/) do not work because they contained useful info.

Freeway Pro is an old fashion software. The code is not clean and doesn't pass W3C tests, it is lacking of modern features. It was good for people who doesn't know how to code when there weren't alternatives, nowaday for less I'd better go with softwares like Flux or Sparkle that are more intuitive, more powerful and also less expensive. Flux can edit directly websites remotely, CSS animation, it manages JQuery easily. Sparkle is more for Freeway Express that doesn't even provide a built it HTML export feature! It handles Google Maps as a built-in feature. Freeway is just an old fashion way that haven't evolved, was great years ago, now it's time to move to something new and more modern.

I have used Freeway from the very beginning (discovered it around 1998 from a Computer Arts mag CD). I have found support responsive and helpful and were willing to walk me through difficult problems either due to my lack of experience or being more old school. I have tried many other web creation apps and have always gone back to Freeway. I applaud the latest version and I am presently using BackDraft to augment my responsive design projects. It is user friendly and Softpress does respond to issues unlike other web apps I have tried who lead you to user forums rather than direct support. Obviously it will not appeal to everyone. Unfortunately some comments and reviews left here seem to be more trollish than factual and it seems some folk have real issues with objective civil communication. Love it or leave it remember it's just your opinion. Lastly, I do not have to spend hours sorting out irregularities caused by poorly generated code, it is not perfect but what is. Keep up the good work Softpress!

Freeway Pro is not even close to user-friendly. The templates are not useful for most purposes and tweaking them is cumbersome. Additional templates are costly. If you are seeking an iWeb substitute – Freeway Pro is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Check their generated web pages for W3C compliance and weep.

Freeway works as it's supposed to, but usages is FAR too cumbersome. Creating minor things like buttons seems is quite a chore. There are a few templates available, but modifying them for my own needs is a challenge. There are other templates available from Freeway's developer, but they cost even MORE. To make Freeway usable for the casual user, it should come with a variety of templates that are easy to use.

Freeway Pro is an ok application, but I consider it utterly obsolete and irrelevant. WYSWYG is one of Freeway Pro's selling points, but the thing is that web is not WYSWYG. Gone are the days of web design based on print design mindset, which this software is based on. Web is about usefulness, mobile access (not just front end, but also updating process as well) and social media. The whole thing is becoming more like a web app development, and Freeway Pro doesn't address these needs much at all. If I just want to get something up and running fast and easy with minimum fuss, online services such as Squarespace.com, Weebly.com, WordPress.com are far more suitable for such scenario and they still offer CMS and social capability right out of the box, which Freeway Pro doesn't. And then, if I want more than that, open source CMS platform such as self-hosted WordPress and Concrete5 would give me the power to do all kinds of custom work while also keeping me from reinventing the wheel via plug-ins and premium themes, none of which Freeway Pro can match. In general, I believe that the era of Mac web site generator such as Freeway Pro, iWeb, Sandvox and Rapidweaver has come and gone, and these apps will go the way of the dinosaurs in a few years. It’s no reflection on the quality of work and fine folks at Softpress. But for someone who follows the current trend in web site design practice at all levels, Freeway Pro just doesn’t make sense anymore.

I began using FW in 2003 but had to dump it several years ago. It's an antique if you are into marketing and making money. It can't compete with the many 1,000's of options available in wordpress … i.e. setting up tracking - sales funnels - product delivery - squeeze & landing pages on the fly - split testing them - cloaking - redirects and SEO plugins that will run circles around FW. I could go on and on. It just depends on what you want to accomplish.

I transitioned from Adobe Muse to Freeway, as I got fed up with paying the subscription price. I am sure Freeway was the inspiration for Muse, very similar pieces of software. I actually prefer Freeway: it seems more mature, more responsive and with better documentation. It works great. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is useful for the finer control of a website, and Freeway provides for customizing each element with code. I was worried about integrating webfonts, but it only took a couple of minutes, and not restricted to the "Adobe" ones. The manual is 500 pages, and does require looking into at times, something that I am not accustomed to doing with modern software.

"With it's user-oriented drag-and-drop interface, Freeway Pro helps you piece together the website of your dreams" I do not agree. With Freeway Pro you still have to master some coding skills. I played with it until I discovered Rapidweaver. Now that is 'drag-and-drop' to make great websites without any need of html, php, .. knowledge. FP is a good website designer tool but its most certainly not easy as the devs would like you to believe it is.

Whilst it is a fairly decent piece of software, I find that I don't experiment with layouts and designs because of the one level of undo. If I want to try out an idea I need to do a Save As in case I need to go back to my original design. All the new features in v6 are nice, but honestly, isn't about time you added more levels of undo?

Aaaaccckkk!!! I just had to reboot my brain. Now we're at Freeway 6, and there is STILL only one level of undo! It is utterly barbaric, and unconscionable for an application that is otherwise such a useful tool. Softpress's persistent failure to include multiple undo is incomprehensible.
