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?

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"

Hi thanks for sharing this note. Is this common for small developers? I don't purchase software often, and only mostly from big name companies. If a developer is no longer in business, what should I expect to happen to software support and upgrades?

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.

This is simpy not true. Freeway coding passes W3C tests without any problem. If you want to promote other software, please do it in fair way, based on true facts.

Hey Forn -- the demo websites produced on Freeway Pro do NOT pass the W3C compliance tests. I've checked.

Freeway Pro is a convoluted, expensive mess that produces sub-par, non-compliant code. Its day has passed.

BTW -- iWeb was deprecated over four years ago, and my iWeb-produced websites still pass W3C with flying colors.

Softpress have just announced that they have decided to close down. It seems they feel future operations are no longer sustainable. https://www.softpress.com

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.

Simply NOT TRUE. As a long term user I can confirm that Freeway websites are full W3C compatible. If you are seeking an intuitive way to design and create your own websites – Freeway Pro is a good choice. Your "review" is pure polemic.

For an iWeb alternative I recommend Sparkle (http://sparkle.cx). Modern and fully responsive its a great app and the next version is gonna be even better (Beta testing 1.2 at the moment)

NONE of the Freeway Pro examples passed the W3C Validator -- NONE. Before you hail 'not true' you should do your homework.

Freeway Pro is a buggy, convoluted offering that after years, still contains major UI and operational flaws – AND it burps out NON-COMPLIANT CODE at a high price.

You obviously are a fan – don't be confused by REAL FLAWS or verifiable facts.
