I use Sea Monkey for writing and editing web pages primarily, and while it lacks the functionality of Dreamweaver, the price is right! It beats Amaya, Blue Griffon and Kompozer, which (alas!) has been abandoned.

Whoa! Still trying to get this review right!
1. By commenting on the shareware developers, I don't want to dismiss the work done by the Mozilla community pro bono on SeaMonkey. It's awesome!
2. I help an emerita professor (pro bono) with her Mac problems. This extraordinary woman is still writing books in her eighties! Anyway, she has used Netscape Navigator since its inception, so in order to ease her into "the modern age" I segued her into the SeaMonkey platform. This has proved "just what the doctor ordered" for her and has kept things relatively simple for me.

Accidentally I overrated SeaMonkey in my last post.

I use SeaMonkey to create and edit a number of websites. One reason is that I'm cheap and don't want to pay a bunch of money for a commercial or shareware app to do these tasks. Yet I would be happy to plunk my money down if I could be assured that they could give me a better user experience. Having tried trial versions of a number of them, I'm still not convinced that they would.
I used to own Dreamweaver, and while I miss may of its features, I can't justify it expense. (Am still trying to get my employer to buy be a copy. So far no luck.)
To give credit to those who do create web design apps for the shareware market: I admire what you're doing and would love to choose your product .Yet at this point I'm not sure which one would be best for my uses.

I purchased Norton AntiVirus for Mac 9.0 from buy.com on 4/12/05. On 4/28/05 it became obsolete with the release of MacOS 10.4. Symantec released NAV 10.0 on 5/12/05 to be compatible with MacOS 10.4.
I tried contacting Symantec customer support by email beginning 5/12/05 to to see about an upgrade from 9.0 to 10.0. I received no response. Finally I reached a customer service rep in Bombay, India, by phone on 5/31/05 who said that because I had not purchased NAV 9.0 from Symantec directly I would have to pay for the upgrade.
This is, of course, an outrageous policy and the reason why American business is steadily declining. I urge anyone who is considering buying a Symantec product to look for an alternative product from another company.

Since writing this original note, and after having sent a letter of complaint to Symantec CEO John W. Thompson, I received a phone call from a service rep in Oregon (not India) offering a free upgrade to NAV 10, which I accepted. So far NAV 10 seems to be running fine.
It's too bad that one has to jump through so many hoops to get service satisfaction. But I guess that's the way business operates in the 21st century global economy....
