I've been using the Dreamweaver CS4 beta for almost 5 months now and find that it fits my work style very nicely. There are some obvious changes like that it now looks more like Adobe's other programs. It's not so much the similarity of looks in the interface that helps as that the working panes and panels have been integrated into a working whole on the Mac in the same way as Windows. Since I use both platforms that's nice. Since the workspace is pretty customizable and since you can save your workspaces, I can imagine that experienced developers will end up having some pretty individualized views. I originally thought that it might take some time to learn the new workspace but it's so logically designed that it seems natural.

If you hand code at all you'll really appreciate the new features. Most of my design work now is focused around building themes and templates for Wordpress and Drupal. Before CS 4 I was hand coding the sites and only used Dreamweaver as a site management tool for static sites. That is to say, not that much. There are a few new features that have changed Dreamweaver from just another arrow in my quiver to my main go to program, Live View and Related files are the two that are getting the most press. They're great but there are some others.

Live View displays a real time look at how the page displays in a WebKit browser. Since Dreamweaver now supports side by side views, on a 20" or larger monitor that allows for simultaneous windows showing the code and the results. I love that.

What makes it even more useful is the Related Files feature. Click on a server side page, like a main CMS template file and Dreamweaver will automatically offer a set of tabs for related server side files, CSS or JavaScript.

I've just upgraded from Dreamweaver 8 to the Adobe CS4 version.

First let me say that all of the wonderful reviews for Dreamweaver CS4 are true - it's just about the best product that money can buy to edit and develop websites. If you want to know why this is a good program go read those reviews - they are accurate. One of my job-titles involves web site design - I've been doing this since the mid 1990's so I've used most of the commercial programs out there at one time or another and the Dreamweaver line of software is a solid product that enables you to build wonderful creations ... BUT:

Some of the 1 star reviews are spot on too - this is not a product for beginners because of one major flaw - documentation. Basically Adobe expect that you'll always have an Internet connection to read the documentation - THERE IS NO MANUAL SUPPLIED WITH THE SOFTWARE (not even a PDF version) and the on-line videos assume that you can hear ... so if you're deaf - this is a very unfriendly product. There is a printed manual - but that will cost you another $50 - you have to buy the documentation separately. On the plus side - there are a large number of "How To" books and web sites available that fill this gap - but Adobe ... well, let's just say that documentation's not their strongest feature.

On the other hand - if you're a long time Dreamweaver user - upgrade, it's magic! You'll find that overall Adobe haven't messed it up too much - it works much the same way as the Macromedia versions did and the upgrade pulls in your old configuration quite nicely. CSS support is much improved - and the "live" view is very helpful. There's no big leap here, they've just made things work better.

Dreamweaver combines the simplicity and speed of a visual editor with the precision of a code view. You can develop your websites fast, and still also have the option of tweaking the code to meet your exact wishes.

Trained developers will appreciate the efficiency of getting basic tasks done automatically. Hobbyists and students will appreciate the help, and the opportunity to learn.

Since it's from Adobe, it works well and has plenty of support.

I use Dreamweaver to update my website and to develop my online course, but you can use it for all your coding tasks, from the most basic to the professional. It's easy enough for beginners to use, without the clunkiness of authoring programs designed to be foolproof.

I can't imagine a better choice.

I've said it often, so one more time won't mater: programmers don't know what an end user is. Dreamweacver MX (2002) was about my limit for learning software. CS4 is for geeks and PhDs, and I've got neither to help. The "documentation" is nonexistent of course, so you'll need two computers or a split screen. If you've got an old web site -- as I have -- this program makes it more difficult to change, and it's probably easier to start from scratch. If only they would tell you how.

The videos that are online or on the disk are ridiculous. Two people are sitting at a computer, talking at 60 mph, and making no sense whatsoever. It's a coffee klatch between two geeks speaking ... geek.

If you're going to buy this program, make sure that you have someone who can help guide you and answer even the simplest questions. Like...where did the font color box go on the Properties Box and why do all my forms in CS4 now look different on four out of six browsers (as usual IE) than when I used MX?

And, no, the Dummies books don't work either.

I get the distinct feeling that Adobe wants to keep the independent programmers busy ... if you can find any who can actually understand what YOU need and what YOU do.
