2.0 out of 5 stars Going Downhill June 13, 2004
By A Customer
I have been using Macromedia Products since version 2 of Dreamweaver. I have a thorough knowledge of Dreamweaver and Fireworks. I have a bit less of Flash yet I do use it from time to time to create flash elements in sites that are primarily driven by html or xhtml code. I don't use Freehand because I think it is perhaps the most poorly implemented of all illustration programs bar none. I have always hoped that Macromedia would take Freehand seriously... and till this day I am still hoping.
Regarding the software...
Dreamweaver is by far the most popular web development software on the planet. In fact it has more users than all other web development platforms combined. This is a definite strength since you are able to find a tremendous amount of help around the Internet and in book stores.
Dreamweaver is still very good at what it does, however it has gone downhill with this most recent release (yes, I have installed the newest updater which does improve the software to a degree). The problems with the software are many. Macromedia has sacrificed a nice usable and professional interface for this 'flowery' looking gradient mess. Oh... it's pretty alright. The problem is I'm trying to get work done! The previous versions of the Studio have a much more professional interface. The program seems taxing to the system no matter how powerful your processor or how much ram you have. It also seems to have screen redraw issues. This is especially true when designing forms. Why that is... I have no idea. The way the program handles CSS is quirky at best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Box tools to take Control of the Internet! November 28, 2003
For the Content creator who wants to reach users using tools that present rich media and content across the Internet, Studio MX 2004 is an exceptional Solution. Tools such as Flash MX 2004 present rich dynamic content in interactive ways, which makes information more lively and interesting to the audience.Features include adding effects to the timeline, making it possible to add interactions such as Blur, Drop Shadow, explode and many more. Dreamweaver MX 2004 focuses on making HTML code more stable and reliable while producing powerful webpages. To create a consistent HTML Style, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) comes to the rescue and to me is considered one of the central elements that make Dreamweaver MX 2004 powerful. The ability to designate the look of a web page and define the contents of a web page. So CSS adds to the power of this web editing tool allowing you to create very stable websites. Fireworks MX 2004 adds incremental improvements that only improve upon its ability to provide significant performance to web graphics, the interface is more intuitive and takes a more integrated approach with the other MX 2004 applications. Freehand MX is an essential part of the suite which provides the creation of content that seamlessly integrates with other MX 2004 applications, for Print and publishing easily to the Web. Overall, this suite offers a set of powerful applications that presents a deep learning curve. But experienced users who want to take the Web and show its full potential, Studio MX 2004 provides the answer to the Web Developers questions. For beginners to Web Design, who might want to take a shorter route to website creation and management, Macromedia offers an excellent alternative solution called Contribute 2.0. Its ease of use and intuitiveness, makes it an absolute choice for the beginner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Needs Some Improvement November 7, 2003
This product is definitely better than the previous versions and Macromedia Studio has proved itself to be one of the best web designing software tools on the market. Although this is a pretty handy product for web designers, it still needs improvement. For example, dreamweaver puts all those nasty tags that will be very difficult to debug later on if you get into problems with Mac Computers (Especially Mac IE). Also the price is pretty high although you can get a student version for cheap. Photoshop is still better than Macromedia's products for image processing. So should you buy or upgrade to this product? Upgrade yes, buy only if your company pays for it or if you don't want to spend too much time designing websites and don't care what they look like in Mac computers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Out There! April 5, 2004
If you are an amateur or professional web designer, don't already have Studio MX and are thinking of moving over from competing Web design packages or bundles from other vendors, buy it. Now. You won't regret it. Dreamweaver MX 2004 is the best web site editor available, and Flash MX 2004 is the best Flash graphics creation package available - though this isn't surprising since the Flash format was created by Macromedia.
Macromedia unleashes its MX2004 product suite of upgrades. And its a home run. The new Flash improvements, especially for Flash MX2004 Pro edition are great additions - considerably advancing Flash as a database server aware application viable for delivery of cross-platform, rich media experiences. Dreamweaver 2004 & Cold Fusion 6.1 are improvements while Fireworks 2004 and Freehand 2004 offer only mimimal improvements relative to the competition. But it is still worth the price tag, especially when considering the trash HTML other applications add to web pages. Nothing out there, in the way of suites, can do what this product does. Nothing. Your web pages and sites will reflect the quality and commitment all designers strive for.
