I think Adobe Dreamweaver is the best software you can find for writing codes. You can customize your website and choose the best for it, watching it during your modifications to the code. In fact, as you can see, it has got two sides: the first one is used for writing your codes, the other one is used for the preview. As a graphic designer, it happened to me to use it for some projects of mine, to create the website for some clients, and I have to say it's very easy and complete. I'm not a developer, so at first, I was worried I couldn't learn how to use it, but thanks to some basic tutorial, it's been very helpful to learn Dreamweaver and some of its shortcuts, so I totally recommend it if you are a beginner.Now I use Adobe Dreamweaver every time I have to create websites, all in short timelines.

Pros :

  • If you are a beginner in Web Design, I totally recommend Adobe Dreamweaver.
  • You can find a lot of tutorials online, and once you learn the codes, it's very easy to use, mostly thanks to the side of the preview, to watch the modifications at the same time.
  • This software has HTML and CSS support for your websites
  • It's very fast and it doesn't weigh down your device.
  • You can use a lot of ready templates for your website. You can start with one of them if you want to save some time, and then customize your site the way you prefer. At the same time, you also learn more and more writing codes!


Cons :

  • There aren't so many "cons" for this software.
  • One thing I can say is that sometimes I find the preview not very accurate, so it's tricky to watch the current look of the website.
  • hey can improve the responsive code support.
  • I find Adobe Dreamweaver very expensive, they can lower the price a little bit for professionals.

    Dreamweaver was the way to go 10 years ago, but today with the plethora of Free and Open Source alternatives, this software is struggling to keep up with the competition. The interface has never been updated, an FTP configuration is hidden behind too many click, and all the pre-made built-in code snippets, that should be useful, are just heavy libraries of legacy code confusing if you're a beginner.The only positive thing that this software does is the Live Preview, but also that section looks buggy.Overall this software is behind even compared to Adobe Brackets, the Open Source IDE from the same developers.

    Pros :

    • Integrated with the CC subscription.
    • Good live preview.
    • Good integration with Cordova/Phonegap.

    Cons :

    • Outdated interface hard to understand for a beginner.
    • Outdated snippet codes.
    • Lack of free plugins or extensions.
    • Lack of integrated tracking for updated files.
    • The upload sometimes fails to override the file.
    • Code Hint is not always accurate.
    • The software is heavy and crashes if you have too many files open.
    • The Live Preview heavily affects your source code if you accidentally change the style of an element .

    All put together, this new version of Xara Designer Pro X builds upon the earlier release, and adds more features to deliver a compelling release. A very attractive upgrade pricing option makes this a no-brainer for existing Xara users, and for everyone else, this is a product that certainly needs to be explored closely.

    It’s pretty clear that when it comes to abilities, Dreamweaver is probably the best web design software that you can find. But if you’re not a professional or don’t have serious intentions of creating a website with high expectations, then it’s better to just look for a simpler and easier to use alternative instead.
