Web Development Tool: Dreamweaver
Dreamweaver has truly been weaving dreams throughout the Internet for years. Created by Macromedia and now owned by Adobe, Dreamweaver is among the best web building programs for beginners wanting to learn web design.
As a web development tool, Dreamweaver is practical, intuitive and a favorite among beginner web designers. Like all programs, however, it has some quirks that may work against your final product. Some criticize that Dreamweaver produces extra HTML code and pages with file sizes that are bigger and more complex, causing slow load time and may perform poorly in some browsers. This is especially true when created table-based layouts.
Dreamweaver tutorials are available for free download. Buying a good book on Dreamweaver can’t hurt and downloading the program for a 30 day trial period can always give the web designer the opportunity to see if its what he or she is looking for.
