Dreamweaver is dead to me.

Well, that didn’t last long. I uninstalled Dreamweaver CS3. What a piece of garbage! Man, what the hell happened here? Macromedia (Adobe) bought a brilliant program from Nick Bradbury called Homesite. Then they proceeded to ignore Homesite and sue anyone who copied it’s innovative design. They they made Dreamweaver which systematically eliminated every single good feature from Homesite. The advanced find/replace sucks. Takes 3x longer to do simple tasks. They got rid of the split view for the folders so I can’t see anything. They added a million features that I will never use. Its bloated and sucks up ram. The install process refused to install unless Internet Explorer, Firefox and Outlook were closed. Then it took 20 minutes to install. And it pulled the same garbage to uninstall.

I am never, ever installing Dreamweaver again. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me 4 times, shame on me.

My god, Adobe has now killed two of the best programs I have used in the last 10 years. ImageReady and Homesite. Boo to Adobe. Booooo!

I am still using HTMLPad as my primary editor. It’s pretty good. Maybe 1-2 little grievances, but overall the best I have found.
