Review

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 is a very popular web authoring and editing tool. It has been around for a long time and it always keeps on getting better. Back in the day, Dreamweaver was the most popular HTML coding app that you could buy. Nowadays, it is still an application that can hold its ground and let you create a website from the ground-up in little to no time. As you may know, Dreamweaver lets you edit HTML code directly, or you can create a web page from a document or by writing text and adding objects just like you would on Microsoft Word.

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 has support for CSS3 and HTML5. It has many tools that allow you to create interactive sites and great-looking pages.

There are basically three modes in which you can start working on a project: code, split and design. In code, you do everything by coding in HTML and the many other coding languages that are supported. In split mode, you see results as you code, and in design, you do everything by hand. You can add text, images, videos, etc. There are tons of tools that help you in every step of project. I particularly like the multiscreen preview panels. This feature allows you to preview what a project will look like on a phone, tablet or computer. You can even assign specific CSS files to each of those devices so that they will be loaded instead of the regular design of the project.

Shortly speaking, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 is an application that takes a lot of time to master. But it gives you all the tools that you could possibly need to create quality projects. You can download a fully-functional trial that you can use for 30 days before you have to purchase.
