    Realmac Software RapidWeaver 4 review

    Web design is a bit of a black art. Anyone armed with a ‘Dummies’ book can knock together a page of HTML that will display in everything from NCSA Mosaic to Safari 3.1, but creating something richer – with navigation, images, dynamically updating sidebars and more – that conforms to XHTML and CSS standards is a much bigger challenge.

    Serif WebPlus X2 review

    One of the biggest traumas of producing any Web site is the constant back and forth to image editors, browsers and FTP sites every time you decide on an alteration. What makes WebPlus a joy to use is its convenience: all that stuff can be done in one window.

    TeamViewer is a tool for viewing and controlling remote desktops. You need to install it on two different computers, either Mac or PC, then enter an ID and password to open two ends of a secure tunnel.

    OrgPlus 7 review: There's no point denying it, at first glance, creating an organisational chart doesn't seem to be the greatest of graphical challenges. Draw one box at the top for the MD, then paste everyone else into their relative departments, right?

    Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 review

    Dreamweaver is a jewel in the crown of Adobe's acquisition of Macromedia. Without doubt the de facto standard of professional web development, it's been streets ahead of Adobe's GoLive application in popularity for years

    Since Adobe's purchase of Macromedia, the web-design community has been waiting for this particular release. As the two design tools almost continuously employed together, Dreamweaver and Photoshop already had a special relationship. Now it's even closer

    NetObjects Fusion 10 review

    8  

    Getting a website to look and act right can cost money, however NetObjects costs a mere £135 (inc. VAT), making it a far more affordable proposition. What's more, because it has been designed with those who simply want to get a website running

    Lesser web authoring tools have been and gone, but NetObjects Fusion keeps ploughing forward. Launched way before Dreamweaver and FrontPage, Fusion has evolved from a code-crunching HTML-authoring tool to a template-based site builders

    Microsoft Expression Web quietly went gold in December 2006. Made available to US customers the same month, UK users had to wait until the end of January. It was worth it, as Microsoft has created a tool that will satisfy a discerning camp of users...

    Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer review

    Microsoft SharePoint Designer may look like FrontPage - which it replaces in Office - but the resemblance is only a little more than skin deep. SharePoint is based on IIS, ASP.NET 2 master pages, web parts, CSS and data source controls

    Think of Quark and you'll think of QuarkXPress. There's a reason for that: for years, Quark has been a one-product company. That's not for the want of trying. Quark has tried numerous times to break out of its page-layout software niche...

    As you'll no doubt realise, Microsoft recently created a whole new user interface paradigm in its ribbon bar, which will form part of Office 2007. DotNetBar 6.1 makes it easy to add similar ribbon bar effects to your own .NET applications...

    CodeRush is no longer supported for the Delphi IDE, but in Castalia 4 it lives on. Devotees mourned when Mark Miller, the creator of CodeRush, moved to Developer Express. CodeRush still exists, but it's now an add-in for Visual Studio.

    Serif made its name by introducing DTP to people who, at that time, couldn't afford PageMaker. With WebPlus, it does the same thing today for people who can't afford Dreamweaver.

    Beauty, so they say, is only skin deep. It's certainly true that the Mac's Aqua user interface has been much admired, but on Windows we're stuck with XP's Fisher-Price style themes, at least until Vista finally arrives.

    Ecommerce. Getting the level correct is a real balancing act, with no perfect solution. At the lowest end of the scale, it's possible to get a store up and running almost immediately, but with no control over the process.

    Look through any list of job ads for web designers and almost all ofthem will ask for Dreamweaver skills. There's a reason for this:Dreamweaver has one of the largest feature-sets of any web design app.
