Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, a hybrid based Web development software application that was originally developed and distributed by Macromedia. It was acquired by Adobe in 2005, and it is available for both the Mac and Windows operating systems.
As a hybrid, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 is both a WYSIWYG editor that allows you to see the results of what you are developing before having to publish to your Web site and a code-based editor that lets you hand code your sites as well. This lets less experienced developers work without having extensive coding skills as well as more experienced developers fully hand-code. It doesn’t stop there; it also gives developers the tools to create professional grade Web sites as well. Please visit Adobe for complete system requirements.
