Dreamweaver CS or Creative Cloud

Dreamweaver has been around since the mid '90s, and is the industry standard app for creating websites visually. Dreamweaver makes designing a website about as easy as it can be, while still offering more experienced users access to the source code for finer control. Over the years, Dreamweaver has added many features such as the ability to work with dynamic data, good CSS support, better integration with Photoshop and Fireworks and more.
