I am fed up of Dreamweaver’s crap. I only ever use the code view; the ‘Design view’ is utterly useless as it displays even a simple page as garbage, and the ‘Live’ view is too slow. It doesn’t even check spelling as you type. The FTP is slow and buggy. Synching takes forever. The UI is too bloated. Collaboration tools are a joke.
I am trying out the 14–day trial of Coda; if all goes well, I will use this for all my work.
It has a beautiful UI; just enough complexity but nothing useless. There is a great live view that works with your server to even show server-side includes. Spelling as you type. It’s very Mac-like, and relatively cheap too—I’m loving it so far!
