Conclusion: Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 is far away the world?s most powerful Web editor, though it's a little rougher around the edges than its admittedly less-capable, Windows-only rival, Microsoft Expression Web.
Pros: Built-in support for building browser-based apps for phones and tablets in addition to traditional websites. GUI tools for every major technology currently used on the Web. ?Live? displays and multiscreen previews make debugging easier than ever. Works identically under Windows and OS X.
Cons: Complex interface that sometimes requires editing in raw code. Not easy to build in alternatives to Flash for Flash-blocking platforms like iOS.
