    Looks a good alternative to Dreamweaver, just a shame its only for the windows format and not Mac.

    A little share here for anyone out there that uses Mac. Its a cool piece of software called ‘ espresso’ (http://macrabbit.com/espresso/) its a paid software but you can download a free trial.
    It has a cleaner look to it then Dreamweaver and it doesn’t help you as much with the coding so in the long run your coding skills will improve.

    Just thought i would share with the people here.
