How long will iWeb be usable?

Hello all,

I'm currently using iWeb and have really liked it since its introduction five years ago.

I was saddened when Apple stopped development of it, but thankful that it will still work.

I was wondering how long you all think iWeb will be usable? In other words, when will new computers quit being able to run the program itself. Will it be 5 years or 10 years or what?

Just wondering, so I'll know how much time I have to start looking for a replacement!

Thanks!

Really?

You think within a year the newest computers won't run iWeb?

While there's a possibility it won't work properly in Mountain Lion, I think the poster you quoted just didn't have any clue what they were talking about (after all, they called iWeb a "service" instead of an app).

You know, I may be really stupid, but I didn't even think about the possibility of it not working in Mountain Lion. I was looking past that, but you gave me something to think about!

iWeb in the afterlife

I wonder if Apple might unveil a complete replacement for iWeb. I like iWeb and used it a lot, but it has some real structural issues. Rather than fix it, maybe they will replace it.

I suspect the app will work for a while. I still use it for a site and like it. I probably will migrate to another direction at some point.

Now that would be awesome, as long as it'd be possible to migrate pages from iWeb!

Still hoping, especially since Adobe Flux so far seems to be pretty poorly done.

I have 3 websites still left in iWeb, looking to port them over at some stage, but not right now. I really hope that it doesn't get broken in ML, because I really want it!

Do any of you guys have 10.7.4 installed yet? Any issues?

Yeah I've got it and no problems so far. Had it for a while now.

If iWeb does get abandoned, keep an eye on CoffeeCup.com

They create some pretty awesome WYSIWYG web editing tools for Windows and have started to port across/introduce Mac equivalents.

Thanks!
