  1. macrumors newbie

    Oct 26, 2003
    Hi all,
    I just got Back to Mac after 7 exhausting years with several PCs. I've got a G5, loving it, but there is a big learning curve for me.

    My personal web site has a lot of articles and a fair amount of photos. I used Netscape Composer, mostly, and an FTP application that Earthlink had provided me to manage my files. It needs a lot of work and updating...

    I was hoping that my new G5 would have some freebie software included to let me do some web site tweaking, but if it's here, I am not seeing it.

    What do you recommend? I prefer a WSYWYG editor that allows me to edit the code when I need to. And I need something to upload files with--simple and easy would be good.

    Your help appreciated!

    Try Dreamweaver. It's pretty solid. If you want to go for straight code, look at BBEdit.

    second that. do a search on this topic in the forums and you'll find a lot of threads about HTML editors/dreamweaver/etc. here's a recent one:


    in a nutshell: dreamweaver does a very nice job of writing code for you, but also lets you get under the hood and do everything from minor tweaks to major hand-coding. it also has a built-in ftp manager, although that part isn't as full-featured as fetch or fugu, for instance. but good enough to upload pages & files, if that's all you're doing.

    you can use Mozilla Composer which should be similar to the Netscape one. There is a OS X version
