    Hi does anyone think that Apple wil create a professional version for web developing. I mean it seems they're heavily invested in the web developing world and with html5 around the corner an all. Not to mention, I dont want to use dreamweaver as it doesnt seem to be intuitive (at least to me) and rapidweaver is very nice and very easy to use, except missing a lot of features, even with 3rd party plugins, there is a lot left to be desired.

    Should I be holding my breath for an iWeb pro sort of app? what do you all think?

    thnx

    I don't think they will release a second line of iWeb. They may just expand the feature set of iWeb, and perhaps add a few advanced features.

    The concept of a "Pro" iWeb makes me chuckle. People who do that sort of thing already know how to use the various existing "pro" web development/web design tools to do their job, and I highly doubt an Apple foray into that arena would see much success.

    I completely agree with you. iWeb is for making your personal website, if you want to take the easy route and not make one from scratch using a powerful tool such as Dreamweaver. I wouldn't say that Dreamweaver is unintuitive... it's beginning to show its age but it is relatively straightforward to use.

    If you're looking for Apple-inspired design, check out Coda. There isn't drag-and-drop simplicity, but it's a wonderful tool for developing a site if you can code.
