About

Dreamweaver is a combination of an IDE for PHP, ASP, ColdFusion and a WYSIWYG HTML/CSS editor. Additionally, it allows non-programmers to integrate several basic server-side scripting functions into their pages but often draws criticism for producing bloated code. Recent versions of Dreamweaver come bundled with an AJAX library (Spry) that features several pre-made widgets and other behaviors.

Adobe Dreamweaver (formerly Macromedia Dreamweaver) is a proprietary web development application originally created by Macromedia. It is now developed by Adobe Systems, which acquired Macromedia in 2005.
