I've always liked Dreamweaver. I've made a few websites for school, but nothing professional. :D

I only have used it on my PPC Mac, so I'm not sure how the Intel performance is.

UPDATE: The Intel performance is terrible. Until Adobe makes Dreamweaver universal, I'm going to be using iWeb or something.

Dreamweaver is a good app but is a little bloated for my tastes. When doing what little CSS I know, I usually use a text editor.

I would also highly recommend Style Master for CSS work in OS X (there's a Windows version too!): http://www.westciv.com/style_master/

It has a ton of CSS tutorials and resources that are handy for even the experts. I don't think it's universal yet, though.

You don't need any fancy editor for coding xhtml/css if you know what you're doing. Use BBEdit or TextWrangler. They suit my needs just nicely.

If you require FTP, get Transmit by Panic, or Cyberduck which is free (it intergrates well with BBEdit/TextWrangler.)

Graphics? Photoshop.

Basically, same as in Windows.. not too much of a change.

Adobe + Mactel systems = bad performance compared to current PPC systems because of Rosetta

agreed with A Nonny Moose. until adobe/macromedia get on the ball in becomming unibin its going to be a little slow but, if you dont yous filters alot, like me, it runs fine. since there is no port of swishmax on mac and it dosent work in wine, i do most of my webdesigning in xp.

flash 8 professional runs faster than mx 2004 in OSx86 even though its still PPC only. -dont install flash player tho!-

BTW- ignorantcow, i love the new macvidia skin!!

I switched over to Mac OS X86 four weeks ago and didn't have used my Windows since them.
I'm planning and developing internet portals and use Java/JSP as my main technique. It took me only a half of a day to install all server-apps, database and my prefered development platform (Eclipse 3.2m4 works fine with MacOS) and to port my projects. Meanwhile I released two projects and plan to release my last project next week.

The only thing I miss is Photoshop, I've done all artwork with photoshop CS on my PC and currently I'm using the CS trial. Its a lot slower than on my PC, but at least, it works. I'll have a look to some alternative products until Adobe releases an Universal.

I like skEdit better than BBedit or Textwrangler, specially if you are on PHP. On the other hand, Dreamweaver still the best I think. I learned HTML using notepad and an oldie called ACE Html, and I did a lot of sites that way. But since I tried the 1.0 beta version of DW (back in 1998 I think) it's been my favorite. No matter how much you master code, it's always useful to have the ability to build complex structures in a visual environment. However, I agree that latest versions have become more and more overbloated.

I like Dreamweaver, but I agree it's a bit bloated. I really like the contextual popups while you are typing, but I have found that many people don't like it. The Macromedia Studio 8 software is a huge improvement over the previous versions in my opinion. Dreamweaver is a lot of standards compliant, and they fixed a lot of the stability issues I had with the previous version. I rarely use the design view to edit my pages. I do 99% of the work by hand coding, and I use the design view sometimes for quickly changing some text.

Now if you want a speedy, minimalistic app that's really powerful, I highly suggest BBEdit. There is a universal version out also. BBEdit is not freeware, and is only available on the Mac platform. With BBEdit, you have to code everything, but that is the way you should do it anyway.

I find coding sites in Smultron is perfect for me. I dabble in CSS, PHP, ASP, XML & good ole html, all of which I have worked on in Smultron.

If you really must have a wysiwyg editor than Dreamweaver is excellent, until adobe screws it up that is.

I run a professional web agency

We've in the past been using Dreamweaver & Topstyle (no mac equiv) for development. Now however we are moving more towards development in TextMate on OSX (both on G5 & on Intel), and we also make use of ZEND studio

i've just recently created a MacBox out of an old PC I had around ... it runs TextMate well (a little slow) .. but yeah!

you have to remember that Photoshop and such like are not universal apps yet and so run through emulation. This will always be slower

Apparently Adobe will not be releasing Universal version of photoshop anytime soon. We will probably have to wait to CS3 ... which will be a while as this will be the first release of the new integrated Macromedia/Adobe applications

So, the problem can be by it causes of the emulation and no it causes for it lack of the an graphic chip?
