I've tried to download the silly thing some half dozen times, with Safari and with Firefox, and I can never get a full download. I'll pass on it!<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

i had to fiddle with trying again about 4 times, but it worked. <br><br>i opened it up and tried a few things out, but the beta expires in less than 2 weeks. i doubt i have much time to give the whole run through. plus, this version doesn't work with .Mac yet, so???<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
i barely played with sandvox. i have never played with rapidweaver; however, my impression of these apps is that they are similar to Pages versus MS Word (dreamweaver). i have pages, but i also have Word and i find that Word is just a better app for my needs. Pages would be good if i wanted to do some of the things offered by their templates, but doesn't really excel beyond that. is that similar to what rapidweaver and sandvox offer? i am just curious.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
I have been using Rapidweaver for about six months, and I love it. You can make a stylish, functional webpage in about ten minutes. Yet, with only a little knowledge of css you can really customize the site to your own choosing. Its got preset abilities for blogging, photo display, etc. too.<br><br>I've always felt that apps like Dreamweaver and GoLive had too steep of a learning curve to make a good-looking webpage (notice the emphasis on good, anyone can put together a POS that doesn't meet standards). I like that someone with more ability can make a decent template, and then with WYSIWYG tools I can customize it.<br><br>I'm not sure I see the analogy with Pages and Word, but then again, I use Pages on a daily basis and not Word, and I don't use the premade templates. My word processing needs consist of short documents with small graphics (now I am out of research its almost all syllabi, schedules, other teaching documents) and for that Pages is much nicer, IMO. I only open Word now when someone sends me a .doc file.<br><br>
