  • Dreamweaver slows me down too

    Posted on January 12th, 2010 phpguru No comments

    This blog is great. Tons of people expressing the same thing I’ve been feeling lately… Dreamweaver is just slow.

    I recently switched from Dreamweaver CS3 on Windows (running under Bootcamp on a Macbook Pro) to Dreamweaver CS4 running under Snow Leopard. I also upgraded from 2GB to 4GB of RAM. Dreamweaver CS4 is almost unusable in Design mode, on longer documents. Maybe I have to run disk utility or something, but sheesh.

    I’ve enjoyed using Dreamweaver for many years, but why is it that as computers get faster and faster, Adobe software gets slower and slower?

    As I’ve pointed out before, Adobe makes some of the most expensive software out there. Why doesn’t it work better?
