One of the main goals of the Adobe GoLive 5.0 design process was to simplify the work of developers and graphic designers so they can produce high quality websites faster than ever. This goal has been perfectly reached and GoLive 5.0 is probably the best web-design software weíve seen yet. Its unique features like the tag viewing mode and the timeline editor for DHTML & QuickTime objects turn this software into an exceptional and robust one. Itís a major update that contains many new features thatíll arouse GoLive 4.0 users to pickup this new upgrade immediately.
