Dreamweaver CS3 is the latest version of Adobe Dreamweaver. This is

the most popular Web design program among professional Web

designers and the latest version adds enhancements to CSS support

and a new Spry Framework that makes it easier to create AJAX

features with Dreamweaver.

Dreamweaver 8 was the version prior to CS3. Dreamweaver 8 was

owned by Macromedia but Adobe purchased the program and changed the

name from Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 to Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 with

the new version. Previous versions of Dreamweaver, in reverse

order: Adobe Dreamweaver CS3, Macromedia Dreamweaver 8, Dreamweaver

MX 2004, Dreamweaver MX, Dreamweaver 4, 3, 2, and 1.

However, newer is not necessarily better. Some features of

Dreamweaver 8 have been left out of the newer version, which

arguably make it a less good choice for some. It really depends

what you are using it for, and whether you need the new features in
