    Riddle me this:

    Dreamweaver was criticized for writing poorly constructed code. Back then (5 - 10 years?) your average website was obviously much simpler than websites are now.

    Fast forward to modern times. New apps are coming out with the same value-add Dreamweaver was selling back then. They undoubtedly have more robust technology than Dreamweaver; however, websites have also gotten much more complex.

    Why do people think these new incarnations will be any better? Dreamweaver was OK for building amateur'ish websites back then, [new app X] will be good for building amateur'ish websites now.

    I don't get how people are surprised about this?

      Well the criticism of Dreamweaver were unfair and really only coming from newbs and people who don't code. It was just meant to be a text editor with live view. Which means DreamWeaver is awesome if you can code.
