Pros A lot of my clients come to me asking for a easy way to edit their websites. I handcode www.kerstinfossen.com but if your code is clean it works in ANY product (dream weaver, windows expression web, cms) etc. INEXPENSIVE! EASY! WORKS!
Cons The only con is that sometimes you can mess things up and not know how to fix it... but with a little help... overall it saves time and money. So the cons are not that bad!
Summary Two Thumbs up! My clients love it! And all sites can use this if programmed correctly! You can see some examples of websites programmed with the capability of using this product here: http://www.kerstinfossen.com/services_cms.html
I hope that helps!!! Best of luck and have fun editing!
Pros not able to find much yet
Cons difficult to use - documentation leaves much to be desired
Summary Tasks that were super easy in Front Page seem to require many more steps in Expression Web
Pros nothing at all
Cons it never turns out right and you constantly have to fight with it to get it to look like you want.
Summary Like Windows XP professional which is better than Windows 7. I thank God I purchased Microsoft FrontPage before it was discontinued. I still use Microsoft FrontPage to this very day, November 2011! Expression Web 4 totally sucks!
Pros Many features and robust interface
Cons It is Slow !!! Takes 30+ seconds to open sites (even small sites with less than 100 files). Also slow to put files.
Summary This would be a 4-5 star review if it wasnt so slooow. Microsoft: please speed Expression Web!!!!
Pros None, really
Cons Not a dreamweaver, not a newb editor like coffe cup, I couldn't figure out what this was. Did MS rip Macromedia Dreamweaver from 2003? But why? This is 2012. MS is really confused.
Summary If you are new to webdesign, go with software that are for beginners. You don't even have to pay for them.
If you already know what you are doing, Expression Web offers nothing you can use. Stick with Dreamweaver. You will hate yourself for wasting 10 min. of you time installing this thing.
What was MS thinking? If people really wanted something in between, they would go grab Dreamweaver MX. LOL
