    Which software is better is totally subjective. The main thing is know how to code in the various disciplines needed for your web designing. If you have the knowledge of these disciplines, then even using Notepad could carry you a long way. Web design software would just help you shorten the work level once you learn how to use it fully. Some use design software that is graphics based with an option to switch to code mode only. I have CoffeeCup's software including Xara's Web Designer 9. At times Notepad++ comes in handy. Which is better for you is hard to say. Best to use the trail versions of any software you are interested in to see if it fulfills your requirements.

    If you're just newbie and wanna make first foot in the growing IT industry as a web designer, congratulations. You need to have knowledge of CSS(Cascading Style Sheets), HTML, Dreamweaver and Photoshop.

    My son is doing a design course. The college recommended that they all get a student subscription to the entire Adobe suite on the cloud. As a student he gets a massive discount so that the entire suite is available for about what one of the 30+ programs would normally cost. He's using about six of the programs including Dreamweaver and Photoshop in his course.

    All the professional web designers are always advertising that they use Photoshop to do their design.The best free alternative is GIMP.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    There are more alternatives to come. One of them is EvolveUI as a replacement of Fireworks (and developed by ex-Fireworks developers) which is being abandoned by Adobe. It’s currently only in early alpha stage but if they keep up the pace then there will soon be a serious program for web designers.
