    • Very poor HTML helping macros, without any detection of simple common errors. No preview at all. The only good thing is that it is the only open source HTML editor in which code highlighting works, but Dreamweaver has some more features. Much more.

Dream Weaver is good. Reduces the code writing for developers. But there is also an alternative for it. TemplateToaster, completely eliminates the requisite of writing code. It does produce the source code ( PHP, HTML,and CSS) itself, and all the very big job for the designer/developer is just to use its options for designing a web template.

I have moved to TemplateToaster from Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver is still my love, but I give much priority to TemplateToaster because it’s the latest software having so many features. I feel like it has been built for the people like me who are more into designing despite of being front-end coder. And TemplateToaster let me concentrate on designing more than coding.

Use codeview for HTML, CSS and JS

Also handy for selecting complicated areas on huge pages via the design view

Dreamweaver is good for graphic designers that
don't want to get messy with code -
It's good for creating basic sites, but don't get too excited.

Use Aptana or Notepad++.

I use, and love notepad++ but it is in no way a replacement for dreamweaver. Check out Microsoft Expression Web, it is a better alternative in that it is not only a text editor, but also does the WYSIWYG stuff dreamweaver does.
