Aptana vs Dreamweaver Anyone using Aptana here? bcolflesh msg:3223983 6:45 pm on Jan 18, 2007 (gmt 0) A buddy just clued me in about Aptana. Is anyone using it as a replacement for Dreamweaver? Can you give me your feedback about it so far?

I'll have to let you know if I can ever get it downloaded. ;) The Windows version is close to 60MB. It's a sloooow download too. My browser estimates 12 more hours. They must be getting hammered.
The screenshots look nice.

After fooling with it yesterday, I only see one drawback for my purposes - it doesn't have a "Design View" - the preview tab actually opens the page in whatever browser you have setup and the result is not editable - still it's incredibly nice for free so far... limbo msg:3228551 11:28 am on Jan 23, 2007 (gmt 0)

Surely that's the best preview pane you could have ;)
I'm going to tinker with this over the weekend. It looks really nice but I wonder if it has the capabilities to be a
killer application, like the articles describe.
