An update to previous review now at version 3.3
Well Its now the 1st jan 2010 and I am still using Antenna. It has had a major revision
and is at 3.3 now. I am still using it every day and my opinion as this is the best web design software for the average person has not diminished. It has had many enhancements and is simply superb. It is so easy to use and yet is also fully featured.
Also now a large number of templates are available now although to be honest it is so
good as a WYSIWYG tool that I dont bother with them. The user forum is very active
and everyone is very helpful for eaven the simplest query. Also the software designer also responds. You dont get that with Microsoft!

Intuitive Web design tool
I tried Dreamweaver..GoLive both are powerhouses but when it came to building a site Antenna Web Design Studio won hands down. The product is so intuitive that it makes making websites fun right out of the box...very little if any learning curve. You read a pdf file of instructions and away you go. It handles flash, video, QT, animations, rollovers, theme pages anything you want... Things stay were you put them!
I give it a 10/10..can not recommend it enough!

It is the best web design tool out there...
If you are searching for a web desing solution by all means you MUST try this one. In the past I have used both frontpage and dreamweaver and I had to spend many hours every time I wanted to change the whole desing of my main page and try another one. With antenna you can easily drag & drop text and images and move them in the screen. In this way you can change the whole style in a minute. It supports many advanced features, like template pages, forms, html tags and in a more user -friendly way.

Antenna is a gem
I wanted to do a web site for my local swimming club and also my company.
I looked at Dreamweaver and Microsoft Frontpage ,bought the books and had a go.
I have both sofwares at work.I simply lost interest in both. Far too steep a learning curve. Yes they are all singing and all dancing but I havent the time to go on a course for two weeks to use them. Then I found Antenna. At first I was mystified but I perceveered and within 24 hours it all fell into place. Its simply brilliant. It is very capable, and is a proper web site development tool. It is not like some a series of templates that you can edit. In fact their are no templates and their are some very good grafix parts to the software but it does pay to have a grafix package as well. But that applies to dreamweaver and frontpage as well.
The instructions are very helpfull and the user forum covers most problems you may encounter. It is truly a visual piece of software and all I would say is give it a try. Its free to download and stick with it for a few hours. You wont regret it.
