Adobe has announced that its visual website creation tool GoLive has been discontinued.
GoLive started life as CyberStudio, an early What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) web editor, made by GoLive Systems. Adobe acquired GoLive Systems in 1999 and rechristened CyberStudio as Adobe GoLive.
In late 2005, Adobe acquired Macromedia and has since integrated many of Macromedia's products into its own product line, including DreamWeaver. Since then, the line has blurred between GoLive and DreamWeaver, according to Devin Fernandez, GoLive's product manager.
Now that more and more creative professionals are becoming web professionals, their needs have increased, and Dreamweaver is a better fit, says Fernandez.
