Last week, a new set of videos comparing Visual Studio 2005 with Macromedia Dreamweaver8 became available. You can view these videos here. This series shows how you can use Visual Studio 2005 to build, debug and deploy web sites more effortlessly than Dreamweaver8.
The free Visual Web Developer Express features most of the functionality outlined in these videos. In case you haven't tried out the Express edition yet, go to the VWD Express download site and get your copy today. It's only a 40MB download and comes with its own development web server, so you don't need IIS to create and debug your site. Check it out!
Good to see a comparison of visual studio and dreamweaver
