    AlternativeTo is a good site for looking for alternatives to popular software products.

    With respect to DreamWeaver, it suggests the following.

    I recommend Bluegriffon, its based in Kompozer, the best wysiwyg web editor for linux (now dead).

    I don't think there is a real alternative to Dreamweaver.

    I use Quanta but it doesn't compare.

    For putting together a site template (I.e. the frame around the site's content) I recommend Quick and Easy Web Builder. It's pretty great, it's in Software Center and costs $20. There is a time limited demo available from their website.

    Note this cannot be used for editing an existing site. You're still stuck with Kompozer or the like for that.

    I would agree completely. But Dreamweaver is a bit of a behemoth these days, would you really want it to run a couple of sites? If so get yourself a Windows VirtualMachine and pay Adobe several hundreds of dollars for a license. If not you could do worse than learn a little HTML and CSS and use Bluefish, this is what I use for my own hobby site:

    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    What are the differences between Kompozer and Bluefish?

    Samigina, what do you mean by "now dead?" I note that Bluegriffon version 1.6.2 was just released less than a month ago, so what's now dead??

    He's saying Kompozer is dead, not Bluegriffon. Of course since they are now using the Gecko engine that is less of a concern.
