3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't build on previous tools 21 Oct 2011
By Kaio TOP 500 REVIEWER
If, like me, you previously used Microsoft FrontPage 2003 or older versions that preceded this web editing tool, you have to learn some new tricks since Expression Studio 4 Web seems to use a different approach (such as Dynamic Webpage Template, among other things). Once you're acquainted with the new approach, all should be fine but people switching over from the most straightforward FrontPage could find the initial experience a bit discomforting. I was also a bit disappointed that some of the features in FrontPage were missing from this next generation product assumed to be a superset. I wish Microsoft retained everything of FrontPage but provided an option to use in the Expression Studio 4 Web mode, in which case everybody would be happy, but this approach doesn't seem to be the way Microsoft do things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to use and it just works... 9 Oct 2012
I've used Expression Web now for a couple of years, and I find it fantastic. But like all things new it takes time to acclimatise yourself to it. When I first installed it, it was like nothing I'd ever seen before and as a consequence I found it hard to use, because I had nothing to relate it to. It's certainly nothing like Adobe Dreamweaver, so if you're used to that package switching over to Expression Web is going to cause you huge dollops of frustration. But help is at hand, in the shape of LiveLessons by Que Publishing. Their author Morten Rand-Hendriksen has put together a DVD that's short precise and to the point and without waffle, so it's easy to follow. Armed with the information on the dvd, which is quick and easy to assimilate, you'll be up and running in no-time. And, the good news, it's available on Amazon.

I have a website written and maintained with Expression Web, but I don't use it anymore.
It's really clunky software, in summary it provides a complicated way to produce basic web designs, anything more than basic is possible but a struggle (I actually think Dreamweaver overcomplicates things too, I also have that too).

As already noted its now free to download from Microsoft, but really, I still wouldn't bother.

I suggest for most users go and take a look at Serif Webplus, its easy and fast to use and you can easily do quite impressive things that Expression Web and Dreamweaver take delight in making complicated. I use Webplus for my current website and for very occasional use I fall back on Expression Web to maintain an old website I still own as converting that over to Webplus just isn't worth it.

Expression Web and Dreamweaver belong in the past. There really is no need anymore to use software that forces their users to be programmers (would you do this with a word processor or a spreadsheet? no, you just use the software). There are plenty of good web design packs out there at reasonable price that produce impressive websites with good clean HTML code.

RIP Expression Web - thank goodness.
