  • There are many things Fireworks does and does better than Photoshop for "web" design. While many people don't understand Fireworks and it's potential, that doesn't negate the tool. Its slicing is far better than PS an AI, and being able to get CSS3 code from your designs is something neither PS or AI can do. Where are rollovers in PS and AI? Answer: Non existent.
    Being an object oriented vector app, Fireworks makes editing and manipulating objects so much faster than PS. No app is perfect, but it really has it's unique niche that it's good at. CS6 will move Fireworks even further ahead, although I do wish Adobe put even more effort into it.
    I have always been afraid that Adobe might kill it because some people (mistakenly) think it doesn't have a place because PS and AI are enough. They are not, and it seems like Adobe has realized that so far. Here's to hoping Fireworks has a long future!
  • Just wait! Soon enough I'll be releasing this PS plugin that gives you CSS3 from your designs:
