What is Microsoft's Frontpage?
Microsoft's FrontPage is a lot more than just web design software. In fact, to those just getting their feet wet in the ocean of web development tools, it's probably more like a dream come true.
With its pre-designed themes, templates, and style sheets, FrontPage can help you build and publish a professional looking web site in just a few hours.
With the latest release, FrontPage 2002, Microsoft has taken this software package to a new level.
Built-in templates and wizards allow you to create a web site in only a matter of minutes, and then customize it to fit your needs. You can easily add graphics, integrate photo galleries, add backgrounds, create image maps, use pre-designed themes and adjust fonts and formatting in a WYSIWYG manner.
Microsoft has integrated features for web site creation with web site management, e-commerce, and graphics editing tools built right in. FrontPage 2002 even has the ability to help you better understand your visitors through usage analysis reports or get the lowdown on your site's performance with enhanced reports.
Many users will also find FrontPage's interface easy to use since it looks and works like Microsoft Office. As part of the Microsoft Office family of products, it shares similar toolbars, menus, clipboards, and familiar features such as the customizable themes and background spell checking.
Since FrontPage is broadly available and broadly used you can find a wide range of web sites, books, training classes, web professionals and user groups to help you along the way. You can also choose from hundreds of web hosting companies that support creating and editing web sites directly on their servers with FrontPage extensions, and select from a variety of third party add-ons that extend the functionality of FrontPage even further.
FrontPage is a great, feature packed, total design solution. With its extremely affordable price tag looks like a bargain compared to the other popular design packages such as Dreamweaver or Adobe Golive. While they are also great prices, the 'learning curve' is a bit steeper, and they are recommended for experienced users.
For the beginner, and even the intermediate user, we think Microsoft's FrontPage is by far the best solution to meet both web design and web publishing needs at a very reasonable price.
