History[edit | edit source]
GoLive was originally created by GoNet Communication, which became GoLive Systems. Adobe acquired GoLive in 1999 to replace its own struggling PageMill product. However, Adobe GoLive soon met fierce competition from Macromedia Dreamweaver. In April 2005, Adobe and Macromedia announced that the companies and their product lines would be merged.
After Adobe's acquisition was completed in December 2005, GoLive was replaced by Dreamweaver CS3 in Adobe Creative Suite 3. Development and sales of GoLive 9, the final version, ended on April 28, 2008. GoLive users were offered upgrades to Adobe Dreamweaver along with a GL2DW site migration extension and guide.
