Adobe GoLive CS2

Adobe GoLive was a WYSIWYG HTML editor marketed by Adobe Systems.


GoLive was originally created by GoNet Communication, which became GoLive Systems.[1] Adobe acquired GoLive in 1999 to replace its own struggling PageMill product.[2][3] 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.[4]

After Adobe's acquisition was completed in December 2005,[5] GoLive was replaced by Dreamweaver CS3 in Adobe Creative Suite 3.[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.[6]
