Adobe Dreamweaver vs Adobe Muse in our news:
2014 - Adobe Muse simplified professional website creation
Muse is the new kid on the block when it comes to the tools in Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite. It makes web design simple enough for those who aren’t professional graphic designers or developers to do it has been questionable. It has been around for less than two years, but Adobe has iterated major revisions roughly every three months - making significant strides in features and performance over a relatively short period of time. There are plenty of other Web design platforms out there. One that comes to mind immediately is Weebly. The primary difference is that you can use Weebly for free, while Adobe Muse is only available as a part of the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. To be fair to Muse, though, there are fees associated with Weebly for more advanced sites that include multimedia elements or integrate e-commerce capabilities.
2013 - Adobe updates Muse to take on WordPress
Adobe announced a welcome update for its website design application Muse, which is available as a standalone for non-Creative Cloud subscribers for $14.99 a month in a yearly plan, or $24.99 month to month. The update adds the ability to publish your site to a subdirectory on either your FTP server or Business Catalyst, for easier site management. Creative Cloud subscribers get to host five sites on Catalyst, while purchasers of standalone Muse get one site. Finally, the Muse team has improved performance of sites built using the tool, as well as ensuring compatibility with all commonly used Web browsers, taking advantage of newer techniques like CSS3 when it's available. So we may assume that Adobe Muse is now more functional than WordPress
