Adobe Muse improves HTML output in Beta 3
Adobe’s new “Muse” HTML authoring tool has attracted huge interest & while stirring up controversy about whether it’s possible for a visual tool to generate good code. Knowing that the team was working hard on improvements, I urged them to post details that might assuage concerns. No, they said, let’s just do our jobs, then show the results.
Now the team has posted Muse beta 3 for download and has detailed the output-related improvements in this release. “The primary focus of code improvements in Beta 3,” they write, “are around cross-browser compatibility and reducing page load times and data usage.” Other improvements around SEO & accessibility are in the works.
I think that people who care about high quality code output will be pleased with the progress, and I encourage you to give the team your candid feedback.
