Freeway 1.0: DTP Merges with Web Publishing

Send Article to a Friend

SoftPress Systems has shipped the $299 Freeway 1.0, software that uses a page and pasteboard metaphor to create Web sites. Items on pages come from master pages or are inserted into special boxes, such as GIF boxes or HTML boxes. Freeway has tremendous appeal for desktop publishers who want to use existing skills and who require a great deal of layout flexibility and control; however, those who like to putter in their HTML will shy away from Freeway's table-based HTML. Freeway competes primarily with NetObjects Fusion, which also renders layouts in HTML via extensive table tagging. We spent hours working with Fusion for a review in TidBITS 391 earlier this year; having spent only a preliminary half-hour with Freeway, we already feel more comfortable with it than we ever felt with Fusion. Freeway requires at least a 68040-based Mac and 5 to 9 MB RAM, depending on your processor. A 30-day demo is available as a 5 MB download.
