Adobe makes great products plain and simply. I have to give them credit for making a good quality tool. While using dreamweaver to create websites is no longer my preference, it's still got everything you need. Some people love it, some don't. I just prefer...

Easy to use and many temples to use and plugins. And a button to post the changes.

Resource intensive. Rendering/preview pane isn't very accurate compared to free tools like Pingendo. Doesn't have native integration for Bootstrap. It's not free.

Limited for more advanced users although it is possible to do manual coding when needed although an experienced coder would likely use WordPress
