Last year, Macromedia impressed us with a high-calibre suite of Web-design, content-management, graphics-creation and site-building tools called Studio MX. This year, the dream package gets a face-lift.

The all-in-one Web design suite bundles Dreamweaver MX 2004, Fireworks MX 2004, Macromedia Flash MX 2004 (or a brand-new offering, Flash MX 2004 Professional), FreeHand MX and ColdFusion MX 6.1 Developer Edition. Of those, only FreeHand MX is not new. Individually, each program costs several hundred dollars, but Studio MX supplies them all for $899 (~£571; the product will ship in September).

We've reviewed the big three -- Flash, Fireworks and Dreamweaver. Whether you're ready to start your Web development career or improve your existing projects, there's definitely something here for everyone.
