But are people satisfied with what’s available? We canvassed the opinions of some of the industry’s leading designers and the consensus was that, while popular apps such as Photoshop, Fireworks and Illustrator might be useful, even essential to their work, they were seen as very far from perfect. In fact it seems that right now, for the web designers we spoke to, the perfect web design app simply does not exist.
