While some supporting evidence exists for using Fireworks for web design (see previous post), there are additional time saving benefits that boost its awesomeness factor.
FIREWORKS FOR WIREFRAMES
Fireworks demands a bit of a learning curve when using it for wireframes, certainly a steeper one than other popular software like OmniGraffle and Balsamiq. But wireframing with Fireworks is much more practical if you’re also using it for web design. You don’t have to copy and paste text from a pdf file —all text, titles, icons and image placeholders are already there.
