As for me, I use Dreamweaver to design HTML prototypes.
Its easier to give a tangible form to followin using HTML prototypes.
- site structure
- navigation flow
- information architecture
This format can be easily understood and discussed by the tech, ui design and business teams. This is merely an execution tool and not to be used for creative problem solving or visualizing ideas.
Advantages of HTML prototypes.
- Its is interactive.
- Its easy to create and modify. It can be created in no time.
- Dummy real time results can be simulated without writing any backend code.
- Its tangible enough for the teams to discuss about it.
