Dreamweaver is shit

Or at least my perception of it has been tainted by a website I am attempting to maintain that has been bolted together using dreamweaver. Note I did not use the word “constructed” or “built”. I prefer bolted because its a mess.
Javascript is everywhere, most of which is bug ridden crap. Its being used to load images and has replaced the humble “link” on half the website. This has meant Google cannot see half the website which from a business point of view is critical. If the search engine cannot see your website then no one will find it!
Images everywhere. Every time a page was requested over 40 images were requested from the server. This is mad, on what appears to be a plain text website. with no adverts. 25% of the images happened to be used as 1 pixel spacers. This is absolute madness!
