For web graphics, there is only one tool that I use -- Fireworks. I
have been using it since Fireworks 4 and I can not live without it.
Its unique blend of vector and raster tools allows me to work on any
graphic/layout quickly and easily. I am now using Fireworks MX 2004
and I love it.

Why use 3 tools (Illustrator to Photoshop to ImageReady) when
Fireworks will do it all for you?
