    I think it's going to be harder on the web. Even if the web stops changing entirely today, its way more complicated than print. The web is fluid. You don't know anything about the device looking at your site. There is movement. There is interaction. There are BUGS! That's harder than print, where you largely control the final product.

    That said, there is incentive for better tooling. Users want it. Companies want to make money from it. Obviously Adobe very much wants to build the tool(s) we all use for web design. They are trying.

    But there are others that want to as well. I think of:


    and algorithmic stuff like

    https://thegrid.io/ and others I forget...

    and even just website builders like

    http://squarespace.com/http://virb.com/ and even WordPress and other hosted CMSs

    All these are part of this weird place we are in right now - where the tooling is anything but solved.
