That's a really hard question. It depends on so much. Overall I'd take Photoshop but it's what I've always had on my PC (even when I had it and didn't how how to use it )

They're both better at different things, though I'm pretty sure PS is better at more.

Default FW vs PS

Photoshop is primarily an image editing application. It works mostly in a raster format.
If you want to manipulate images, it is THE application.
It can be used for other purposes, but is first and foremost an image editing app.

Fireworks original purpose was for web design. It is not an image editing application(even tho some image manipulation is possible). In my opinion it is far superior to Photoshop for making web layouts and comps. It works in a vector format but saves your layout/comps to raster format for use on the web.

The best option is to have both, if you can afford it.

If you are just using downloaded web templates, use Photoshop.
If you want to create your own, use Fireworks.

You can download a trial version of each (as was mentioned previously) and try them out, then decide which works better for you.
