    I switched about a year ago, to a 12" G4 iBook that I love.

    Just wondering, what text editor do you prefer? I've been using
    TextWrangler and like it.

    Back in the days of Systems 6 & 7 and I had a couple of Macs at work
    and used old version of BBEdit which I liked.

    Thanks in advance,

  2. BBEdit is alive and well, and has been developed extensively for use in
    web development. You can find information about it here:

    It's not surprising you like TextWrangler if you like BBEdit --
    TextWrangler takes the place of "BBEdit Lite," which was the free
    version of BBEdit from those same folks. There are a lot of
    similarities between the two, obviously.

    Yes yes yes yes yes oh oh oh. Am I keen on it or what? It has all the
    features I need, like syntax colouring, unlimited undo/redo across file
    saves, etc.
    This was also good, but ironically in those days it really was a
    bare-bones editor, whereas now it's rather more porky. Still, since you
    can add billyuns of bytes of memory who cares.

  4. If you need something beyond TextEdit or vi, I recommend TextMate for
    coding on OS X. I am an unapologetic vi user, and TextMate has won me over.
