I know you are one powerhouse of a text editor. And we’ve been together for a long time; since that MacWorld Expo in Boston way back when. But, sad to say, you’re showing your age. The features are still there, and so is the speed, but the interface and the appearance, well…
If you look around at the competition, you’ll see some much more becoming looks. Now I am no fan of Sublime Text’s distinctly un-Mac-like preferences and settings, but you have to admit, it looks slick. Atom has “borrowed” most of that look, along with many of the the un-Mac-like parts.
And watch out for the oddly named Chocolat, it’s got a modern look and feels like a real Mac application. Panic does a fine job with all their software and Coda brings together the power of a web development IDE with the design sense of a leading developer. I wish that you were keeping up.
