I have tried Espresso many times and I really want to like it, however its not a good fit for me. When it comes to design, I still continue to use CSS Edit for my needs it is/was hands down one of the best software programs that ever lived. Please bring it back.

Download link no longer works. Can we get a mirror of this on MacUpdate?

CSSEdit was rolled into Espresso.

Yes, Misha, it was rolled into Espresso. And not everybody likes the "one program to rule them all" approach to programming.

It really would be nice to see CSSEdit 3. I still use CSSEdit 2, but it's showing its age (though I was able to hack it to recognize some CSS3....)

I am glad I was able to download CSSEdit from Macupdate. I couldn't find it on MacRabbit.com. Too bad it was discontinued. It was a great application (and still is).

Just to add my voice to the people mourning the death of this application. CSSEdit was a major part of my daily workflow for years. I own Coda too, and love it, but sometimes you just want a clean, effective CSS editor, and that's what this is.

After a couple of years away from the web design business I was very sad to find that CSSEdit has been killed off. I have no need for Espresso (Coda does me fine, thanks).

After this length of time I guess the developers are unlikely to reverse their decision, but if you miss CSSEdit, as I do, I'd encourage you to email them and politely ask them to consider resuming development.

I realise that small businesses only have finite resources available, but if there's enough demand then I'm sure they can justify the time and effort to keep it up to date. In the meantime I'll be crossing my fingers the old version keeps working as long as possible...

even if this genius developer has stopped the updates, I've found a way to have it running fullscreen on lion with css window floating on top. Just use afloat and menuanddockless and you are ready to go.

One of the best apps ever written for the Mac.

Why oh why did they integrate it into Espresso and remove the standalone?

Espresso is $79. I would pay $100 to get CSSEdit alone. It was that good.

Of course I can use CSSEdit within Espresso but it doesn't have that instant responsiveness that CSSEdit had, and it crashes.

I can't agree you more.

Agreed. Still, at least CSSEdit still works under Lion.

It was a sad day when I read that CSSEdit was no more. This is such an irreplaceable app (really guys -- don't you realize you have a LOCK on this market??!??)

In one of the most ill-considered development decisions since Netscape turned "Navigator" into "Communicator", they've crammed it into Espresso, so they can compete with a dozen other does-everything-our-way "web coding environments".

Come on guys. I use the text editor I like, the graphics editor I like, the FTP app I like, and up until now, CSSEdit had a valued place in that workflow.

You have a loyal customer base here (just read the other reviews), but you won't sell us the product? Where's the sense in that? Please bring CSSEdit back!

What a major bummer. Sad to see one of the big web development stars on the Mac come to such abandon. Like many others, I tried Espresso, and didn't care for it. I don't need a site management program or anything like that. I've been handling huge web sites with nothing but an FTP program and a text editor for a decade. CSSEdit fit lovely into that role, and while it wasn't the best tool for making sure everything looked good in Windows (but really, what is on the Mac) and it hadn't been updated in ages, it's still been used by me to write thousands of lines of CSS over the years. Bah. Three stars for the memories. I'd stay using one operating system for years if I could; but I can't.

Today, it's a sad day: While Espresso 2.0 is born, CSSEdit died. CSSEdit still is my favorite tool to develop new web designs although it lacks CSS3 support. Its ease of use makes CSSEdit a fast and clear application that offers unequaled opportunities. Use it in combination with your favorite text/HTML editor and you won't ever need one of those WYSIWYG code creators to make nice-looking websites. CSSEdit is a good reason to stay with Snow Leopard. I still can't believe that this great little application is not updated anymore. Really a huge loss!
