So maybe I just don't understand why this is useful so I don't give a rating. But in my opinion the user interface is awful. Not only because of java but also because it is so cluttered. There are too many buttons. It's just not easy to use...
And as far as I can see this does not have useful support for css.
After all it's free and I don't want to depreciate the author's work.

Are you serious with submitting this to MacUpdate? PPC only and an interface that looks like a 1995 Windows program?

Version 5.4.2377

As it is a cross-platform Java application, the look of the application is limited to what libraries are available to the developer on all the various platforms. (Usually SWING interface libraries)

As for it being PPC.

That's more of a limitation of how MacUpdate allows developers to specify the platform the applications are developed for.

Ideally an application could be defined as being 'Java'. That would probably eliminate a lot of confusion.


It looks like a Windows 95 program because, well, basically it is. I have a bit of a soft spot for this app because it was probably my first ever programming tool, and it worked great! I can't fathom using it today and there are certainly better OSX-native apps, but I can't help getting a little bit nostalgic seeing that spider logo.
