Moving to OS10.15 my go-to editor (32bit) became useless, so I went shopping. I tried a lot of free editors but Bluefish was a clear winner for me. I use it mostly for html/css, Bluefish brought more of what I was used to than the other apps I tried. I hope the developer keeps it alive and well. Thanks, Bluefish people! p.s. MacUpdate, the current version is 2.2.12, please make note of this!
Holy crap, look at that screenshot above. This cluttering of menubars, ribbons, duplication of the Mac menubar on the app's windows all smacks of a Windows port. Heaven save us from the chaos of overly messy apps with complex user interfaces. Properly written Mac-specific software presents a nice clean workspace with all the extras available with just a click or two.
This app needs to die a proper death.
No stars as I haven't tried it.
