I have the trial version of this product and I really like it. I really love itd XHTML support and valid code completion. I did how ever notice their is no support for HTML5 and CSS3. Will there be an update with this soon? I also love the smart auto complete and src, href functions it has. I have twice as much for an editor and they dont come with nice features like that. Great app. Has potential to becoming one of the leaders for mac html editors. Also not sure if its because I have trail version but crashes when I try to use custom theme in preferences.

Been using this app for years and am glad to see it's still supported and advancing. It's small footprint and nimble action are both key assets to me. Tabbed UI is fantastic for working as well.

I see that the Mac App Store doesn't show the sale price, so I'll buy thru MacUpdate. Purists may object (or not) but I find convenience and time savings in going through the App Store. Continuing that theme, my vote for features I would value is code completion, help with getting code syntax right (tho I've just registered for a tech college course on CSS), and code checking. I use Dreamweaver for heavy lifting. But there are small sites and stand-alone code sections (to drop into WordPress, for example) for which I would like to use a more nimble but still "hand-holding" app. Look forward to seeing your efforts.

I guess I should be happy this isn't completely dead. I really dreaded when this program was sold, and even after the developer enthusiastically assured me that there were great things coming, I had a sneaky suspicion that this great program would die on the vine. I am pleased to see there are still updates coming out, but Before Dawn bought this a looong time ago and there's really been very little added. Again, I guess I should be grateful that it's still getting updates and that there hasn't been a false version number inflation just in order to get more money (yet). I'd love to see some more action and features added to keep in line with other HTML editors out there. Textmate and Coda both have stumbled in their last versions, so it's a ripe time to carpe diam with skEdit.

Excellent application. It's syntax highlighting is better when compared to Smultron (which got confused when I used PHP echo calls with escaped quotation marks) and I love the HTML tag auto-close feature. The tabs are really useful too as I tend to work with multiple files at once. One thing I would like to see changed is the tab design. It just doesn't fit into the modern Mac OS X Lion interface anymore in my opinion.

This has always been one of my favourite applications and I previously participated in the 4.0 beta program. Since I have had problems with my licence I have contacted Before Dawn Solutions many times but with no response to date. The app is available through the app store. I'm sure it's just as good as it was before the acquisition by before Dawn. I would just voice some concern over the developer's ability to support this app.

Latest version that apparently makes it compatible for sale in the AppStore is a bit buggy. Upgrading my previous version of the software, completely nuked all my preferences, my registration, even my snippets. I'm now having to start over, configuring everything. This sucks. I've contacted the developer to find out what I need to do to get my registration back, but it's been several hours and no reply. I've written to this developer twice since he acquired it and have not gotten anything back. Unfortunately, it looks like this once great software is going to wither and die at the hands of a developer who doesn't either know what he's doing or care. Sad. With Textmate also in the same boat, I guess I am going to finally move over to Panic's stuff and buy Coda. At least with Panic, I know they will respond to emails and offer better support of their products.

Downloaded the demo and I like the editor/layout. One concern is, if it is still being developed/updated or not.

I've been trying to get the perl userscript called markdown to work with this. It works for textwrangler, but not this. Is there an alternative anywhere? The script adds html paragraph tags to some text.

This looks really cool... I just wish php documents would also update as you type like html documents do. I guess it would have to have its own access to the php engine like Taco HTML Edit does.

It's amazing how many HTML editors I've used... Of all of those, with out a doubt, skEdit is the easiest to use, has the best interface, and is fully Mac native. Version 4.0 is great except for a few things: 1. There needs to be an "Upload All" button in the toolbar. Also, it should be able to detect which files have non-uploaded changes and only upload those files. 2. The tabs show up despite my preferences setting. The settings take effect normally, but when you open a new window, the tabs come back. That's all I can think of so far. I have Mac OS X 10.4.11. My copy of skEdit is registered.

This is a great text editor I've been using since v3.5. Although, there's no exact comparison, skEdit 4.0 contains the important features other contenders (textmate, coda and bbedit) offer. Then, developed with simplicity and ease of use, makes skEdit in disposable. The developer seems to have put forth much effort with v4 and continues to rival what it takes entire companies to create.

I've been using skEdit as my primary editor for a few years now. It is by far the best HTML editor out there. The previous version was already pretty good, version 4 is amazing. I've been working professionally with the beta versions for a year. The developer worked very hard on it, was very responsive and just delivered the best editor out there. Stop looking for an editor, you found it.

I mainly use skEdit for writing websites (XHTML and CSS) and I just love the app's auto completion feature and the availability of project management capabilities. Before, I used jEdit but besides having many plugins and enhanced Java writing features, I prefer skEdit as it's faster and the auto completion feature is just snappier as it presents attributes a certain Html object better than jEdit. For example, creating a table will present a list of possible attributes while typing a space so one can immediatly see what's available. The GUI is also more polished and not cluttered with unimportant options. Lifelong updates are obviously a big gain, as well. The only downside for me is that the project management feature doesn't remember the pages I had open last time so I have to manually open them every time. So far, my favourite editor on the Mac. And in my personal cost benefit analysis it's the best commercial website editor on the planet.

The latest version is a big release, this app has matured quite a bit, it's well worth a look. It's true that there was a potentially nasty undo bug, but I was lucky not to see it too much, and it's gone in the latest version. The addition of tabs, FTP/STP/WebDav, working with external FTP apps, etc. etc.
