Unable to justify Adobe's steep upgrade prices for CS4, I started looking for alternatives to what has become a bloated, slow and expensive suite of software tools. Switching from Dreamweaver to Coda has been a welcome surprise.

Coda is much cheaper than Dreamweaver, and lighter - 50MB vs. Dreamweaver's 400MB+, faster, and much more intuitive. The feature set is more useful and lacks the bloat that has made Dreamweaver such a slug.

The interface is gorgeous compared to the mess of palettes in Dreamweaver - the CSS editing mode is brilliant, and the text hinting while editing code is beautifully implemented. I haven't used the terminal tools yet, as I am more of a designer than a programmer.

Setup was incredibly easy. Intuitive interface, simple, easy-to-understand instructions, and as advertised, very Apple-like.

I concur the price is a little steep, but I love this program.

Any busy designer will appreciate and benefit from seeing quick color palettes based on a photo or existing logo color - or simply experimenting and testing different color theories - something most creative suites don't bother with at all.

In response to other comments... the UI may not be 100% Mac compliant (neither are most of Apple's own apps), but the UI does not get in the way of using this program - it is very intuitive. Similarly, whatever programming tools were used to build the program don't effect it's performance negatively...
