I've tried every markdown editor for Mac I can find, and Mou is simply the best -- supports the widest variety of markdown flavors (Github Flavored, Multimarkdown) and offers you some options like use spaces instead of tabs to indent that I couldn't find anywhere else. Superbly easy and pleasant to use.

As others have mentioned, the activation process is a little cumbersome -- really, all I wish for there is that Find and Replace It would detect that I already have an activated copy when I install an update, and not make me go track down the right activation key again :)
But that said, everything else about this utility is great -- easy to use, remembers where you were and what you were doing last time when you relaunch it, allows simple, wildcard, and regex searches, gives you plenty of options in filtering which files are searched.
One enhancement that would be nice: there is already a good file previewer/editor, but it would be great if it automatically highlighted instances of what I'm searching for -- that would be especially helpful on wildcard and regex searches, to ensure that I'm finding what I think I am.
But the bottom line is that this is by far the best mass search and replace tool that I have been able to find for Mac (and I look really hard for these things).

Thanks, Philippe! I missed that.

I'm a little fanatical about finding the ideal code editor. I've used Sublime Text, Coda, Espresso, BBEdit, Komodo Edit, and quite a few more. Chocolat is the one I keep coming back to when I need to get things done. Its autocompletion/code-hinting isn't quite as good as ST2's or Komodo's yet, but there was a huge improvement in 1.5, and it's getting there - it's actually better for CSS and HTML than ST2, not quite as good for JavaScript and other programming languages. The mixin model using Node is brilliant -- just wish a few more developers were taking advantage of it, but that being said the Emmet mixin is superior to any other Emmet implementation that I've used. And though it does have its quirks and bugs, there are far fewer, I think, than in ST2 (or the ST3 beta.
If you spend a lot of your time writing code, this is at least worth a try.

Eddie is an excellent light-weight code editor, with many features you'd expect from the heavyweights like Chocolat and Sublime text. Do be aware that it is geared more toward Objective-C, Java, and the like than web languages like HTML, JS, and CSS. You will find that the syntax highlighting is fine for the latter, but there is not much in code-auto-completion, unless I'm missing it.
