If you want more control over your blog or want to design your own Web page, this group of apps can help you from start to finish.
Sandvox is an easy-to-use, WYSIWYG tool for creating Web sites. It's perfect for less technical users who don't want to edit HTML but do want an attractive site that ranks well in search-engine results. This app's intuitive interface is organized around a straightforward toolbar on top and a site outline on the side. You can drag and drop images, text, and even movies, and you can see what your changes look like in real time while you're working. More-experienced Web developers might feel constrained by Sandvox's simple, code-free workflow, but Web design novices will love how quickly they can get started, with more than 50 premade design templates and built-in "pagelets" that let you add extra functionality and content from sites like Amazon, Digg, and FlickrRead full review
Coda from Panic Software offers a sleek, trimmed-down alternative to expensive Web design suites. This one-window Web design app combines all the tools you need to build a site, with an emphasis on creating a fast, easy, integrated workflow.
Coda's collaboration tools let you seamlessly work together with others, and a built-in FTP sidebar--using the power of Panic's powered-up Transmit 4--helps you get your site updated quickly. Hand-coding experts will like the full-featured CSS and text editors (although no code folding here), and editing multiple files side by side in split panes is a breeze. Coda also has tons of time-saving features, including Clips (for frequently used code snippets), an Open Quickly window (for fast access to specific files), and integrated subversion. We particularly like the powerful Find and Replace tools, which let you drag-and-drop global changes to your code. Read full review
This free, GPL-licensed FTP browser is a lean, mean, file-managing machine. Cyberduck can communicate with standard FTP volumes as well as SFTP, WebDAV, Google Docs, Google Storage, and Amazon S3. The application easily manages bookmarks with an OS X-styled drawer, and it's easy to import your bookmarks from other file-transfer apps if you want to try Cyberduck out. We like the quick-connect drop-down, which allows you to pop into recently accessed or bookmarked servers in a snap. We generally found both upstream and downstream file transfers to be speedy.
