      "Good (closer to 3.5 stars), but still needs some work"

      December 21, 2011   |   By major-john

      Version: BBEdit 10.1

      Pros

      Very good with C++, but really could be improved as a HTML editor

      Cons

      1) No color palette for CSS that I could see. For CSS, it does present a single list of colors, but that is far-short of a color palette.

      2) <!-- #bbinclude "name" --><!-- end bbinclude --> really needs some work in that the file "name" contents are always presented via the "Update" tool. If "name" is super big, I assure you that is super-annoying, big-time. PageSpinner's <!-- ps_include="name" --> doesn't show the contents of "name". Could not BBEdit simply add a preference to show or not show with the tool "Update"?

      "Version 9.6.1 Buggy"

      November 15, 2010   |   By Mackidockie

      Version: BBEdit 9.6.1

      Pros

      Love this product. Used it for years. Versatile. No gratuitous eye candy. It's for real coders. Tech Support is superb.

      Cons

      Had to go back to version 9.5.1. Version 9.6.1 is buggy. Crashes, sudden displays of unknown and unrequested characters.

      Summary

      Still the best on the market. A coder's true friend. History tells me that Bare Bones Software will correct all the current version's problems. Soon, I hope!

      None. it is just a good solid program.

      Summary

      You won't be disappointed. Wish it worked on PC.

      "For text editing there is no product better than BBedit"

      November 27, 2009   |   By thillson

      Version: BBEdit 9.3

      Pros

      You can open just about any file with BBedit, it will search and replace almost any character in the file. Great for any programmer who wants to format their code for easy editing. Has more options than you can imagine using.

      Cons

      It is a little over priced for a text editor, but they have a free product for people who do not want to pay for a text editor.

      Summary

      Great product well worth the money if you have a need for BBedit's features.

      "Agree with TimGavin"

      December 08, 2008   |   By grh-akl

      Version: BBEdit 9.0.2

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      What were they thinking? Or have I missed something? The new "Find" tool is totally unusable for me. No option for choosing multiple documents, for example. I, too, am reverting to v 8.

      (But what does tim mean when he says "I'll continue to use 8 until Panic gets around to adding folding to Coda")

      One star. Otherwise, v 8 continues to deserve five.

      Version: BBEdit 9.0.2

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      It is a nice editor but for a huge price.

      There are another good programs for a little price.
      If you want a powerful tool than you are right here.

      "Simply the best..."

      October 25, 2008   |   By arcturus1

      Version: BBEdit 9.0.2

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      The following new features in Release 9 make a big difference in my work with html:
      1. Projects
      2. Auto-complete for html tags
      3. Edit in search windows
      For working with large web sites, nothing else comes close. This is a mature, powerful text editor.

      "Still stuck in 68k land."

      December 06, 2007   |   By krazytekn0

      Version: BBEdit 8.7.1

      Pros

      If you ever need to reverse the text order in a document this might be useful, but when have you ever needed to do that.

      Cons

      BBEdit is so stuck in the dark ages of programming that it's not even funny. It touts itself as a source-code editor, Apple Xcode works many orders of magnitude better and faster and comes free with Mac OS X, as well as a free download. The guy behind BBEdit seems to think that his version of TextEdit is worth as much as Apple's entire operating system. If you want to try it go ahead, the program hasn't been substantively changed in 7 or 8 years. The developer knows nothing about the current ways to do things in OS X and is a left over 68k mac guy that refuses to learn. DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS.
