BBEdit 11 review: More productive for coders and writers alike

Tom Negrino | Dec. 2, 2014
I've been reviewing (and praising) BBEdit, the superb text editor from Bare Bones Software, in Macworld since 2008, and the application itself has been available since 1992, long predating OS X. Looking back, I realized something: BBEdit looks almost unchanged for many years. That's a key to its success--longtime users never lose their investments in familiarity and muscle memory, but BBEdit keeps getting better.

Bottom line

As with its previous versions, BBEdit 11 doesn't try to impress you with huge, flashy change-for-the-sake-of-change features. Instead, it quietly gets better, respects the investment its users have made in learning it, and is still your best choice in a full-featured text editor.
