Komodo Edit 6 is now out, based on Firefox 3.5 sources

I'm a big fan of Komodo Edit for editing PHP, HTML and other code. And now, Komodo Edit 6 is officially out! Komodo Edit 6 has been in Beta for quite some time, and I've been using the Beta versions for months. This release means Edit's older brother, Komodo IDE, also made it to version 6. Some of what version 6 brings to the table: Faster performance, since it's based on Firefox 3.5 -- It's...

Notepad++ 5.8.1 now out, with upgraded Scintilla editor component

Notepad++ is a great open source text editor. In addition to being open source, it's extensible and incredibly nimble for a beast of its power. I often use Java-based jEdit or XUL-based Komodo Edit, and compared to those two, Notepad++ is blazing fast. The Notepad++ team released 5.8 a short while ago, but it was worth holding out on the upgrade -- because they've now released 5.8.1 with a couple...

elRTE is a comprehensive, free rich text editor for the Web

Formatting text for the Web is an ongoing quest. HTML has a fairly steep learning curve, but people still need to blog, comment, and somehow format text. Personally, I'm a huge Markdown fan. In my opinion, if you're trying to write a blog post with formatting that can't be expressed in Markdown you're putting too much emphasis on the formatting. Still, not everyone likes Markdown, and sometimes...

Awesome fullscreen text editor WriteMonkey adds more features in v0.9.9

To use a cliche, the best just got a bit better. WriteMonkey, one of the very best full-screen freeware text editors for Windows, has now been released as 0.9.9 Final. This final version was preceded by no less than three release preview versions, so I expect it to be quite bug-free (also, I have been writing all of my posts using WriteMonkey for the past few months, and it has yet to crash...

Early build of Scribefire extension now available for Google Chrome

As time goes on, the list of extension dealbreakers for users pondering the jump from Firefox to Chrome keeps getting shorter. You may soon be able to cross off one of Firefox's most popular extensions for bloggers: Scribefire is now available as a Google Chrome extension. It's not as full-featured as its FF cousin by any stretch, but this is an alpha build. By the time it's all said and done,...

Zosh document signer for iPhone stabs fax machines in their useless hearts

If you still regularly encounter documents that need to be filled out, signed and -- ugh! -- faxed, get ready for some good news. A new iPhone app called Zosh lets you apply your signature to all manner of documents, and send them off without the use of outmoded '80s tech that should have died alongside of 8-tracks and Betamax. If you detect a hint of anger in my tone, it's because I frickin'...

Paint.Net plugin lets you view and edit Photoshop PSD files

The aptly-named Paint.Net PSD Plugin is one of those pieces of software which pretty much spells it all out right in the name. It's a plugin...for Paint.Net...(wait for it)...which lets you open files saved in Photoshop's PSD format. Download the zip archive, dump the included PhotoShop.dll file into your Paint.Net FileTypes folder (usually c:\program files\Paint.Net\FileTypes), and you're...

Notepad GNU is Windows Notepad on steroids

When you ask about a free alternative to Windows Notepad, chances are good that Notepad ++ will be recommended to you. Another alternative which doesn't get mentioned as often is Notepad GNU. It occupies the space in between Notepad and Notepad ++. Notepad GNU does offer loads of features, though not quite as many as Notepad ++. Which is fine, because plenty of people just want Notepad with a...

WordPress gets a better spellchecker, After the Deadline

Automattic, the company behind WordPress, has acquired a spiffy spellchecker called After The Deadline. It's now available on Wordpress blogs, and you can enable it in the Wordpress visual editor by clicking the ABC button with the green checkmark (If you're using a WordPress.org install, get the plugin). After the Deadline is smarter than the spellcheckers we're used to in desktop apps, because...

Pixelmator 1.4 adds new paint engine

Pixelmator has earned a following by doing the tasks most people use Photoshop for, but doing them much cheaper. That's truer than it's ever been in the new version 1.4, which adds a new painting engine, new brushes, and support for Photoshop brush formats. If you're a professional photographer, Photoshop CS4 might be worth $700 to you, but if you're someone who just needs powerful drawing and...
